Caen vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 19th January 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).
On Friday night, Marseille travel to Caen in Ligue One, as the visitors attempt to move into the automatic qualification spots for next season’s Champions League.
Caen are currently mid-table in the French top-flight but are closer to the relegation spots than the four European berths. A 2-0 victory over Bordeaux last time out ended a six-game run without a league win for the home side.
The home side have struggled for goals of late scoring just four times in their last seven league outings. The fact that they have struggled for goals of late has contributed to there being under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five Ligue One outings.
Marseille can move up to second in the French top-flight table with a victory, as OM currently trail second-place Lyon by just a point.
Rudi Garcia’s team have been in good form of late in Ligue One, having won four of their last five games in the French top-flight. Stretching back a bit further, the visitors have lost just one of their last 16 games in Ligue One.
Caen vs Marseille Head to Head [H2H]:
- Marseille has scored 10 goals against Caen in their last 2 meetings
- Marseille has won 6 games in a row at Caen’s ground
- Caen has not beaten Marseille at home this century
Marseille to win.
