Marseille vs Nimes Match Preview
Marseille host Nimes for their Matchday 32 clash on Saturday afternoon looking for a return to the winning ways after three outings, where they saw PSG (3-1) and Bordeaux (2-0) bag the points on the road and only shared the spoils with Angers in a thriller 2-2 draw at this ground along the way.
Les Phoceens have thus only seen a four-match winning streak at Orange Velodrome ended but it’s obvious Rudi Garcia’s men have a lot to prove if they’re to challenge the top 6 – currently sitting eight points behind the 3rd placed Lyon. They’ve based success on tough displays here and we expect a very motivated outfit once again.
Nimes, on the other hand, come into the match just days after hosting Rennes on Tuesday, as they look to build on the 2-0 win over Caen – where two very late goals proved enough to secure all three points and return to the winning ways after four games.
Les Crocodiles have struggled to impress on the road, though, and this will be more worrying as they look to build on their mid-table spot. Indeed, they’ve seen PSG (3-0), Amiens (2-1), and Saint-Etienne (2-1) all bag the points despite tough challenges and we now expect to see more of the same.
We’ll thus back Marseille to secure the important points as well, where going for a Home win at 8/15 with bet365 feels like buying money for old rope at this point. Les Phoceens seemingly have more to play for and we hope to see them showing what they’re worth here.
However, we feel there will be no points without outgunning the rivals in an exciting clash and with that in mind, we’re now also backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/6 with bet365. We’ve seen such occasions on both ends regularly and hope this will prove another such occasion.
