Marseille vs Bordeaux Match Preview
Andre Villas-Boas is rebuilding his reputation very effectively with Marseille and his team are backed to make it six of the best at home to another in-form side, Bordeaux.
AVB was tipped as the ‘next Mourinho’ in 2011 when he followed the path of his compatriot from Porto to Chelsea, but things did not work out for him either there or at Tottenham. He has subsequently had spells with Zenit St Petersburg, Shanghai SIPG and as a rally driver!
But it could be that Marseille offers the 42-year-old the route back to the big time because he has got L’OM up to second in the Ligue 1 table – five points behind Paris Saint-Germain who have a game in hand – and on a terrific run of form as they seek a sixth consecutive victory.
Mind you, Bordeaux have also improved significantly this term. Paulo Sousa’s reign started badly with the Girondins in the spring, but they kept faith with him and that has been rewarded as the club have risen to third in the table having collected 14 points from the last 18 available.
Most recently, there was a resounding 6-0 triumph against Nimes in midweek which featured a hat-trick from Josh Maja, the young striker who was signed from Sunderland in January.
However, despite Bordeaux’s fine spell, they have not won in their last 11 league visits to Marseille and with their hosts in such terrific fettle themselves, this looks like being another three points for Villas-Boas’ men.
