Bordeaux vs Marseille – Ligue 1: A classic duel of French football will take place in Bordeaux this Sunday
With the home team hosting the historical Marseille…
Bordeaux currently occupies the 9th place in Ligue 1 with 16 points, 7 behind the teams in top 5 where they would surely like to be. Up until this point, they’ve won 4 times, while drawing and losing 4 times as well.
On their last 5 matches, they really have a terrible record, otherwise they would be at the top. They only have 1 point out of 15 possible on their last 5 matches, being clearly on their worst moment of form of the season so far.
However, this international break might have some positive effects on the team. In terms of goals, they already scored 16 times while conceding 18 goals, so the record matches their position on the league table.
In terms of players, the highlight goes to Brazilian Malcolm that was an excellent signing and has already scored 5 goals in the league, he who shouldn’t be too much more time with this team.
As for Marseille, they are looking to return to the past and make a good campaign and honestly, they have everything they need to do it, being able to finish, at least, on the top 4.
The team has a lot of quality at its disposal with the experienced Mandanda, Rami, Luiz Gustavo, Payet and Mitroglou, competent players like Germain and Sakai and still very strong youngsters like Ocampos, Thauvin, N’Jie, Sanson and Max Lopez.
With that, there are no excuses for them not to have a good campaign and the truth is that so far it is working out well, with the team sitting in 4th place, 1 point behind Lyon,
and already some advantage over the 6th place, being able to get extremely close to Monaco in case they win.
The team has 7 victories, 3 draws and 2 losses in total already, having the 4th best attack with 26 goals scored. But on defence, they have struggled a bit and have already conceded 17 times.
Bordeaux vs Marseille– Betting Tip and Prediction:
In this match, considering that Marseille got 11 out of the last 15 possible and the fact that Bordeaux is in a terrible moment of form like I said above, I could very well bet on the visiting team with excellent odds.
But I can’t take risks on a derby like this that Marseille haven’t won for ages.
This time, looking at both teams’ goal records, it seems that the best bet will have to be the over 2.5 goals.
Both teams score very well and even defensively, they are well above the average of 1 goal conceded per match, which means that the 1.60 odds suit this match very well and that seems to be the best bet.
Therefore, my bet is over 2.5 goals, with the X2 also being worth a shot.
