Marseille to Win-to-Nil

Angers is by far the worst team in the league and for Marseille it seems they are the ideal opponent for this match. Marseille vs Angers prediction is about the home team taking away any chance of a surprise result for the bottom club who are decimated by injuries and have no hope in the last few rounds of the Ligue 1 season. Marseille is unbeaten against Angers in their last four outings with three wins in the process. After they lost to Lens last week, a team that is their main rival for the second position in the standings, the home side don't have much leeway in the last three games of the year.

Over 3.5 Goals

With Angers unable to field a team capable of competing at the highest level with all the injuries they have, Marseille will look to close the loop rather quickly. The last time they played in Marseille, the hosts won with a 5-2 score, and it seems that this time around we could get another similar game. Marseille has been doing well-scoring goals this season, and at the same time, Angers is very good at conceding. The visiting team has the worst defense in Ligue 1 with 74 allowed goals. In the last four Marseille vs Angers duels, two of them ended up going over the 3.5 goals mark.

Team News, Preview, and Marseille vs Angers Lineups

Marseille

Last weekend's clash against Lens was the key match for Marseille in their battle to secure a top-two position in the league which would guarantee a direct path toward the Champions League for next season. They are still in a good position to get third place which would offer a spot in Europe's premier tournament through the qualifying stage. Azzedine Ounahi is the only player missing for Marseille.

Expected lineup: Lopez, Mbemba, Gigot, Kolasinac, Clauss, Rongier, Veretout, Tavares, Under, Malinovsky, Sanchez.

Angers

There is not much relevance that can be said about Angers' season, they are the worst team in the league with only three wins on their record. To make matters worse, they have up to nine players missing for this weekend's match: Ousmane Camara, Faouzi Ghoulam, Pierrick Capelle, Farid El Melali, Amine Salama, Ilyes Chetti, Ali Kalla, and Ulrick Eneme-Ella are out with health issues while Cedric Hountondji is suspended.

Expected lineup: Bernardoni, Kalumba, Bamba, Hountondji, Valery, Thioub, Abdelli, Mendy, Bentaleb, Bahoya, Niane.

Player to Watch: Alexis Sanchez

The prolific Chilean striker has been leading the goalscoring charts for Marseille this season with 13 goals, but he did have a part of the season where he could get on the scoresheet. He is the key figure for his team and will look to add some more goals against the weakest team in the competition.
