Marseille – Bordeaux, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MARSEILLE - BORDEAUX
Because of the many postponed matches in France due to protests in December, as well as other reasons, it has now become quite a chaos with constant play of postponed matches during the week. Marseille must recover against Bordeaux. Not only that their performance is not going well and they are in bad shape, but they have a lot of injuries. In addition, in the last home game against Lille, the fans had enough and the game had to be interrupted. The fans literally showed that they would not support the team, because of their terrible performance.
Bordeaux is in the middle of the table and has a very small chance to break into the top 6, because they have to fight with stronger teams. Their stats are 7-7-7 respectively wins, draws and losses. Bordeaux ‘s problem is the attack and, in particular, the insertion of goals in visits, where it is not easy to score goals. That is why they have only 2 wins as a guest over very weak rivals.
Marseille have trouble in attacking, because important players are missing. At the same time, Bordeaux can not score many goals, as their approach away from home is very defensive. Particularly against the big rivals, they did go out not to lose and they did 1-1 with Lyon. In 5 of the last 6 home games in Marseille there were under 3 goals. In 6 of the last 7 away games Bordeaux had under 3 goals. In the last 7 games between Marseille and Bordeaux there were under 3 goals, so we can hardly expect much spectacle today. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals at 1.75
