Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Marseille win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 8/11 @ Bet 365
With their sights set on securing a Champions League return this season, Marseille will welcome Brest to the Orange Vélodrome on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another dominant display and picking up a 2-0 win away Toulouse last weekend, Marseille appear to have fully bounced back from their back-to-back defeats last month. Now sat second in the standings and looking to bring Champions League football back to the Orange Vélodrome this year, André Villas-Boas’ men have won their last three straight matches on the bounce. The one-time Chelsea boss will undoubtedly be most impressed by his side’s continued success on home soil. Snatching a 2-1 win over Lyon in their last appearance at the Orange Vélodrome, Marseille have won their last three straight matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, while Brest may have enjoyed a very eye-catching run in October, the Ligue 1 returners have since started to show some signs of a struggle. Still holding just a four-point buffer over the drop zone, Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men have failed to win any of their last three matches on the bounce and they have continued to show some signs of a struggle away from the Stade Francis-Le Blé. Including suffering a 4-1 hammering away at Monaco back in September, Brest have recorded just a single victory in any of their six Ligue 1 matches on the road this season. Given Marseille’s recent resurge, we’re backing a comfortable home victory on Friday night.
Bet: Marseille 8/11 to beat Brest and over 1.5 goals in Friday’s Ligue 1 contest @ Bet 365
