On Friday, Marseille will make the round trip to Stade Pierre-Mauroy to face Lille, who have yet to lose at home in 2024. Lille will be looking to extend their remarkable home run.

After the international break, Les Dogues beat Lens 2-1, but their southern guests lost 2-0 to Paris Saint-Germain at Le Classique, even though they played the whole second half with a man advantage.

Lille and Marseille: Previous Games 

Lille has not lost a single game in six consecutive matches across all competitions. Marseille enter this game, having lost three in a row in all competitions.

In 13 home games in the Ligue 1 season, Lille allowed only seven goals. Marseille is in a challenging position after suffering league losses to Rennes and PSG in consecutive matches. That caused the Phocians to drop to seventh place in Ligue 1. They have dropped to third place, ten points behind Monaco, and fourth, seven points behind Lille. Last Saturday, Jean-Louis Gasset’s team fell to PSG at home despite playing with a man advantage the whole second half.

With a lot more confidence, Lille will enter this. Against Rennes, their direct competitors for the Champions League slots, they won by a score of 2-1 last weekend, a crucial win. Paulo Fonseca’s guys were very overpowering. The game-winning goal came from Edon Zhegrova, who emerged as the hero thanks to his brace.

Probable Lille Lineup

Chevalier; Santos, Diakite, Yoro, Ismaily; Gudmundsson, Andre, Bentaleb; Zhegrova, David, Haraldsson

Probable Marseille Lineup

Lopez; Garcia, Balerdi, Gigot, Merlin; Veretout, Gueye, Harit; Henrique, Ndiaye, Aubameyang

Betting tips: Lille x Marseille

Check out our predictions of the day for Lille vs Marseille

Prediction 1: Lille x Marseille / Lille to win

Marseille fans, who have grown tired of Gasset’s new manager’s optimism and who are still dealing with a severely depleted defence, are in for another depressing weekend as they travel the ten hours to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, where they are sure to come up empty-handed.

Les Dogues will improve their European credentials at the cost of the visitors’ top-six chances, while Gasset’s men will suffer a fourth consecutive loss on a field where Lille are seldom overwhelmed and have not failed to score in more than a year.

Prediction 2: Lille x Marseille / Under 2.5 goals

Under 2.5 goals, with odds of 1.80, is the best alternative option. Marseille have been unable to score in their last two consecutive league matches. Three of their past ten road games across all competitions failed to produce a three-goal or more performance. Lille has allowed only seven goals in thirteen home Ligue 1 games this season. Lastly, less than three goals have been scored in five of the last seven head-to-head matches between these teams.

Prediction 3: Lille x Marseille / Jonathan David to score anytime

Being in spectacular form, Lille’s top marksman Jonathan David is an excellent possibility to score. He is in an ideal position to increase his goal total due to his mobility and finishing skills, which will be particularly useful against a shaky Marseille defence.
