Bordeaux-Olympique Marseille, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BORDEAUX - MARSEILLE
Bordeaux is in the middle of the table and generally plays the same way lately. They are strictly looking to “dismantle” the opponent attacks, and so they have got many draws, but victories are missing. Still, their position is far from 18th, so this season is actually over and they are preparing for the next one.
For Marseille, the fight is much more important. The last fail against Amiens after Olympics led 2-0 and came to 2-2 at the end of the match at home, was heavily accepted, because the difference with Lyon is already 8 points and will hardly be melted with a view to that only 8 rounds remain. In this situation, Marseille has nothing else to fight than to finish fourth. We will hardly see the same ambition and motivation from OM in this game, as in the recent games.
We think that because of Bordeaux’s style of play and the fact that Marseille has already failed enough, we will not see such a spectacular match between the two teams and the French Ligue 1 round will start with a few goals and a more tactical scuffle. Totals 9 of the last 11 Bordeaux games have ended with under 2.5 goals, even in most of them there were with less than 2 goals. Our forecast here is Under 2.5 goals at 1.70.
- In eight consecutive games, Bordeaux and Marseille have scored less than 3 goals between themselves
- 4 of the last 6 games for Marseille are under 3 goals
