Olympique Marseille entertain in-form Lille at the Stade Velodrome this weekend, looking to extend a winning run in their Ligue 1 H2Hs to three.
The hosts go into this encounter on the back of a 2-0 home defeat to St Etienne last time out that brought their two-game winning Ligue 1 run to a halt. Interestingly, all of Marseille’s three league results (wins/loss) this season have seen the winner on the day open the scoring before the 32-minute mark and take a narrow 1-goal lead into half-time. Yet, a loss to St Etienne now means that Andre Villas-Boas’ men have won only one from five Ligue 1 home outings this calendar year (D2, L2), netting under 1.5 goals on four of those occasions. ‘Les Phocéens’ must be confident of returning to winning ways now, considering they’ve won three of their previous four top-flight H2Hs held at this venue (L1).
As for the visitors, the visitors have racked up back-to-back Ligue 1 wins after being held to a 1-1 home draw to Rennes on Matchday 1. Notably, despite both of their league wins this term coming via the identical 1-0 scoreline, they’ve seen Lille restrict their opponents to a single shot on target in total. ‘Les Dogues’ have proved to be a rock-solid defensive unit this calendar year, keeping a clean sheet in seven of 12 Ligue 1 games since the calendar flipped while conceding precisely once in three of the other five. Away from home in 2020, none of Lille’s five Ligue 1 matches has ended in a draw, with three yielding the identical 1-0 scoreline (W4, L1).
