Reason for Marseille vs Strasbourg Predictions
Marseille maintained their push for a top-five finish in Ligue 1 on the weekend with a 3-1 win away from home at Reims, which followed a previous 3-2 victory at home against Lorient, with these wins keeping Marseille firmly in the frame for Europa League action next season. Indeed, five wins out of their last seven matches for Marseille have seen the hosts produce a positive response to their earlier slump in the season after former manager Andre Villas-Boas was shown the door. The hosts won just one of 11 matches during that period of unrest. However, four of these recent five wins have been achieved on home turf at their Orange Velodrome as they’ve compiled victories over Rennes, Brest, Dijon, and Lorient, while Marseille’s overall home record reads nine wins, four draws, and four defeats to date. Pape Gueye is a great player, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Florian Thauvin 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.
Strasbourg dropped down to 15th place in Ligue 1 following their recent 2-1 defeat at home to Nantes, which extended the visitors’ winless run to three matches while also managing to win just one of their last six matches overall. That solitary success in recent weeks was achieved with a 3-2 win away at Bordeaux, but four defeats within this period have resulted in Strasbourg slipping down nearer to the relegation zone. Recent losses to Rennes, Lens, PSG, and Nantes do not bode well for this upcoming trip to face Marseille. Although Strasbourg holds a six-point cushion over third from bottom Nantes, another defeat on Friday night could land them in trouble. Results away from home continue to be mixed for Strasbourg, who possess an overall away record which stands at six wins, three draws, and eight defeats but have managed to keep just four clean sheets. Ajorque is a great striker, he scored thirteen goals, and more goals are expected from this guy. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Marseille is the favorite in this match, and they have no right to make a mistake. The hosts should pick up all three points.
Prediction for this match is the goal of both teams. They are capable of scoring against any side, and we don’t think nets will remain still.
