Marseille – Lille
At the stadium Velodrome, within the 19th round of the French first division, will meet the team Olympique Marseille and Lille.
The host and current championship leader has the opportunity to use the glitch of PSG and that after this round comes off a very serious four points. Marseille has lost in the last round match of all better Monaco and all the happiness that it happened now, at a time when neither PSG does not play at the required level. I believe they have learned their lesson from that game with Monaco, and that will be a big dose of seriousness and concentration of getting into a fight with Lille. Before that defeat, they tied four matches, in which they achieved together nine goals so that we can say that efficiency is not an exaggerated problem.
When playing in front of their fans, these guys are almost invincible, although as of April lost only once, of Montpellier, in the second round of this year’s edition of the French elite league. For this game I believe that they will not happen some inconvenience, and that will continue down that far already has eight consecutive wins big at Velodrome.
Lille is in desperate season, at least for now. They play very badly, at least in my opinion, considering that in their matches sees an average of only 1.7 goals, as to the league. In the Europa League they were knocked winning just four points and four draws it through, then without a win. If there is something good in this, is the fact that now will be able to focus only on domestic competition. Currently in the championship occupied only 12th place, which is definitely not the position for a club with such a reputation. Simply, I can not link a few good results and to varying forms, they are not the biggest enemy.
Before winning the Cup against Bordeaux on penalties in the league against even more desperate Toulouse, had a black series of even 13 games without a victory. This series of them and better marketing costs on the table, and looking at the teams who could not win in this period, I see no way, and no reason to draw in this match and stitch. The biggest problem they certainly play away. By this parameter, are in the relegation zone in the French league with five points from eight away challenge this season. For those eight games, they scored only three goals, which is less than any other team.
As I said Marseille must use blunder PSG and win in this match and thus create a decent advantage over the Parisians a team Lille seems like a good opponent for something.
