Tip Marseille - Lille Osc
Marseille got back in winning ways last weekend when winning 1-0 at relegation-threatened Caen. That ended a run of five league games without a win and they are now five points adrift of the Europa League places. Four of their last five league wins have come against sides currently in the bottom five and their reverse fixture with Lille saw them lose 3-0 away. Home form has seen Marseille draw their last two with a disappointing stalemate with Monaco who are one from bottom in the table. They have only lost one of their last 13 home league games and overall this season they have won six home league games, drawn three and lost one and that was to PSG. Their season began with four home leagues and a draw so it has dipped in recent months.
Lille are second in the table but still 13 points behind PSG and having played two games more. They come into this game in good form with an unbeaten run of four games in league and cup. Only one of their last seven league games have been lost and away from home have three league wins in a row with six goals scored in the last two. That's a big improvement as they'd lost three of the previous four. Five of their ten away league games have been won and the suggested bet here is a double chance bet on Lille winning or drawing this game.
Key points Marseille - Lille Osc

Conclusion Marseille - Lille Osc
Lille know the Ligue 1 title is beyond them but a top three finish and qualifying for the Champions League is their main target. They are in good form at present and are four points clear of fourth placed St Etienne. Marseille have had an inconsistent time of it of late and are struggling to get into the Europa League but are difficult to beat at home. With Lille showing improved form, a double chance bet on them looks the best to go for.
