Olympique Marseille vs Girondins Bordeaux / Ligue 1 – This is postponed match of the 18th round of French championship where both teams are positioned around mid-table. Marseille stands better for two places and has three points more than Bordeaux but they played one match more. Marseille is in pretty weak shape as it lost two previous matches, just like Bordeaux, which lost in the semi-finals of the League Cup after losing in the league too. Marseille won Bordeaux 1-0 at home last season.
Olympique Marseille vs Girondins Bordeaux begins 05.02.2019 at 19:00 CET
This is a weak season for Marseille and there are no indications that they could play better. They managed to win Caen 1-0 away recently but that was the only triumph in eight previous rounds. Besides, they were eliminated from both French Cups and the Europa League. Marseille lost two previous matches by 2-1; Lille firstly defeated them at the Velodrome when they received goals in stoppage time of the first and second half. Thauvin was sent off in the same match and he didn’t take part in defeat by Reims. He is not going to play against Bordeaux too, just like Strootman.
Probable lineups Olympique Marseille: Mandanda – Sarr, Rolando, Luiz Gustavo, Kamara – Lopez, Sanson – Radonjic, Ocampos, Germain – N'Jie
Bordeaux also plays weakly recently and wins with ever more difficulty. They lost two previous matches to the same opponent. They played both times in Strasbourg; they firstly lost in the Ligue 1 after they received goal in the third minute of stoppage time, while the second away match with Strasbourg was played in the League Cup. Bordeaux took a lead but then received three goals and lost by 3-2. Manager Bedouet had made significant changes in the team for those two matches and now he will make some more. Perhaps he get chance to Adli who joined the team this summer.
Probable lineups Girondins Bordeaux: Costil – Palencia, Kounde, Jovanovic, Poundje – Basic, Otavio, Lerager – Adli, Cornelius, Kamano
Olympique Marseille vs Girondins Bordeaux PICK
Marseille is under bigger pressure and the motive is strong enough to tip the scale in their favour. They didn’t win in front of their fans for a long time and we believe that will play well and win Bordeaux, which doesn’t shine in general and plays badly outside its stadium.
Pick: Olympique Marseille wins
Odds: 2.15 at bethard (down to 2.05 can be played)
