Marseille – Nice : Preview & Prediction
Marseille seems to have digested the two difficult months of crisis from early December to early February … Indeed the club has got back on track and shows a more attractive face for a month, which corresponds on the arrival of Mario Balotelli. Rudi Garcia’s teammates scored 13 points out of 15 in the last 5 days and have therefore recorded 3 victories at the Vélodrome ahead of Bordeaux (1-0), Amiens (2-0) and St Etienne (2-0), 1 victory in Dijon (2-1) and 1 draw in Rennes (1-1). The Italian international, still scorer last weekend, brings to 4 his total goals in 6 games in the Olympian jersey. No doubt the latter will be very motivated against his former partners. Nice, 8th, could return to 1 length of the OM in case of victory this Sunday night. But the results and benefits of Eaglets are rather disappointing since February 1st. The GYM have won their two home games against Lyon (1-0) and Strasbourg (1-0) but lost in their last 3 trips to Lille (4-0), Angers (3-0) and in Amiens (1-0). Little inspired by the Allianz Riviera, the OGCN could suffer another disappointment at the Vélodrome.
Marseille are on a good run of 5 games without defeat: 4 wins and 1 draw.
Nice has suffered 3 losses in the last 5 days of Ligue 1.
