Marseille to Crusie to 3pts at Home to Struggling Nimes
Marseille missed out on 2pts last weekend when all they could manage was a goalless draw away at relegation battlers Dijon. Nimes gave a good account of themselves last time out, only going down 1-0 at home to title-challenging Lille. Nimes remain bottom of the Ligue 1 table, 20pts and 14 positions below this weekend’s guests Marseille who sit in 6th.
Marseille have had the better of Nimes in recent seasons, winning each of the duo’s last four league meetings. When these two sides come together, the goals usually follow. Four of the last five encounters between Marseille and Nimes have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals.
We’re expecting the goals to flow once again this weekend, as five of Marseille’s last six matches have seen both teams score and four of those games have produced over 2.5 goals. The visitors have also been involved in some high scoring games of late. Four of Nimes’ last six outings have produced over 2.5 goals, with the visitors conceding 3 or more goals in three of those games.
We’re predicting a win for the hosts Marseille on Saturday as their guests have lost five of their last six in Ligue 1. We’re also counting on over 2.5 goals to be scored in the process as history and recent performance suggest that at least 3-goals will be scored in this game. As for a final scoreline, we’re backing this game to end 3-1 as Marseille have struggled to keep clean sheets lately and their guest shave conceded a minimum of 3-goals in three of their last six outings in Ligue 1.
