Manager Andres Villas Boas has been receiving lots of plaudits from fans and the media alike, for the amazing work he has put into the club. He has got Les Phoceens playing in a Barcelona-esque fashion and the club’s supporters are absolutely loving it.

This weekend, they will play host to fourth-placed Girondins Bordeaux and will be looking to clinch maximum points in front of the home crowd, to keep up the pressure on league leaders PSG.

Expect a free-flowing attacking game here, with both sides going all out for the victory. With the attacking prowess both teams possess at their disposal, goals are a given in this tie.

Marseille v Bordeaux Team News

This Marseille team are on cloud-9 at the moment, looking absolutely unstoppable as they continue to sweep opposing teams under the carpet, week in week out. They are on a stellar five-game winning streak and will be looking to stretch that run further with a win this weekend.

Sitting second, five points adrift of PSG at the summit, things are looking up at Stade Velodrome and the players will want to keep up the momentum by winning games.

Truth be told, it will be a difficult ask for Marseille to usurp this star-studded Paris Saint Germain side to the top of the table, especially with the reigning champion’s game in hand. However, a second-place finish will be a phenomenal achievement and the club will be more than happy to settle just behind Thomas Tuchel’s men come the end of the season.

The hosts have turned the Stade Velodrome into something of a fortress in recent weeks, winning their last four games on this ground. It goes without saying that this cluster of players will be raring to go all out against Bordeaux to post all three points on the board.

Confidence is sky-high within the dressing room with that good-feel buzzing from the club. They cannot afford any slip-ups in their bid to maintain their spot on the table and probably give PSG a challenge for the title.

They have lost just one home game all season, which was way back in August, their last home game ending in a convincing 2-1 victory over Brest.

Bordeaux, on the other hand, can also boast of having a very good campaign so far, sitting fourth on the standings, seven points adrift of this weekend’s opposition. They may not be the best side in the league but surely are not afar off.

They survived through November without admitting a single defeat in all of their league fixtures, their last game ending in a phenomenal 6-0 drubbing of relegation-threatened Nimes. All season, they have had only two away defeats to their name, showing how sturdy this side have been on their travels.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Marseille: Florian Thauvin.

Bordeaux: Jimmy Briand.

Marseille vs Bordeaux Predictions

Although, the visitors have been excellent on their travels, this trip is set to be a daunting one. Delivering a result over Marseille at Stade Velodrome was always going to be a difficult task and Bordeaux will have their work cut-out to pull off a result on this ground.

They will most likely give Marseille a tough time but the hosts should have enough about themselves to see off the challenge of Bordeaux.

Expect Marseille to have the three points on board at the end of the ninety minutes, bagging some goals in the process.
