Tip Reasoning

  • Marseille have won each of their last five games against Brest.
  • Marseille are unbeaten in their last seven Ligue 1 games (Won 4, Drawn 3).
  • Brest were fortunate to keep their unbeaten run going against St Etienne on Wednesday.

Brest’s brilliant run due to end 

Marseille will fancy their chances of ending Brest’s seven-game unbeaten run on Saturday after their own marvellous domestic form continued in midweek.

Jorge Sampaoli’s side won at mid-table Nantes to make it four wins from their last seven, during which time they have kept five clean sheets. Another one could be on the cards this weekend when they host a Brest team that were fortunate to beat St Etienne. Les Verts were adamant Lucas Gourna was fouled prior to the award of a penalty against him, which – despite St Etienne hitting the woodwork twice in one late move – led to the only goal of the game.

The underlying stats of Brest’s recent run suggest it’s not sustainable and we believe it comes to an end when they travel to the Velodrome – a ground where they haven’t won in two decades. Brest have scored in every away game this season, but we aren’t tempted to back them to breach a Marseille defence that has shut out the likes of PSG, Rennes and Monaco already this term.

Sampaoli’s side unlikely to rack up goals

But rather than backing a Marseille win to nil, we are recommending the hosts to win with under 3.5 goals in the game because Sampaoli’s side are not known for big-margin wins.

Half of their eight domestic victories have been by a solitary goal, three have been by two goals and the other was a 4-1 home win over Lorient – who have been the worst away side in Ligue 1 for the past two seasons.

A 2-0 correct score play appeals due to Marseille averaging 1.75 goals per game at home and keeping five clean sheets in their last seven overall.
