Caen vs Marseille: On the only match this Friday in France, and the one that will open up this Ligue 1’s 21st round of matches.
The local side Caen and the visiting side Marseille face off in Caen, at the Michel D’Ornano stadium, on a match between two teams that have already met once this season, with that encounter finishing with a 4-0 win for Marseille, at home.
The home side is in 10th place of the competition, with 27 points conquered, while the visiting side is in 3rd place with 44 points.
The home team is making a positive campaign so far, being exactly at the middle of the league table and having a somewhat comfortable advantage to their more direct chasers.
Namely the teams on the relegation zone, since they have, going into this 22nd round, an advantage of 6 points.
The team has the worst attacking record of the competition (with only 14 goals scored), but they are also very consistent on defence, being one of the best ones in that aspect.
In terms of results, they are coming off a period of some alternation, with 2 wins and 2 losses on their last 4 matches.
As for the side managed by Rudi Garcia, they are in excellent form, the best they have been since some years ago.
Fighting to qualify for the Champions League alongside Lyon and Monaco and having one of the best attacks of the competition, also coming off an excellent streak of results, with 4 straight wins and only having conceded 1 goal during that period.
Caen vs Marseille – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Considering Caen’s consistency at home and their record in that condition.
I believe that we will have a match within what the others have been (only 2 out of 11 matches finished with Over 2.5 Goals in Caen, with the average of goals scored there being less than 2 per match).
This way, this shouldn’t be a very exciting match in terms of goals.
