      Slovan Liberec vs Marseille Predictions

      Braga have already qualified and Groningen have no mathematical chance to make it in, which makes this fixture between Marseille and Slovan Liberec a straight shootout for the second spot in the group. Well, not quite a straight shootout since Marseille only needs a draw to secure qualification.

      It has been a strange year all round for Marseille, including in the Europa League, but back-to-back home victories over Braga and Slovan Liberec have put them into a strong position to qualify. There’s been a little bit of a “figuring it out” with this club and there’s a growing feeling that they are now a lot tougher to play against and more likely to do themselves justice than a couple of, or even one month ago.

      Slovan Liberec enter the game with the confidence of having beaten Marseille 1-0 away from home in the second round of games. However, two defeats to Braga and an ill-fated 1-1 draw at home against the group’s basement dwellers leave them at the disadvantage in this match-up.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Slovan Liberec’s style at home

      They’re another one of these Eastern European teams with a strong record at home in European football. It’s a tough place to travel and Liberec will line-up with men behind the ball aiming to frustrate Marseille as much as possible.

      2. Marseille’s squad stretched

      They’ve played quite a bit of football, momentum is building and we can see this being a flat game. The temptation to allow it to slip towards a draw, or even travel to play for a draw will be strong for Michel’s men and we can easily see the game heading in that direction.

      3. Good odds on the Double Chance

      It’s hard not to like Liberec at home on the double chance. Their home games have seen just three goals scored in this group stage so far, we’re looking for another low-scoring and tightly played game here.
