Tip Lille Osc - Marseille
The race for the Ligue 1 title will be a bit more competitive this time and this will be a key highlight as Lille hosts Marseille in the 28th round. Lille have 59 points at the top of Ligue 1 while Marseille are seventh with 39 points. Both sides are coming from draws in their weekend matches. Lille’s draw with Strasbourg will have a bigger impact, as champions PSG closed in. The leaders now have just a two-point buffer. They haven’t had a smooth ride lately, getting eliminated from the Europa League and losing ground in Ligue 1. Lille have one win in their last five matches. In Ligue 1, they have a lot to salvage and they are in a pretty good run, with seven wins in the last 10 matches, and just a loss in 12. Lille have scored 10 goals in the last five league matches and have three clean sheets in the process. At home, in the last four league matches, Lille are unbeaten but have scored more than one goal in just one of the last five home league games.
Marseille, on the other hand, are coming from a 1-1 draw with Olympique Lyon and will be looking to peg back another title chaser. They haven’t been scoring a lot; in the last 10 Ligue 1 matches, they’ve scored more than a goal in just one, while they have one clean sheet in the last five league matches. The visitors have conceded twice in two of the last five league games and are winless in seven away Ligue 1 matches. Their form away from home has been a major concern, having dropped 19 of a possible 39 points away in the league this season. However, with a three-game unbeaten run against Lille, the visitors will be hopeful of a win.
