The forthcoming fixture of Olympique Marseille and Caen is going to be a thrilling contest because Caen would be the visiting team and they would have all the fans standing behind them who would now do anything to see their team go through this one with a smile as they did in the last match, breaking their five matches non-winning draw. However, the team that would be visiting is the third team on the points table of Ligue 1 and they have lost only one of their last six matches and they are already on a 3 match winning streak and in this fixture, they would try to make it to a four-match winning streak. If we go by the points table, the home team has only managed to snatch 27 points from their eight wins and 3 draws and the visiting team has managed 44 points from 13 wins and 5 draws so far in this season so chances are high for the away team to win this match.

*(The aforementioned players are selected on the basis of their performance in their last match)
Caen has had a difficult couple of months after a promising start to the season. However, a decent win over Bordeaux, with Ronny Rodelin scoring for the first time in almost two months, will be a boost to the hosts’ confidence.
Marseille is also in good nick, having won their last four games in all competitions, but their injury list might be a cause for concern as Rudi Garcia’s side seems to lack depth at present.
