Reason For Marseille vs Bordeaux Betting Tips

  • Marseille have won each of their last five matches in Ligue 1, scoring twice in all five.
  • Marseille haven’t lost at home since early September. They’ve since gone seven league games without tasting defeat at Stade Vélodrome.
  • Bordeaux haven’t beaten Marseille since 2008, despite having had 13 opportunities to do so.

More of the same for hosts

Sat in 2nd place, five points clear of Sunday’s opponents, who’re in third, Marseille are enjoying a strong campaign. They’ve not really challenged PSG, who’re five points clear at the top, but it’s safe to say that André Villas-Boas’ men are the next-best in France.

Recent form has been strong for Sunday’s hosts, who’ve won each of their last five. What’s more, Les Phocéens have done well at home, where they’ve lost just one out of eight, winning five of the other seven. They’re now unbeaten in seven at home, and had it not been for facing the mighty PSG first time out, they’d be without defeat at Stade Vélodrome this season. Other than the league leaders, no team has gone to Marseille and scored more than once.

Bordeaux look to extend unbeaten run

Marseille are not the only in-form team that will take to the pitch at Stade Vélodrome on Sunday evening, as Bordeaux come into this match having tasted defeat in none of their last six, four of which they’ve won.

Not only do Bordeaux come into this match unbeaten in six, but in terms of results, they’ve been just about as good as anyone in Ligue 1 when playing away from home, claiming just three points less than top travelling point-scorers PSG and losing the joint-fewest games, which is two.

In terms of defence and attack away from home, their efforts have been so-so, scoring 12 and conceding 11, while they average 3.5 shots on target for and 3.63 against.

Marseille better at getting the job done

In the betting, a home win is hard to oppose. Specifically, ‘Marseille to Win & Under 3.5 Goals’ catches the eye. Bordeaux aren’t mugs, but they’ve not made light work of getting the job done of late, winning none of their last three on the road. They don’t concede an abundance of goals, nor has there been an abundance of goals in their recent away matches, but they seemingly lack Marseille’s knack of coming out on top. Marseille have won each of their last four at home, all of which have seen less than four goals go in, while they are the team (out of these two) that are better at restricting the opposition and bettering them in terms of shots and shots on target. All in all, a low-scoring win for the hosts stands out as the best option.
