Match Preview

Les Phocéens welcome FC Nantes to the Orange Vélodrome on Wednesday for this Ligue 1 match. Marseille won 0-1 in Nantes in the reverse fixture back in December. This leaves them chasing a first league double over Nantes since the 2005/06 season.

Olympique Marseille come into the match on a run of two home wins in a row. They have picked up 12 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

L'OM lost their last league match away to Paris Saint Germain. Expected goals of 1.4 to 0.3 in favour of Paris Saint Germain indicates perhaps it was a fair result. It took a handball by Valentin Rongier to finally give PSG the winner in the match after Duje Caleta-Car scored a 30th-minute equaliser. The final score of the match was 2-1.

Dimitri Payet is Olympique Marseille’s top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 2.8/1 to score against FC Nantes on Wednesday.

Their opponent on Wednesday, FC Nantes, come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Canaries shared the points in their last league match at home to SCO Angers. Expected goals of 3.4 to 0.4 in favour of Nantes indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match. The fact they missed five big chances to get all three points in the match highlights why this is certainly two points dropped rather than one point won. It was Kalifa Coulibaly's equalising goal that got at least a point for Nantes. Coulibaly now has two league goals this season for Nantes and is 5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.
