Lille vs Marseille

Lille

Even after Pepe’s departure, which was a concrete team leader, Wolves continue to play very confidently. At the moment, they stand at 4th place with 9 points difference with Marseille and 21 points with PSG. Even looking strong in France, they totally failed in the Champions League and lost the chance to play in UEFA Europa League also, because they took the last place in a group stage with only 1 point. In general, this season is very unstable for them. Of course, at Stade Pierre-Mauroy they feel much more comfortable and the results show it. At home ground, The Great Danes lost only once against Paris Saint Germain this season in Ligue 1 and won 9 games. Recently, Lille runs 3 wins in a row and at home, they have a great opportunity to continue the streak to 4 straight victories.

Marseille

Olympique de Marseille after a long break came back on almost top of Ligue 1. They stand at the moment at 2nd place with the same amount of defeats as PSG, however, with 6 draws more than 1st place. That’s why they are 12 points behind. With very strong defence and also talented attack, they are 4 wins behind dominating PSG. Villas-Boas’s main target this season is to get into the UEFA Champions League places and show to all over Europe that well-known Marseille can be strong as they were once. The Olympians build a very interesting squad and reached already high results.

Unfortunately, they lost against Lyon in Quarter-final of Coupe de France and failed to fight for this title. Both teams played very defensive style football, but Olympique Lyonnais were luckier in attack and score the only one goal on 81st minute. Now the Phocaeans can fully concentrate on Ligue 1 and even try to follow the PSG for the 1st place as there are still 12 matches left.
