Olympique de Marseille is hosting Bordeaux at Orange Velodrome in round 7 in the French Ligue 1.
Marseille has started the season with 2 wins, but they haven’t won any of their last 4 games. Even though Marseille has only 2 losses so far this season, they are not playing in good form. In their latest Ligue 1 match against Lyon on the road, Marseille has had only 33% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 71% of accurate passes. Marseille got ahead in the 16th minute, but in the 19th minute, Marseille has conceded a red card. Marseille conceded a goal in the 28th minute from the penalty spot, but they were defending well with a player less on the field. The final score of this match was 1-1. With 9 points, 7 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals, Marseille is in 10th place in the Ligue 1 standings. Caleta Car and Thauvin have both scored 2 goals for Marseille so far this season. Thauvin also added 3 assists, while Sanson added 2 assists. There are no injuries in Marseille at the moment, but Payet is suspended because of the red card. Marseille will be playing in the Champions League next week, but I’m not sure they can afford to mix the lineup for this match because they will fall behind, and they will have a tough time getting back closer to the top.
Bordeaux has only 1 loss this season, but they also have 3 draws, and 2 wins. Bordeaux is in 9th place with 9 points, 6 scored goals, and only 2 conceded goals. Kalu and Basic have each scored 2 goals for Bordeaux so far this season. There are no injuries or suspensions in Bordeaux at this time. In their last match in Ligue 1 against Dijon at home, Bordeaux has had 50% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Bordeaux was the better team in this game, and they deservedly won 3-0. Defensively, Bordeaux has been one of the best teams in Ligue 1 so far this season, but they haven’t been consistent in the attacking end. The good news for Bordeaux is that they are playing only in Ligue 1, and if they can get their offense in order, Bordeaux will have a good chance at getting back to the top of the Ligue 1. The schedule for Bordeaux will not be easy over the next month, but seeing how well they are playing on the defensive end, Bordeaux can expect some points.
Marseille hasn’t won any of their last 4 games, and they still haven’t won a home game this season. The trends are mixed here, and Marseille has won their last 4 home games against Bordeaux. I have a feeling this match could end in a draw, and I will go with it.
