Marseille vs Nantes: Our top betting tips
Both of these sides remain unbeaten after two league games; will that still be the case come the full time whistle? Find out with our Marseille vs Nantes match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Marseille to win
We kick off our tips by backing Marseille to end Nantes’ unbeaten start to this Ligue 1 season. Marseille have looked good in the opening games with four points from; they absolutely blew Reims away in their only home game of the season too, which bodes well for this match. As for Nantes, they are unbeaten but they are also winless. It’s a big ask for them to change that here with a somewhat shoddy record against Marseille; Marseille have won three of the last four meetings and haven’t lost to Nantes in over three years.
It will be low scoring
Our next prediction for Marseille vs Nantes is that it will be a low scoring match. Marseille have gone under 2.5 goals in four of their last five games; Nantes have a very similar record with just one of their past five going over 2.5 goals. As for the head to head record, two of the last three clashes have gone south of the 2.5 marker.

Nantes unbeaten start to end at the Velodrome
It's very early days admittedly but neither of these teams have yet tasted defeat in the new campaign, which means it's highly likely something will give here with none of the last five meetings where Marseille have been at home having ended level. With Marseille at home, it will be interesting to see how Nantes set up to try and get a result.
Marseille have made a decent start to the season with four points taken from a possible six and they'll see this as another winnable game despite the fact Nantes are yet to be beaten this season. In Luis Suarez and Nuno Tavares, they've already got a couple of players with multiple goals scored; will either of those bag again?
Marseille Predicted lineup – Blanco, Balerdi, Gigot, Mbemba, Clauss, Rongier, Guendouzi, Tavares, Gerson, Under, Milik
The classification of Nantes' start to the season depends on your outlook. On one hand, they're unbeaten. On the other, they're winless. Regardless of your view, they'll obviously want to win a match soon but an away day in Marseille is probably not the easiest place to do that. We expect them to set up for a point.
Nantes Predicted lineup – Lafont, Castelletto, Girotto, Pallois, Coco, Merlin, Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Blas, Simon, Mostafa Mohamed
