Friday nights Ligue 1 action comes from the Stade Velodrome as Marseille host Nantes. This is battle of top teams in France as both are in the top four in the league, Marseille are clear at the top of the League table but have struggled of late losing three of the last five in all competitions. At home though Marseille are money , winning their last six at home. With Gignac netting eleven goals in fourteen games this season it is obvious where the goal threat is coming from on this Marseille team. Ayew and Payet play a nice compliment role to Gignac and will be key players for Marseille as they look to continue their strong home form.
Nantes are in fourth place in the league but are a very different team to Marseille. Nantes have only scored fourteen goals this season but still are fourth in the table. Obviously with that few goals scored but still sitting so high in the table Nantes have a pretty mean defence that have only conceded nine goals this season. Nantes have only lost two games all season and only one away from home three wins in a row on the road means they come into this game full of confidence.
I find it hard to go against Marseille here even with Nantes strong defence and good away record. I just think Gignac, Ayew and the res of the Marseill e midfield will find a way to break down Nantes. I am going to take Marseille to win here to get the weekend off to a good start.
