Marseille – Nantes : Preview & Prediction
Punished twice 3-0 by Paris (championship and Coupe de France) in the space of three days, OM relies on this shock of Ligue 1 against Nantes to resume a positive dynamic. It must be said that between the backhand lack of impact against Braga (1-0) in the second knockout round of the Europa League and these two slaps received against the club of the capital, Marseille has suffered three consecutive losses: a first since late 2015 … Aware that his men still have a lot of work to win the second place in the championship – or failing the third – while hoping to go to the Europa League, Rudi Garcia has allowed himself to preserve Thauvin and Luiz Gustavo, his two best players., Facing Paris Sortis early in the second period, the two men will be very expected this Sunday night. Long locked in the fifth row, the Nantes have seen Montpellier pass ahead, while Rennes is the tip of his nose. Less decisive offensively for a few weeks but still able to defend well en bloc, the men of Ranieri intend to prove that they still have resources in the south … Marseille will have to play the game: can it be surprised by a team from Nantes still formidable against?
Marseille has produced nothing offensively in their last three outings, against Braga (1-0 defeat) and Paris, twice (for 3-0 defeats).
Three of the five games played this season by the Nantais in a team in the top 10 saw less than three goals.
The Olympians had imposed themselves only after regulation time (0-1) on the side of the Beaujoire a few months ago.
Payet is still uncertain for this meeting. Absent for obscure reasons against Paris in the week, the French international may not be 100% if however Rudi Garcia decides to align.
is in limbo offensively when Thauvin does not work miracles. While we still do not know if Payet – absent against Paris on Wednesday – will be able to play, we can imagine these Nantais always very supportive and well organized to hold in respect the Olympian club. This shock will give birth to a chopped match, at the end of which the nets will tremble less than three times.
