Marseille will face Amiens at Vélodrome Stadium of French Ligue 1 25th Round. Marseille against Amiens is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in French Ligue 1. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Marseille is struggling this season and needs to gain some confidence and finally, start playing stable football. They now stand at 6th position, that is not promoting them to Europe cups, however, they have chances to catch St. Etienne, as they have only 3 points difference with 4th position. The Olympians won 6 out of 11 home ground games in Ligue 1 and second match will be a chance to earn 3 more points.
Olympique de Marseille have great and talented players with good skills in different positions. Several players left the club by loan, because of lack of first eleven and playing experience. Some of the main squad players will miss the next match due to injuries. Adil Rami, Luiz Gustavo, and Dimitri Payet should rather get better in order to fight for hitting the European Cups. However, M. Balloteli will lead the club and need to score goals to prove he is a star striker.
This season Marseille is great at attacking set pieces, coming back from losing positions and attacking down the wings. Very likely that at home ground they will play possessional football with short passes, rotate first eleven and play width. They facing problems at avoiding individual errors and defending counter attacks.
Amiens this season is facing troubles and lack of great form, as they stand at 16th position with only 2 points difference between them and relegation zone. At road games, they won only 2 matches and lost 8, in addition, scored only 6 goals in 12 matches.
This season Amiens have two leaders in the attack, however, one of them will miss the match due to injury. M. Konate and E. Gnahore are two best scoring players of Amiens. Most interesting that Gnahore is defensive midfield and his scoring ability should help the squad to score goals, Especially when Konate will be with an injury.
This season Unicorns have much more weaknesses than strengths. They are showing great abilities at shooting from direct free kicks, and more likely that they will attack down the left and take long shots. They are showing bad performances at defending against attacks down the wings and defending against skillful players.
These teams have met 3 times. Every time Marseille were luckier and stronger as they have won all the games with at least 2 goal difference.
