Marseille vs Lille Prediction & Betting tips
Marseille get a Nordic visit from Lille and already faced St. Etienne this week. In the catch-up game from the first round of the game, a surprising 0-2 had to be booked in what was actually an even match. After two victories at the beginning, this was the first season failure for OM.
For their part, the guests are still unbeaten and have not conceded a goal for 180 minutes. For the match at the Stade Velodrome between Marseille and Lille, the tip aims to get the home side back on the road to success with a win (DNB).
The kickers from the Mediterranean celebrated a three-point at PSG on the penultimate matchday and have overcome a trauma. After all, the runner-up had to wait for almost nine years until it was enough to win the “Clasique” again. But the success had some personal effects: striker Benedetto and defender Amavi were sent off.
At least the Argentine attacker and best scorer of the previous year is available again. Currently, however, he was replaced by Florian Thauvin when asked about the most dangerous player in the team from coach Andre Villas-Boas. The striker scored on the first two match days and is in top shape again after a long break from injury.
On top of that, Bouna Sarr, a regular in the defense, returns to the starting eleven of the runner-up after completing quarantine.
In view of the recently somewhat weakening offensive with only one goal in two games and the very good defense of the guests, the odds for less than 2.5 goals are additionally equipped with value in the encounter between Marseille and Lille.
The mastiffs have so far appeared as efficient minimalists. With three goals after as many rounds of play, a proud result of seven points was achieved. With the exception of the opening game against the formidable kickers from Rennes, which ended in a draw, the schedule was quite easy.
So the two victories against Metz took place, completely pointless, as well as the still winless footballers from Reims. The offensive weakness was quite to be expected after Osimhen, the best scorer, was given in the direction of Naples.
The talented Canadian Jonathan David was signed as a replacement. The newcomer from Gent is still waiting for his first goal in the LOSC jersey. This also applies to his storm colleague Burak Yilmaz.
The striker previously hunted for goals at Galatasaray and admittedly with a double-digit yield in the last two seasons. But at the age of 35, of course, the Turk has slowly reached his zenith.
At least the defense is safe, as mentioned: They only conceded one goal in the first match against the Bretons from Rennes. The strength of the Lille back team was already evident last season.
At that time, at the time of the early end of the season, the defense had the fourth fewest goals. However, this great record was mainly achieved at home and twice as many goals conceded away.
