Whereas, Nice are second in terms of points on the road. Marseille are also without their star man, Dimitri Payet, due to injury.

Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Olympique Marseille 1-2 OGC Nice and is available at odds of 12/1.

Alternatively, you can bet on any Marseille win at 2.05/1 against Les Aiglons at home on Sunday.

Match Preview

Les Phocéens welcome OGC Nice to the Orange Vélodrome on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. The battle for the second guaranteed Champions League place could be largely settled here with these teams currently tied on both points and goal difference.

Olympique Marseille come into the match on a run of two home defeats in a row whilst also failing to score in both matches. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

L’OM won their last league match away to Stade Brestois. Expected goals of 1.9 to 0.4 in favour of Marseille indicates it was likely a fair result even if the scoreline was somewhat flattering. To score four goals despite an xG of just 1.9 suggests some excellent finishing was on display from Les Olympiens. Gerson, Arkadiusz Milik, Amine Harit and Cengiz Ünder all getting their name on the scoresheet. The final score of the match was 1-4.

In Payet’s absence, Arkadiusz Milik is Olympique Marseille’s favourite to score here and is 2.37/1 to add to his six league goals this season on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, OGC Nice, come into the match on a run of four league games undefeated with a clean sheet in each of those four matches. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Eaglets’ last league match, away to Montpellier HSC, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 2.6 to 0.7 in favour of Montpellier indicates Nice were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point.

Dante contributed to Nice’s problems when he handed Montpellier a big chance from the penalty spot on the half-hour mark. Walter Benítez bailed out his teammate though by saving the resulting spot-kick. However, the resulting red card to Dante meant Les Aiglons were just trying to hang onto a point for the remaining hour and thus failed to create any big chances in the match.

Nice have failed to score in each of their last three away league matches. Amine Gouiri is their top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.5/1 to end their mini goal drought by scoring against Olympique Marseille on Sunday.
