Bordeaux – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
It is an OM with two faces that is proposed to us this season. Mocked for their inability to defend well at the beginning of the exercise, the Olympians begin to silence the critics, reassured by a hinge Rami – Abdennour impeccable face Caen (5-0 victory) just before the international truce. Convincing offensively, the Olympians, fourth at one point in the OL, have more than ever the podium in sight. Optimism is much more measured in the Girondin ranks. It must be said that unlike a Marseille team with many offensive options, Jocelyn Gourvennec is dependent on the performance of the Brazilian Malcom. Less successful in recent weeks, the one who already has five goals and four assists in twelve appearances will lead the way against the OM. Unrecognizable for five days (4d-1n), will the Girondins benefit from this shock to find the light? This match will be rich of lessons for the continuation of the season!
Bordeaux lost in 4 of the last 5 days of Ligue 1.
The Olympians have won three of their last four league games played away from the Velodrome for a draw.
Marseille had given a lesson to the SMC just before the international break: 5-0.
The Marseillais have scored no less than 15 goals in their last five league games.
Bordeaux have not won any of their seven games in front of their home crowd against a top-6 club since Jocelyn Gourvennec is on his bench (3d-4n).
Bordeaux Marseille – Our prediction
Extremely dependent on the performances of Malcom, Bordeaux has been trampling for a few days. Without being impressive, Marseille has found a good pace offensively, and begins to produce some games on which to rely in the defensive sector. We have the feeling that OM is intrinsically superior to Bordeaux. The odds of an Olympian victory are clearly too high not to be interested!
