Marseille – Nantes : Preview & Prediction
Olympique de Marseille welcomes FC Nantes on Saturday afternoon, on its Orange Vélodrome lawn. On the occasion of this new championship day – the 26th – OM will try to confirm its success acquired in Lille last weekend (1-2), against Nantes who have not won in recent weeks. Authors of a small draw against Metz during their last outing (0-0), the Canaries have indeed no longer known a victory for 6 games, accumulating defeats first before scoring two points against Metz therefore, but also Dijon a week earlier. This time, against an OM to whom everything seems to smile this season, the meeting could however prove to be more complicated, especially since AVB and its men are customary of beautiful perfs at home this season. A match that is therefore expected in favor of the Olympians in the Bouches du Rhône, even if the show should not be enticing. In any case, this is what the context reveals before kick-off.
Only 2 of the last 15 duels between Nantes and OM have exceeded 3 goals.
In the first leg, the meeting ended in a sad 0-0.
Nantes has not won in 6 games. Accumulating 4 defeats in passing.
Marseille has just won its duel at the top on the lawn of Lille (1-2).
OM have won 8 of their last 9 matches at the Vélodrome. Against a draw against Angers (0-0).
None of OM’s last 5 games have exceeded 3 goals. Effective if not spectacular?
This OM is not the most beautiful in history, but it is at least effective and will probably finish second in Ligue 1 this season. Against a Nantes who is not in the form of his life, Marseille should therefore prevail on his lawn, in a meeting which will not a priori exceed three goals.
