Marseille vs Amiens – Ligue 1 : The final stretch of the season has been ruthless for Olympique Marseille’s roster
That had been making a potentially incredible campaign but that is now walking towards failure.
The team was making a good campaign in Ligue 1 but they’ve slipped up twice on the last 3 rounds and they saw Lyon taking the 3rd place from them and to make matters worse, their rival was defeated by Strasbourg,
but Marseille, that was winning against Guingamp, drew their match and couldn’t regain that 3rd place.
Well, the Europa League’s final came, went, and the loss of the title brought even more responsibility to their performance this Saturday, that will be impacted partially by the absences of Rami and Mandanda
who are suspended, and Payet who is injured, but nothing that impacts their level so much that would leave them fearing the modest
Amiens: In 12th place, Amiens is only playing for pride in this round and trying to return the loss they suffered at home to Marseille on the first half of the season,
but they know that the difference in terms of quality between the two teams is too large and therefore, they should adopt a more defensive posture, looking to snatch or draw or even an unlikely victory, taking advantage of set pieces or counter-attacks.
However, this strategy hasn’t been working out that well over the course of the league and as visitors, Amiens have only scored 10 goals on the 18 matches they’ve played and were defeated 10 times.
Marseille vs Amiens – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Even with some occasional absences, Marseille is a much superior team and should give a last effort here to at least play their part at the Vélodrome Stadium and root for Lyon’s slip-up.
The opponent on this occasion isn’t one of the best. Amiens has a very modest roster, they are making a reasonable to weak campaign and away from home, they have been an easy prey for the top clubs
so the trend suggests that Marseille will completely dominate this match and win easily by 2 or more goals.
