Marseille 19/20 to beat Strasbourg in Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash
Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Marseille to beat Strasbourg
Odds: 19/20 @ Bet365
The French league comes to its conclusion for this game week as Strasbourg host Marseille on Sunday evening. Things are beginning to open up both at the bottom and the top of the table, with PSG increasing their lead over Monaco, while Metz and Dijon lost yet again. Strasbourg will be desperate to take some home comforts, but their opponents in the form of Marseille are in very good form this season.
The hosts have been awful so far this campaign. Strasbourg have just one win this season, and they have lost four of their last five and drawn one. This has left them in the relegation zone with just five points from a possible 24. Their weakness has been revealed to be their defence, with today’s hosts already picking the ball out of their own net 14 times this campaign. A win would hugely increase morale, but optimism isn’t high going into this one.
Marseille have looked very good this season as they continue to climb up the league table. Three wins in their last five has seen them up to fifth, while a win today would allow them to jump up to third in the table, below Monaco due to their inferior goal difference. Regardless of where a win would take them, Marseille will expect to win this one as it is against a side that have won just one game all season. If the visitors have genuine aspirations of finishing in the top three, then this is the type of game they must win. With this in mind, Bet365 are giving Marseille odds of 19/20 to beat Strasbourg this evening.
