Caen vs Marseille Prediction & Betting tips
Olympique Marseille is currently fighting for a direct entry into the Champions League and has quite good cards for this. However, the team of coach Rudi Garcia has to compete indirectly with Monaco and Lyon, who are currently positioning themselves in front of or behind Marseille. In order not to lose the connection to Lyon, Marseille should score three times at Stade Malherbe Caen next Friday (19.01.) At Stade Malherbe Caen for the fourth time in a row. Since Caen – regardless of the lucky success in the last game – currently has a significant negative run, this should be quite possible for a formative Olympique. Accordingly, we recommend three-way bets on the guest team, which are offered by the bookmakers at reasonable odds to 1.91.
SM Caen is currently in tenth place with an 8-3-10 record, a goal difference of 14:22 and 27 points. This is, at least for the time being, a significant improvement on last season, with Caen barely escaping relegation with 17th place.
However, after a good start to the season, the form of Stade Malherbe has clearly turned negative in the course of the season. So lost from the last five games against Toulouse FC (19., 0: 2), Paris Saint Germain (1, 1: 3) and the OSC Lille (17, 0: 1). In the meantime, EA Guingamp (7) could be wrestled a goalless draw before on the final day against Girondins Bordeaux (13, 2: 0) could be achieved a happy victory. It should be noted, however, that Bordeaux is currently one of the two form-weakest teams in the league and the victory should therefore not be overrated.
Among the strengths of the team of coach Patrice Garande is definitely the defensive, which could well match those of the top teams. In contrast, the offensive is bad underground and is one of the two worst in the highest French league.
Olympique Marseille are currently in third place with a 13-5-3 record, a goal difference of 43:22 and 44 points. Thus, Marseille seamlessly connects to the good performance from the last season and also holds all the chances of re-participation in one of the two coveted international competitions open. The goal this time is certainly the direct qualification for the Champions League, which in the end, the second place is required. However, Marseille have to resist AS Monaco and Olympique Lyon, who have already passed the 40-point mark.
Technically, the team of coach Rudi Garcia is currently doing very well. Only a defeat against Lyon (2nd, 0: 2) clouds the picture, otherwise of four wins against AS Saint Etienne (14th, 3: 0), the ES Troyes AC (18th, 3: 1), Stade Rennes (9th, 3: 0) and Racing Strasbourg (12th, 2: 0) is determined.
As can be seen from the latest results, Marseille have one of the best offensives in Ligue 1. Only Paris, Monaco and Lyon have better statistics here. The same applies to the defensive, which may not be the best, but certainly well above the league average.
