Bookmaker Ratings prediction one –  Away win – 1.91

Bookmaker Ratings prediction two – Total Goals over 2.5 – 1.81

Match Predict – Away win

Jorge Sampaoli must be worried that his team could miss out on Champions League football next season. That’s why we think that Marseille will bounce back in the upcoming match.

Moreover, this season Marseille are undoubtedly the team that plays better away than at home. Of their 65 total points, 36 came away from away fixtures.

Total Goals over 2.5

Looking at the goals market, both sides were part of high-scoring matches recently.

To illustrate, Marseille’s four of the last five matches saw more than 2.5 goals, while Reims’s also have the same record. In addition, three of the last five h2hs saw over 2.5 goals.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Lorient vs Marseille

Lorient are still under pressure to remain clear of the relegation zone.

Les Merlus have lost valuable points against Reims last weekend, putting them in 16th place on 34 points. Christophe Pélissier’s team are just three points away from the relegation zone with three fixtures to play. Meanwhile, playing at home this season, the hosts have a better record than playing away.

In detail, Lorient have won six, drew five, and lost six of their 17 home matches. Moreover, they have a positive goals difference, scored 19, and conceded 18 goals at home.

On the other hand, Marseille were stunned by Lyon at Velodrome stadium in their last league match.

Les Olympiens could increase the gap from 3rd place. Instead of that, now they are in 3rd place, as Monaco have moved to second in Ligue 1 after a 2-1 victory over Lille this Friday.

Moreover, coming into this match, Marseille were knocked out of the UEFA Conference League semi-finals. They will hope to put their European disappointments after a goalless draw with Feyenoord that saw their exit from the competition.
