Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Olympique Marseille will be looking to build on a 1-0 win over Lorient when they host Lens at their Stade Velodrome on Matchday 9. OM head into the match following the Champions League showdown with Premier League giants Man City, meaning that tired legs could prove to be a problem for the home side. Marseille have been showing signs of improvement in the Ligue 1 of late, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their third consecutive win in the national championship.
Boss Andre Villas-Boas can count on all first-team regulars for Friday’s football game. Lens, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss at Lille, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home side. Both Gradit and Michelin are banned for the visitors.
