Nantes welcomes Olympique Marseille

Nantes welcomes Olympique Marseille in a game from the 16th round of the French Ligue 1. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this game.

Nantes are having an average season so far. They are 13th in the Ligue 1 standings with 17 points won so far and a record of 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 stats. In their last five games Nantes won twice, made two draws and suffered only one defeat – against Saint-Etienne in the previous round. It was a bad day for them, losing with 0-3 and being unable to oppose to their opponent.

Clearly Nantes’ main goal this season is just to survive, so the club do not have any big ambitions at the moment. If they manage to keep their place around the middle of the table, this is going to be a success for them.

Olympique Marseille on the other hand are 5th in the Ligue 1 with 26 points, trailing on 4 points behind the 2nd Lille. Rudi Garcia’s team needs the win here in order to get back closer to the leaders in the standings.

So far Olympique Marseille have a record of 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats. The team is not as consistent as the fans and the manager would want to, but they are still in a good position to chase a Top 3 finish in the league.

In their last game Olympique Marseille lost 2 points, doing a 0-0 draw at home against Reims. Garcia’s boys were not concentrated enough in attack on this day, being unable to put the ball behind Edouard Mendy’s back.

These are our winning soccer predictions for the Ligue 1 clash between Nantes and Olympique Marseille. Clearly Marseille are the better team here, but keep in mind that they are losing a lot of points since the start of the season.
