Marseille vs Strasbourg: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:00, Apr 30 2021
Marseille vs Strasbourg prediction for Friday’s Ligue 1 round 35 action at Stade Velodrome in Marseille. After two wins in a row, Marseille are just one point out of a European spot as they host Strasbourg who are close to the relegation zone. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Marseille to push for a European spot

Jorge Sampaoli has turned things around at Marseille grabbing 16 points from seven matches since he has been in charge. France’s only team who has won the Champions League are on the verge of a European spot at the sixth position on the Ligue 1 table and are battling with Lens and Rennes for the fifth spot that qualifies for the Europa League.

Three wins in four matches is the best run of form Marseille have found themselves in Ligue 1 since the beginning of the season. In their last home win against Lorient by 3-2, Marseille won their first home game in Ligue 1 after conceding the opener. L’OM are in great form at home winning their last four games in Stade Velodrome.

Strasbourg need to grab points

At 15th place with 37 points, Strasbourg are still in danger of relegation as they are six points above 18th placed Nantes. One win in six games is not the kind of form that coach Thierry Laury would like to see his team perform at a very critical time of the season.

Despite that run, however, Strasbourg can be tough to beat on the road as they have lost just one of their last five away games. Laury’s team lost just once on the road after scoring the opening goal and won just once after conceding the first goal.

In their last match, they lost at home to Nantes after going in front in the first half they gave away two goals in the second half. Strasbourg had the better possession with 65% but couldn’t convert their 12 goal attempts to more than just one goal.

Key Stats

  • Marseille have won their last four home games and are undefeated in five games
  • 71% of Marseille’s home matches have seen both teams score
  • Marseille have scored in their last six home games
  • Two or more goals were scored in Strasbourg’s last five games
  • 53% of Strasbourg’s away matches have seen both teams score

Marseille vs Strasbourg Prediction

Marseille will be fighting for the three points in this match as they can’t afford to lose any if they want to qualify for the Europ League next season. Sampaoli has brought life to this team and L’OM are on course for a top-five finish.

Strasbourg will be looking for at least a point to keep themselves safe from relegation. They will defend hard for a point but their stats suggest they have conceded in their last eight matches

We will back both teams to score in this match.
