Betfred betting tips

First team to score: Marseille

Defensively, Nice hasn’t had a strong showing at home and with Marseille looking to stem their position on the table as they hope for a top-four finish, the visitors will be the team to beat. A shaky defense against an inspired visiting team means Marseille have a chance to go ahead at half time.  It is why we are backing the visitors to score first.

Both teams to score: Yes

In previous encounters between the two teams, Marseille have won 7 out of 10, losing twice and drawing once. While we feel the bookies are right to favourite Marseille in this fixture, a resurgent Nice that hasn’t lost the last three games will be a real test for the new manager. The hosts have scored in all their last 8 league games. Thus, betting on goals looks good on the books. The hosts have a poor home record against the visitors. And having conceded more goals at home (25) than they have scored (16), we are backing both teams to score given their resurgent forms.

Correct Score: 1-2

Marseille is the favourites coming into this fixture. OGC Nice stop scorer, Armine Gouiri has scored one goal in three out of the last four league games. He will be looking to score again again in this fixture, which is why we feel Nice will find the net at least once. Moreover, after failing to keeo a clean sheet in the six league games, conceding two goals in three of the fixtures, Nice have a defensive nightmare as they prepare to face Marseille that has been re-energized under a new manager. Also factoring in an impressive H2H against the hosts, away win looks good on the books.

Nice vs. Marseille: Preview:  Will Marseille Keep Their Start under Their New Manager Away from Home?

By hiring Jorge Sampaoli, Marseille want to keep their top-four hopes alive. However, facing Nice on the road in the second game under the Argentinean could prove difficult. Despite winning the first game under Sampaoli by a two-goal margin, the former Atletico Mineiro manager is yet to face difficult opponents in League One. Nice has scored 16 goals at home and conceded 25 goals at home going into the Saturday match.

The visiting team has scored 15 goals on the road and conceded 15. It means Marseille has a better record at home against their Saturday opponents. A 10-goal difference to the advantage of the visitors means Nice must improve defensively to guard their resurgent form. And having lost 13 matches in 29 league games so far against Marseille’s 8 losses, Nice looks vulnerable going into this fixture. Eight of those losses have been at home. Marseille only lost four matches on the road, drawing five and winning five times.
