Olympique Marseille hosts Lens at the Orange Velodrome in a postponed game from the 9th round of the Ligue 1. Let’s take a look at it in these free sure soccer tips.
For Olympique Marseille this is a chance to move closer to the Top 4 in the French league. Right now Andre Villas-Boas’ team is just four points behind the 4th Monaco and the 5th Rennes. They have two games in hand compared to everyone else ahead of them, so these two postponed matches are good chance for them to move up in the standings.
There seems to be some kind of a problem with Olympique Marseille’s current shape, though. In their last five matches in the Ligue 1 OM won just one of them – against Monptellier. Villas-Boas’ boys must improve and they know it.
In their last game Olympique Marseille suffered their 4th loss for the season. OM hosted Nimes at the Orange Velodrome, but the game ended with a 2-1 win for the visitors. Dario Benedetto scored Marseille’s only goal in the game.
Lens are having a decent season so far as they are 10th in the Ligue 1 standings with 28 points won. They know that three points in Marseille would allow them to move to 7th place in the standings, making a big jump.
Lens made a draw in their last game in the Ligue 1. Franck Haise’s team visited Nantes and went home with a 1-1 draw. Gael Kakuta saved the point for Lens with a late goal in the 81th minute.
That’s the free sure soccer tips for the Ligue 1 clash between Olympique Marseille and Lens. For the hosts it’s a time to improve and get back to winning on a regular basis. Lens are tough, though – it’s not going to be an easy one for the home side.
