Caen – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
We no longer stop OM! Beaten once in their last sixteen league games (11v-4-1d), the Olympians claim more than ever to a direct qualification in the Champions League. Now well balanced defensively, Marseille relies on Luiz Gustavo to orchestrate his game, while enjoying the success of the duo Thauvin / Payet ahead. Authoritarian during his last trip to Rennes (0-3), OM dreams of reproducing the performance on the field of SM Caen. An opponent well placed in ninth place, who wants to surf on his success (0-2) brought back from Bordeaux early in the week. Sometimes tender behind but rather well offensively armed (Rodelin, Santini, Féret …), the Normans, punished 5-0 at the Vélodrome, will not let them walk in front of their audience. So, Marseille will maintain pressure on Lyon and Monaco by refueling Ornano?
OM has just chained three championship successes in the league. The Olympians have mostly won 11 of their last 16 L1 games, for four draws and one defeat (in Lyon).
The MSC is relatively inconsistent: the Normans have dropped in two of their last three meetings at home (Lyon, Lille), for a draw (Guingamp).
Marseille had humiliated the Normans at the Vélodrome in the first leg (5-0).
Caen lost 1-5 on his home ground against the Olympians last year.
The Normans have been dominated in their last three games played in Ornano against a club among the top six in the championship.
The Marseillais seem to rise in power over the season. Consistent defensively and more dangerous than ever before thanks to a particular Thauvin XXL, the Olympians should logically come to grips with a SMC they had crammed to go (5-0). Logical victory of OM.
