The game between Marseille and Lille is the first one of round 22 of Ligue 1. The bad run of OM of nine consecutive games without a win was ended the previous weekend with a minimal 1-0 victory as a guest of Caen. The lousy performance of the team dragged back Rudi Garcia’s players from the leading positions in Ligue 1, and the distance of Lille, which are second, is now nine points, although Marseille have one game less.

On the other hand, The Great Danes are in fantastic form and recorded six wins in the previous eight fixtures in all competitions. Away from home, Lille had three consecutive victories, scoring overall seven goals – compared with five goals during the last seven games of The Great Danes as guests.

Marseille have to chase a positive result if the team want to keep their chances to play in the Champions League next season. The injury of Dimitri Payet will affect the team’s performance, but despite all this OM have some quality players. Lille may not have a win in seven consecutive fixtures on Stade Vélodrome, but The Great Danes are in amazing form and are capable of creating a surprise and taking the three points. We will avoid a bet for a final winner and will choose a bet for total goals. In recent weeks, both sides are playing attacking football and create many chances for goals.

I will back Over 2.5 Goals, with Marseille 2-1 Correct Score. We recommend placing this bet in MansionBet, where you can take advantage of a $50 Welcome Bonus and regular promotions for loyal customers.
