Bordeaux – Marseille Preview

  • Midtable Bordeaux enter this 116th top-flight clash versus Marseille (W38, D39, L38) hoping to avoid a fourth consecutive loss in Ligue 1 (L1) and therefore their worst such streak in over a year. That run could continue if they don’t start well, as Bordeaux are the only L1 side who have failed to recover a single point after conceding the first goal this campaign (L9).
  • Despite that, the fact that the hosts are unbeaten in their last 35 L1 home games against Marseille (W21, D14) – their longest such streak against any top-flight side – could provide them with something of a psychological boost. A good start is a priority, especially as any team leading at HT in Bordeaux’s home matches this L1 season has gone on to win (W3, L1).
  • With only one win from their last ten top-flight outings (D3, L6), despite trailing at HT only twice across that period (HT: W4, D4, L2), Marseille are in a similar predicament and sit just a place above their hosts ahead of this round. Unsurprisingly, Marseille have converted only 30% of their HT draws into wins this L1 campaign (W3, D5, L2).
  • Although they have opened the scoring in a league-best 81.82% of their L1 away games this campaign (W5, D2, L2 when doing so), ‘Les Olympiens’ are winless in five consecutive top-flight road trips (D3, L2). That run seems likely to continue, as October 1977 is the last time Marseille beat Bordeaux on the road in the top flight.
  • Players to watch: In-form Hwang Ui-jo has been the game’s first scorer in three of Bordeaux’s last five L1 matches. The battle to see who will score first could also involve Florian Thauvin (MAR) as he’s scored each of his seven league goals so far before HT.
  • Hot streak: Each of the last 17 H2Hs in L1 have witnessed under 1.5 first-half goals.
