Olympique Marseille hosts Amiens SC at the Stade Velodrome in a game from the Ligue 1
Olympique Marseille hosts Amiens SC at the Stade Velodrome in a game from the 28th round of the Ligue 1. In these soccer matches tomorrow we will have a look at this fixture.
Andre Vilas-Boas’ debut season in Marseille is going more than good. At this moment the club is 2nd in the Ligue 1 standings with 55 points, being outperformed only by the champion PSG. In their last four matches in the league Olympique Marseille have won four times, currently having 8 points advantage in front of the 3rd Rennes.
Last week the former European champions travelled to face Nimes at the Stade des Costieres and achieved a difficult 3-2 win. The big hero of the game was the Argentine striker Dario Benedetto who scored a hattrick for Marseille. Now he has 11 goals in the Ligue 1 to his name.
Villas-Boas has some squad problems before this match on Friday. Hiroki Sakai, Florian Thauvin and Nemanja Radonjic are all injured and unavaliable for the next game.
Amiens SC really need points at the moment because the club is nearing a relegation to the Ligue 2. Right now Amiens are in the relegation zone and they are 19th with 22 points, being five points behind the 18th Nimes and the relegation playoff spot. Amiens SC have won just four of their matches in the league so far.
Last week Amiens SC hosted Metz, but suffered a 0-1 defeat at home. Once again Luka Elsner’s team did not show enough qualities in order to record a win.
In these soccer matches tomorrow we expect Olympique Marseille to beat Amiens SC on Friday. They are currently one of the best teams in the Ligue 1, while Amiens SC are one of the worst. We don’t believe the visitors have much of a chance here.
