Prediction published on January 14, 2022 at 11:02 AM - Modified on January 14, 2022 at 12:02 PM
Marseille welcomes Lille to the Stade Vélodrome for this Matchday 20 encounter in the French Ligue 1. The hosts are in 3rd place with 36 points while the visitors are in 10th position with 28 points. Marseille are unbeaten in their last six matches across all competitions with their last defeat coming against Brest in December. This defeat is their only loss in the last 11 home matches. They are on the same number of points as second placed Nice but have the inferior goal difference. They do however have a game in hand over Nice. Marseille have lost their last two matches against Lille but have never lost three successive matches against them in top flight football. They have lost 13 out of their 16 matches against current league champions.
Lille have looked a shadow of the team that won Ligue 1 last season. The defence of their title is all but over as they find themselves 19 points behind runaway leaders PSG. The selling of key players has been detrimental to their team and their beat hope for the season will be to qualify for Europe. They are three points outside of the Europa positions and have enjoyed a recent resurgence in form. They are unbeaten in their last seven league matches with four draws and three wins. In the eight other seasons that Lille had 28 points or less after 19 matches they have never finished above sixth position.
