After enduring contrasting fortunes in the first half of the Ligue 1 season, Bordeaux and Marseille kick off the second half with a Friday night clash. Marseille found their form in the final weeks of 2021 and should maintain their momentum against Bordeaux who remain troubled.

Bordeaux had a forgettable first half of the season where they claimed just three wins from 19 Ligue 1 matches. Sitting just one point above the bottom three, they have been dragged into the relegation battle and will be keen to improve results.

Vladimir Petkovic’s men ended 2021 with just one win in their final five Ligue 1 matches. They appear to have carried their struggles into the new year after crashing out of the Coupe de France following a 3-0 defeat to Brest last Sunday.

Bordeaux head into Friday’s clash winless in their last four Ligue 1 matches at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique. They have lost three times in that run and were beaten 3-2 by Lille in their previous league fixture.

Marseille’s fortunes in the first half of the season were in stark contrast to Bordeaux’s as they challenged near the top. Like everyone else, they are playing catch-up to runaway leaders PSG but are likely to be satisfied with a return to the UEFA Champions League.

Jorge Sampaoli’s men ended 2021 with three wins and a draw from their final four matches of the year across all competitions. They appear to have carried their good form into the new year after claiming a 3-0 victory over lower league side Chauvigny in the Coupe de France.

Marseille have impressed on their recent travels, winning their last three away matches in Ligue 1. They have also been tighter at the back on the road and have kept clean sheets in all three matches.

How the bookies view it

Marseille have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 10/13 by SBK to claim the win. A victory for Bordeaux is valued at 19/5 with Coral while a draw is set at odds of 33/10 by Unibet.

Head to head

Marseille have an 18-14 advantage with 23 draws from 55 previous matches against Bordeaux. Both teams battled to a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture back in August.

Players to watch

Marseille have looked solid at the back in recent weeks, keeping clean sheets in their last three away matches in Ligue 1. Duje Caleta-Car has been a mainstay in the heart of the defence and can ensure that run continues at 15/8 with Paddy Power.

There is also quality at the other end of the pitch with Dimitri Payet, Arkadiusz Milik and Cengiz Under who have all impressed this season. All three men can ensure Marseille find the net at 1/8 with Vbet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Marseille have won to nil in their last three away matches in Ligue 1 and could be set for a repeat at 12/5 with BetVictor. Having won 2-0 against Strasbourg in their previous away fixture in the league, a -1 handicap could also be considered at 21/10 with novibet.

Marseille have been the only team to score in their last three away matches and that run could be tipped to continue at 12/5 William Hill.
