Reason for Bordeaux vs Marseille Predictions
Olympique Marseille has a good chance of rising to second place in Ligue 1, and this will be their target when they travel to Bordeaux on Match Day 20. Bordeaux goes to this game placed 17th with 17 points while Marseille has 33 points, in third place. It hasn’t been an easy ride for Bordeaux this season, and even in their last five matches, they have just one comfortable win, a 10-0 victory over Les Jumeaux M’Zouasia in the French Cup. They go to this game on the back of two straight losses, 3-0 to Brest in their most recent match and 3-2 to Lille earlier. There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the sole fitness concern for the Bordeaux boss Vladimir Petković to be concerned with from an otherwise complete set of players. Paul Baysse (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention. Ui-Jo Hwang is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Marseille started the year on a high, beating Chauvigny 3-0 away from home in the French Cup. It was their third clean sheet in five matches, the fourth win in five, and the third time they kept a clean sheet in the last five games. They have also scored two or more in three of the previous five matches, signalling confidence in attack and solidity in defense. In Ligue 1 action, Marseille has one loss only in their last five matches, and in three of the five, they’ve kept clean sheets. Marseille hasn’t tasted defeat in the previous five meetings with Bordeaux, winning two, while three ended in draws. Marseille manager Jorge Sampaoli has to choose a team with limited availability. Konrad de la Fuente (Coronavirus), Oussama Targhalline (Coronavirus), and Valentin Rongier (Foot Injury) can’t be considered. Pape Gueye is a great player, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Matteo Guendouzi is the engine of this team, he goes through the defense of the opponent like a fast train, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his games.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Bordeaux is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Marseille should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
