Match Preview

A 2-1 away loss to Reims last weekend made it two Ligue 1 (L1) defeats in a row for Marseille. However, the hosts have been solid at the Orange Vélodrome in this L1 campaign so far, losing only two of their ten home games (W5, D3, L2).
Much of that home success has been built on a string of impressive attacking performances, with Rudy Garcia’s men netting 1.9 goals on average per home game, making them the fourth-highest scoring team (by average goals scored) in the home league table.
For their part, Bordeaux have just one victory from their last seven L1 away trips (W1, D3, L3). In fact, the visitors have scored an average of only 0.7 goals per league road trip – only two teams have a worse average.
Scoring first could be Bordeaux’s key to victory – as ‘Les Girondins’ have won the two L1 away games in which they scored the opening goal this term. However, the fact that Bordeaux have failed to score in six of their ten L1 away matches (60%) will surely concern manager Éric Bedouet.
Players to watch: With Florian Thauvin suspended, Marseille will look to Mario Balotelli, who scored in his debut at the Vélodrome two weeks ago. Meanwhile, Bordeaux’s top scorer so far in this L1 season is Francois Kamano with eight goals.
Stat attack: Marseille have avoided defeat in 23 of their last 26 home fixtures in the top flight (W16, D7, L3).
Bordeaux have scored six of their seven away goals after the break, with half of those (three) arriving after the 75th minute.
Each of the last seven H2H L1 meetings (all venues) have produced under 2.5 goals and five of those games have ended level.
