Marseille vs Strasbourg – Prediction H2H – 20/10/2019




Preview and Teams Comparison.

Marseille are unbeaten in their last eight games against Strasbourg in Ligue 1 (W4 D4), their best such run against this opponent since June 1968-August 1974 (12). Marseille are winless in their last four games in Ligue 1 (D3 L1), their worst run since December 2018-January 2019. Marseille are unbeaten in their last 11 games against Strasbourg at home in Ligue 1 (W8 D3), with their last home loss against them coming back in March 1997 (0-1).

Marseille enter this match looking to complete a run of four consecutive Ligue 1 (L1) home fixtures without a loss (W1, D2). With that good form behind them, they have reason to believe they can further build on their outstanding historical top-flight H2H home record against Strasbourg. Marseille have won only two of their last seven home games in Ligue 1, after winning five of the previous six (D1). If they do win here, it will likely be with a clean sheet, as the ‘Olympians’ have registered one in ten of their last 12 L1 victories at the Stade Vélodrome. Scoring first could be a game decider in any case, as Marseille are unbeaten in the previous 14 L1 home games in which they scored the opening goal.

Marseille should be happy to face Strasbourg here, considering they’ve not lost a L1 home match against them since 1997. In fact, ‘Le Racing’ have registered only one win across their last 12 top-flight away fixtures, while failing to score on seven occasions across that period. Strasbourg have won two of their last four Ligue 1 games (L2), as many as in their previous 21 (D11 L8). This game could be a tight clash though, especially as just one of Strasbourg’s last 12 L1 away matches have been settled by a two-goal margin or larger. However, the fact that the visitors are yet to score an away league goal this term will certainly worry traveling fans.
