Olympique Marseille – Bordeaux, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MARSEILLE - BORDEAUX
Marseille continues to win, and in the last round we saw impressive success over Angers 2-0 as a guest, showing not only maturity, but also the ability to win games against strong rivals like Angers, who are pretty solid right now. This makes 5 consecutive wins for Olympique in Ligue 1 and they are already firmly in the second place. Today they are coming up against a team that started third in the league before the round.
Bordeaux is also in very good shape. The style of play of Bordeaux is different from that of Marseille. This team relies mainly on playing with the ball in their half and mainly attacks in from the middle. There are some weaknesses on the flanks of Bordeaux. We can expect long range strikes in this match from them, which is one of their specialties, as well as goals from set pieces.
Expert view : Bordeaux are performing beyond expectations this season. Their place in the standings can be deceptive, however, because with a few bad results, Bordeaux can fall well down the table, as Marseille climbed after those 5 straight wins. As nice as the guests are, Marseille will play here in front of her fans, and OM have a much bigger class than their opponent. We think that Marseille will again leave everything for the second half and will have to score then. Forecast – Marseille to score in the 2nd half at 1.50.
