Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Lille win
Odds: 21/10 @ Bet 365
Looking to continue their impressive run of form, Lille will travel to a struggling Orange Vélodrome on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, enduring a very worrying run of form in the second half of the season, Marseille now find themselves in a battle to secure European football this year. In their 20 Ligue 1 games this season, they have recorded nine wins, four draws and seven defeats, scoring 33 and conceding 29 in return. With a points tally of 31, the Blues currently sit down in seventh position and five points adrift of the Champions League positions. As for their recent run of form, Marseille have now won just one of their last nine matches and have also failed to win any of their last four on home soil.
As for the visitors, while Lille might be chasing down a 13-point deficit to PSG at the top of the table, they are enjoying a very bright campaign. In their 21 games this season, they have won 12, drawn four and lost five, scoring 34 and conceding 21 in return. Now sat second in the Ligue 1 table, Lille also hold the second best defensive record in France’s top-flight. As for their recent run of form, the Whites have now won their last four matches across all competitions. More impressive, Friday’s visitors have also won their last four away matches on the bounce.
