Strasbourg vs Marseille Prediction & Betting tips
The 9th round of the French Ligue Une will be finished with the match Racing Strasbourg against Olympique Marseille. Racing Strasbourg made a comeback to the Ligue 1 after nine years and is keen to keep the class. So far, however, the Alsatians have not yet entered the aisles and are only five points behind the last place. The sky blues from Marseille, on the other hand, are far better. With 16 points, OM takes third place behind Paris Saint Germain and AS Monaco. In order to avoid a gap in these two, the match should be won at the Strasbourg descent. The kick-off will take place on Sunday evening at 8 pm.
Nine long years the champion from the year 1979 in France’s Amateurligen and the second league around. When the athletic descent into the Ligue 2 had to be taken in 2008, the downhill race only began so correctly. 2010 followed the sporty descent into the third league and in the year the club even the license was withdrawn and had to restart in the fifth league. Since then, however, the rocket style has gone up again. In the third league Strasbourg came again within only two years. After three years of stay in this, 2016 the climb to the Ligue 2 and in the following year the durchmarsch back into the first class.
In this, however, the Alsatians again have serious problems to keep pace. After eight game days it was only five points and the penultimate place for Strasbourg. The only win on Matchday 2 at 3-0 in their own stadium against the currently equal OSC Lille. A home strength can not be talked to yet, the opponents in the other two home games have not been overpowering, but lost this nevertheless. Neither against Amiens SC (0: 1) nor against FC Nantes (1: 2) did it reach a point. In the last game the fifth defeat in the series could be averted just as Martin Terrier in the second minute of the stoppage time to the 1: 1 final score.
Olympique Marseille strengthened in the summer in some positions. Steve Amanda and Lucas Ocampos, who are the most important players in the season, are the players of Steve Mandanda, Florian Thauvin, Adil Rami, Luiz Gustavo, Valere Germain and Clinton N’Jie counting. Despite the large transfer offensive, it is questionable whether it can be realistic enough to reach more than third place last season. Paris Saint Germain, in particular, has unlimited resources and turned the football world upside down with the extravagant transfers. Last year, AS Monaco is certainly still within reach.
In the current season, OM already takes the third place, which is the best. With 16 points Marseille are six points behind table leader Paris Saint Germain and three points behind the AS Monaco. After two wins and a draw to the start, two bitter defeats followed. On the one hand a high defeat against the competitor AS Monaco, on the other hand a disappointing home defeat against Stade Rennes. However, the team of coach Rudi Garcia found their way back into the game, winning the last three Ligas against Amiens SC, FC Toulouse and OGC Nice. In the Europa League the home game against Konyaspor was won 1: 0, while the away game at Red Bull Salzburg with the same result was lost.
