Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Olympique Marseille and Lens face each other at Stade Velodrome in what is expected to be a very entertaining game. OM have yet to recover from the Super Cup defeat to PSG, with the team failing to impress in a 2-1 loss to Nimes at the weekend. Andre Villas-Boas’ troops failed to turn their dominance into the equalizing goal, with former Newcastle ace Thauvin missing a penalty kick. Defender Boubacar Kamara, who suffered an injury in the defeat to Nimes, has joined Amavi and Mandanda in the recovery room.
Tomaz da Lima remains quarantined. Lens, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Nantes in their last league fixture. The newcomers aim to retain their spot in top ten, but we are tempted to put our money on Olympique Marseille, who were more than unfortunate not to grab from their last league fixture. The likes of Bade, Jean, and Traore are all out of contention with injuries.
