Our Top Free Predictions for Bordeaux vs Marseille
There was no winner in two Ligue 1 encounters between Bordeaux and Marseille. The first meeting of the 2019/20 season ended 0-0 at home to Bordeaux and 2-2 away in Marseille. Will Bordeaux break the curse of back to back barren draws at home against Marseille? Our analysis for our best picks for this game is as follows:
Both teams to score: Yes @ 18/25 (1.72)
A long break of close to two weeks should get Bordeaux back on track after some poor results towards the end of 2021. And despite losing to Brest in the France Cup Round 16, including a 3-2 home defeat before the festive break, Bordeaux had managed to stop Marseille from winning in the last two home games against the visitors. Marseille did not win in the last 13 trips to Bordeaux, nine of which were draws. The hosts only failed to score in the last two home matches against Marseille last season, all of which ended 0-0. And despite a poor run of form compared to Marseille’s good run, Bordeaux has registered an impressive scoring record. The hosts only failed to score once in their last 12 matches.
Marseille to win @ 11/20 (1.55)
Marseille has never won away at Bordeaux in the last 13 trips. The last 20 meetings have no away victory for both teams, so we expect a tough duel, especially after the internal break. Our pick for this Ligue 1 fixture is that both sides will score and Marseille to win. The biggest undoing for Bordeaux will be a long list of absentee players, most of whom have been sidelined with sickness.
