Lille vs Marseille: Preview & Prediction
This Friday, the Pierre Mauroy Stadium of Villeneuve d’Ascq should show complete for the reception of Olympique de Marseille, as OM usually moves the crowds.
Moreover, it is a match that promises to be exciting, because Franck Passi will find his former club. Indeed, the technician of Lille had been dismissed from Marseilles a few months ago.
Franck Passi will therefore have his heart to take revenge on Marseille and on the leaders in place. Lille also needs points in its race to maintain since the Mastiffs are at the moment punished in their enclosure.
If Lille is better for a few weeks with this qualification in the Coupe de France, it is thanks to good results outside. Eder’s partners (5 goals) have won in Nancy (2-1) or in Caen (1-0) and they recently hung a good draw of their trip to Toulouse (1-1).
On the other hand, Lille is having difficulty taking the game to his own account like home failures in front of FC Lorient (0-1), SCO Angers (1-2) and Bordeaux (2-3). It was 5 matches that the Lille no longer won in their precincts since the last victory is December 10, 2016 in front of Montpellier (2-1).
It is therefore perhaps a great opportunity for the Marseillais, especially that the OM remains on beautiful victories in the North of France, in recent years.
OM could also surfer their dynamics since the protégés of Rudy Garcia, successor of Franck Passi in Marseille, have just won in Lorient (4-1) and in front of SCO Angers (3-0), two formations that Struggle for their maintenance.
Lille vs Marseille: Direct Matches
If Marseille has just taken 3 points at the Moustoir, it is on the outside that the Marseillais have been in difficulties in recent weeks with failures in 2017, Lyon (1-3), Metz (0-1) and In Nantes (2-3).
The situation will not be obvious for Marseille, especially that two executives will be absent, Patrice Evra and William Vainqueur. The good news for Rudy Garcia is the possible establishment of his striker, Bafé Gomis, back from injury.
It would therefore be more prudent to bet on a parity score, which would already be a good operation for OM.
