A rejuvenated Marseille side would be looking to cut down the gap with 2nd placed Monaco to one point when they host an unpredictable Bordeaux side. It won’t be easy for Bordeaux’s defence to contain the Marseille attack that thrashed Braga 3-0 in the Europa League and FBBP 01 9-0 in the French Cup. Bordeaux’s recent form is something that could worry Marseille. They have won their last four games including a 3-1 win against Lyon.

Given Bordeaux’s return to form it won’t be easy for Marseille to get past them. However Marseille’s attacking forces can be trusted to thwart the defence of Bordeaux apart as they’ve been doing it so consistently against all their opponents so far. Bordeaux on the other hand have been in some scintillating form recently and are also expected to score. We expect the final scoreline to read 3-2 in favour of Marseille.
