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

 

Ligue 1 continues this weekend on Wednesday, the 20th of January 2021 as Olympique Marseille vs. RC Lens kicks-off at 21:00 (GMT+1), in Stade Velodrome.

 

Olympique Marseille haven't been in their best form in the last few weeks. They lost to Nimes on Saturday, the 16th of January, 2-1 – with their only goal coming from Dario Benedetto (85'). Before that tie, they were defeated by PSG, 2-1. In summary, Marseille have won only one game in their last six across all competitions. They dropped a spot lower to 6th position having 32 points on the Ligue 1 standings after 9W, 5D & 4L. They have a form that reads: DLWDLL across all competitions and scored 26 goals, conceded 18 - leaving them with a GD of +8. 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 Lens with Benedetto leading the attack once again on Wednesday. On injuries, Marseille will be missing Jordan Amavi and Boubacar Kamara when this tie kicks off.

 

RC Lens on the other hand picked up a 1-1 draw against Nantes on Saturday. Lens have won only two of their last six games: WLWLLD. Lens are 10th on the Ligue 1 table – having 28 points with a GD of 0 after scoring 29 goals and conceding equal number of goals. After 19 games, they have 8W, 4D & 7L. The 49-year-old coach, Frank Haise would be looking to avoid a defeat against Marseille when his side travels to the Stade Velodrome this mid-week. A 3—4—3 formation with Sotoca and Ganago leading the attack as a duo is anticipated when Lens make their 20th League appearance of the season. On injuries, Loic Bade and Corentin Jean are both ruled out of this tie.
