Marseille – Angers : Preview & Prediction
Olympique de Marseille, 2nd just 8 points behind PSG, the leader, could see its great streak end in front of Angers this weekend. The Marseille club, which is experiencing internal difficulties and disagreements, will be lessened against the SCO. Indeed, Bouna Sarr, Boubacar Kamara and Dimitri Payet, warned during the victory in Rennes (1-0) on January 10, will be suspended against Angers this Saturday. A big blow for André Villas-Boas who lost 3 of his best elements who were in great shape. The Marseille club, victorious at Granville (3-0) in the Coupe de France, is on a series of 4 victories in a row but could see this great momentum stop dead by the Angevins who have not lost since December 14th. Angers, wedged in the soft belly, is at a good distance from European places and a performance at the Vélodrome would be positive for the protégés of Stéphane Moulin. Still racing in the Coupe de France after recent victories in Dieppe (3-1) and Rouen (4-1), Angers remains on 3 good results in Ligue 1 with 2 draws against Monaco (0-0) and Nice (1 -1) and 1 success in Nantes (2-1) at the end of December.
Dimitri Payet, Boubacar Kamara and Bouna Sarr suspended against Angers and Florian Thauvin is still in the infirmary.
Angers is undefeated since 5 games (3 wins and 2 draws), Ligue 1 and Coupe de France included.
The SCO obtained 2 draws (1-1 and 2-2) during its last 2 visits to the Vélodrome.
4 draws during their last 5 direct confrontations.
Angers is 10th just 3 points from European places.
OM, without Payet, Kamara and Sarr, should lose points against a beautiful team from Angers undefeated in their last 2 trips to the Vélodrome.
