Marseille vs Angers Match Preview
Marseille host Angers for their Matchday 30 clash as they return to Ligue 1 on Saturday afternoon in search of important points to build on their top 4 spot and return to the winning ways after PSG (3-1) ended their unbeaten streak in an exciting contest at Parc des Princes.
Les Phoceens have been rock-solid at home ground and based their success on such displays here, having beaten Bordeaux (1-0), Amiens (2-0), Saint-Etienne (2-0), and Nice (1-0) and kept clean sheets on all of the occasions. Rudi Garcia will now want his men to build on such performances with chasers keeping up.
Angers now sit 15 points clear of the relegation zone and while they’ve failed to keep up with the top of the table too, we’ve seen them hold off Monaco (2-2), Montpellier (2-2), and Amiens (0-0) in rather exciting occasions in three outings since early March.
Les Scoistes have struggled to consistently score goals on the road and this will be more worrying ahead of the tough trip to Orange Velodrome, where they have snatched two wins in four clashes. They have proven themselves a tough nut to crack and kept Marseille to a 1-1 draw at home ground earlier this term, which promises another solid challenge.
We will still back Marseille to secure the points with confidence and we feel sticking with a Home win at 1/2 with bet365 feels like a banker bet at this point. We’ve seen them rock-solid here and we feel we will now see more of the same on the day.
Les Phoceens have based success on defensive displays more than anything else and we’ll now back them to keep it up, as we stick with them to keep a clean sheet at 10/11 with William Hill – which indeed looks like a great value as well.
