Nantes vs Marseille Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Marseille will be looking for another Ligue 1 victory when they travel to the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau to take on Nantes on Saturday afternoon. Nantes lost 3-0 on the road at Lille in the opening round, with Claudio Ranieri’s men conceding all three goals in the second half. On the contrary, Marseille managed to win 3-0 at home over Dijon thanks to a brace from the summer signing Clinton N’Jie and another goal from Florian Thauvin. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I think Nantes will need a couple of weeks to adapt to Claudio Ranieri’s tactics, while Marseille have strengthened their squad considerably this summer. They already proved how strong they are in the first round and I’m backing them to secure another comfortable victory in this one. Head-to-head, MArseille have only lost once in their last four meetings with Nantes, but the hosts seem to have big problems in finding the back of the net as they have failed to score a single goal in their last four games across all competitions. Marseille to keep a clean sheet seems another value bet here.

Nantes Preview

It has been a terrible start for Claudio Ranieri, who was been appointed by Nantes in June, as Nantes suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat on the road at Lille. I think that Ranieri still needs some new signings in order to strengthen the squad as Nantes have only brought Nicolas Pallois and Ciprian Tatarusanu, while selling Amine Harit to Schalke 04 for €8m. The good news is that Nantes can count on their recent home form ahead of this clash as they have only lost once in their last eight home league fixtures. Furthermore, Nantes have won two of their last three home meetings with Marseille in Ligue 1, conceding just two goals in the process. Nantes finished on an impressive 7th spot in the Ligue 1 table last term, but they will have a more difficult task this season after Amine Harit’s departure. The good news is that Nantes still have Emiliano Sala within their ranks, as the 26-year-old striker has enjoyed an excellent campaign last term, scoring 12 goals and providing four assists for his team. Head-to-head, Nantes were on a three-game winless streak prior to their 3-2 home win in their most recent meeting back in February.

Nantes Team News

Joris Kayembe Ditu and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson are both missing through injury, while Enock Kwateng is out through suspension.

Marseille Preview

On the other hand, Marseille are currently on a 20-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, including a 3-0 home win over Dijon in the opening round of the new Ligue 1 season on Sunday. The summer signing Clinton N’Jie had a great debut as he entered the pitch in the 46th minute and scored five minutes later. Florian Thauvin made it 2-0 in the 54th minute while N’Jie completed his brace with 18 minutes to go. Marseille have a great squad and a good coach in the shape of Rudi Garcia, and they should be considered as title contenders this season, especially after both Monaco and Lyon having sold some of their key players this summer. Prior to their win over Dijon, Marseille managed to beat Oostende 4-2 on aggregate in the Europa League qualifiers to book their place in the play-offs where they will meet NK Domzale. Away from home, OM are currently on a nine-game undefeated run across all competitions, keeping four clean sheets in the process. The bad news is that Marseille have struggled for victories on the road at Nantes over the past few years as they have only won once in the last six trips. However, they managed to score at least once in five of those trips to Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau.

Marseille Team News

Rod Fanni is the only doubtful player ahead of this trip.
