Marseille are one of the best sides in France, shrugging shoulders with serial Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain over the years. Last season, they picked up a staggering 56 points to finish second, twelve points behind the Parisians.

Meanwhile, Lille ensured they finished in the top-four to book a ticket to the qualifying rounds of the Europa League. This time around, Les Dogues will be hoping to play out a more successful campaign, perhaps clinching a higher spot on the log.

Marseille vs Lille Team News

Huge admirers of the prestigious Ligue 1 trophy, Marseille have continued to be beaten to the title by their archrivals PSG in recent times. In fact, it has become embarrassing as Tuchel’s men have lifted the trophy three times on the bounce.

Perhaps, it is now time for Marseille to bring PSG’s monopoly of league title wins to a halt. Marseille must be really delighted to see the Parisians begin the new season so slowly, losing their first two games of the season.

Capitalizing on their archrival’s horrendous start to the campaign, Marseille have picked up six points from their first three games to begin their hunt for league glory. Having gotten the head-start, it is now up to Villas-Boas’ men to keep grinding out results.

Last time out in the league, they fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat to St-Etienne. Even though they were touted as favorites for victory, the Olympians capitulated at the hands of Puel’s charges as the latter kept their 100% winning start intact.

Thauvin and Payet were kept quiet by Etienne’s sturdy defense, both players failing to produce their best performance. With that loss in mind, Marseille will be desperate for victory against Lille this weekend, to return to winning ways.

They are set to encounter a difficult challenge against this Lille side who also began the new season brilliantly. With two wins and a draw so far, Les Dogues are yet to taste defeat this term. They currently occupy fourth-spot on the log.

Following the drab one-all draw against Rennes in their opening fixture, Galtier’s men have gone on to register wins over Reims and Metz. Goals have been difficult to come by for LOSC given they have managed just one goal in each of their opening three matches.
That aside, Lille are on a brilliant run of form, remaining unbeaten in their last six games, and winning five of those. 

They have also kept clean sheets in seven of their preceding nine league games, conceding a measly three goals in that time. Interestingly, two of those came against Marseille.

Marseille vs Lille Predictions

As stated earlier, Lille are on a stupendous run of form, winning their last four away games, and refusing to concede a goal on three occasions. It goes without saying that they have one of the best defensive records in the league.

However, they are unlikely to prevent Marseille from scoring this weekend, but are sure to frustrate their attacking efforts. Even so, the hosts should win this, via a narrow win margin.
