Olympique Marseille welcomes Caen
Olympique Marseille welcomes Caen in a match from the 9th round of the French Ligue 1. Here are our vip soccer predictions today for the game at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.
Olympique Marseille are 6th in the current standings of the Ligue 1 with 13 points won so far and a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats. In their last five games Rudi Garcia’s team won three times – against Monaco, Guingamp and Strasbourg, but also suffered two defeats against Olympique Lyonnais and Lille.
In the previous round Marseille suffered a heavy 0-3 defeat during the visit to Rudi Garcia’s ex-club – Lille. The home team scored two penalties, with Pepe and Bamba being merciless from the spot, while Jonathan Bamba added one more goal for Lille in the last minutes of the game. Surely it was not a match to remember for Marseille.
Last season Olympique Marseille missed out on a participation in the Champions League. Now their goal is to finish in the Top 3 and to return to Europe’s top competition, but they need to more consistent if they want this to happen.
Caen are 12th in Ligue 1’s standings with 10 points won and a record of 2 wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats. Unlike Marseille, in the previous round Caen enjoyed a win. They managed to beat Amiens at home, thanks to a goal from a penalty kick, scored by Ninga just six minutes before the halftime break.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Ligue 1 game between Olympique Marseille and Caen at the Stade Velodrome. These two teams had very different emotions in their last games, but we consider Marseille to be a big favourite here. They have to bounce back from their defeat against Lille and we think that they are going to do it.
