Marseille vs Lens

, KO: 20:00 Apr 28, 2024, Orange Velodrome

Marseille welcome Lens to Orange Velodrome for a Ligue 1 fixture with both teams still gunning for European finish. Neither side has been at their best lately and they appear evenly matched heading into Sunday’s clash.

Marseille are coming off a 2-2 draw with Nice in their previous Ligue 1 fixture. They came back from a goal down to lead through Jonathan Clauss and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but went on to concede the equaliser midway through the second half.

That was the second straight 2-2 draw for Marseille, who were also held at Toulouse in their previous fixture. Defending has been a major problem for Jean-Louis Gasset’s men, who have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight matches across all competitions.

Marseille will head into Sunday’s clash with some confidence having lost just once at home all season. However, they have picked up just two wins from their last seven matches at Orange Velodrome, playing out four draws in that run.

Lens travel to Orange Velodrome off the back of a 1-0 victory over Clermont last time out in Ligue 1. They struck early in the first half through Florian Sotoca’s penalty and were able to hold on for the win.

That was a vital result for Lens, who had failed to win any of their previous four matches. They are currently in the final European slot but need to be wary of Marseille, who are just five points behind.

Lens have been erratic on their travels, claiming four wins from their last 10 Ligue 1 away matches. Franck Haise’s men have also played out three draws in that run but head into Sunday’s clash with back-to-back 2-1 defeats at Lille and Metz.
