Marseille vs Nimes– Ligue 1 Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction.

Ligue 1 continues this weekend on Saturday, the 16th of January 2021 as Olympique Marseille vs. Nimes kicks-off at 17:00 (GMT+1) on Matchday 20 at the Stade Velodrome.

Olympique Marseille lost to PSG, 1-2 in Wednesday's Trophee des Champions final played at the Stade Bollaert-delelis. Dimitri Payet (89') scored the only goal for Marseille while Mauro Icardi (39') and Neymar (85') got the goals for the opponents. However, Marseille picked up a goal less draw against Dijon in their last Ligue 1 match which took place on the 9th of January 2021. That draw saw them drop a spot lower to 6th place - having 32 points on the Ligue 1 standings after 9W, 5D & 3L. They have a form that reads: WLDLWD across all competitions and have scored 25 goals and conceded 16 - leaving them with a GD of +9. Andre Villas-Boas' Marseille will be hoping to keep up with the league’s top-four in what could be called the tightest race for the Ligue 1 title in a decade. The former Chelsea coach is expected to adopt a 4—2—3—1 formation against Nimes with Benedetto leading the attack on Saturday. On injuries, Marseille will be missing Jordan Amavi and Morgan Sanson when this tie kicks off. Meanwhile, Luis Henrique tested positive for coronavirus and remains in isolation.

Bottom placed Nimes lost yet again in their last Ligue 1 match to Lille by a lone goal – courtesy of Lille's Yilmaz (29'). They have failed to win any of their last six games across all competitions: LLDLLL and have 3W, 3D & 13L after nineteen games which have accumulated to only 12 points so far. Nimes have 14 goals but conceded 40 along the way …. and hence have a GD of -26. Coach, Jérôme Arpinon who has a 15.79%-win ratio with Nimes ever since his appointment on the 23rd of June, 2020 will likely adopt a conventional 4—2—3—1 formation with Roux leading the attack. Centre-forward, Clement Depres is sidelined due to injury and will be missing this Saturday tie along with Centre-back, Loick Landre who has a muscle injury.

The last time both sides met was in December 2020. It ended in a 2-0 victory for Marseille. Before that match, they played in August 2020 and it was a 1-0 victory for Marseille. On the 28th of February 2020, the tie ended 3-2 in Marseille’s favor.

A 2-0 victory for Marseille is predicted at full-time.
