Marseille vs Nantes Match Preview
Marseille beat Lille (1-2) with a second-half comeback last week and host Nantes for their Matchday 26 clash on Saturday looking to build on a three-match winning streak in Ligue 1, which was only interrupted with a disappointing Coupe de France exit in the hands of Lyon (1-0) earlier last week.
Phocaeans beat St Etienne (0-2) and Toulouse (1-0) with two rock-solid defensively displays beforehand and they’ll now want to build on the performances, looking to keep hold of an 11-point gap behind them. They’ve been rock-solid in front of the home fans this term and it’s hard to expect anything else at this point.
Nantes have, on the other hand, struggled to turn clashes their way and they come into the match with a six-match winless streak behind them, including draws against struggling Dijon (3-3) and Metz (0-0) over the past two weeks. They struggled against the big guns and this has kept them well behind in a top 4 chase.
Canaries have been scoring goals quite regularly, though, and the goalless draw seen last week was only the second time they failed to find the net in nine outings across competitions. However, they will need more to cause an upset at Orange Velodrome and we don’t see them up to the task at this point.
We will thus stick with Marseille to secure the points and going for a Home win at 3/4 with William Hill feels like a generous banker bet here, despite a tough nut Nantes have shown off to be on many occasions this term.
We expect a more exciting contest between the sides this time around despite seeing a goalless draw back in August. We’ve seen them score ten goals in five away games since mid-December and we’re now also going for a Yes on Both teams to score, which comes at 11/10 with bet365.
