SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Lille's meeting with Marseille in Ligue 1 on Wednesday night.
Lille vs Marseille (Wednesday, 20:00)
Ligue 1 leaders Lille will be looking to get back to winning ways when they welcome Marseille to the Stade Pierre Mauroy on Wednesday night.
After crashing out of the Europa League last midweek, Christophe Galtier's side then slumped to a 1-1 draw at home to Strasbourg on Sunday.
With just four points separating the top-four sides in France, Les Dogues can ill-afford another slip-up when Marseille come to town this midweek.
After a turbulent couple of weeks, Marseille have steadied the ship with a five-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
Jorge Sampoli will be keen to see his new side extend that sequence in northern France, but as ever I'm going to swerve the match result market and instead head to Bet 365‘s Bet Builder.
The 10/11 (Bet 365) combination that I like the look of here is over zero Lille goals, over one Marseille card and over one Marseille corner.
Lille are unbeaten in 10 French top-flight tussles, scoring in 9/10 of those matches, while Marseille have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine league outings.
With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Lille have little room for error in their quest for the title, I'm happy to back the hosts to hit the back of the net at least once here.
In order to boost the Bet Builder price, I'll also back Marseille to receive over one card during this dust-up.
OM are the most ill-disciplined side in the division this term with their 2.77 yellow card per game average, a figure that increases to a lofty 3.23 away from home.
When digging a bit deeper it can be seen that the Stade Velodrome outfit have received two or more cards in each of their last 10 Ligue 1 assignments, racking up four red cards in the process.
I'll complete the Bet Builder with over one Marseille corner – the French giants are averaging 4.65 flag kicks per 90 minutes and they have hit 2+ in 12 of their last 13 Ligue 1 matches.
- Over 0 Lille Goals, Over 1 Marseille Card & Over 1 Marseille Corner – Bet Builder – 10/11 (Bet 365)
