Date: Sunay, 8 April, 2016
Start time: 20:00 GMT
Marseille and Bordeaux face each other in a match of 33 th round of the “Ligue 1”. The clash of “Stade Vélodrome” is Sunday, April 10, at 20:00 GMT
Marseille is in terrible shape and there is no success in “Ligue 1” already two months. The team is in 13th place with a total of 39 points and must win the Cup of France, where the semifinals against Sochaux if it wants to play in the Europa League next season. After the defeat at home with 2:5 from Rennes before the break for international matches, Marseille left empty-handed from a visit to Bastia, lost 1:2.
Their presentation at home is even more tragic. Marseille last won in the league at “Stade Vélodrome” was against Bastia – on September 13, 2015. Since then, the team recorded nine draws and four losses, making it among the worst hosts in the French elite. Coach Mitchell team should do a miracle to transform the team if he wants to return to winning ways at “Velodrome” after more than six months.
Bordeaux is not in her best form and has three points more than its upcoming rival and occupies 12th place. In the last round, the team ended a run of five games without a win in the league, having walked away with three points in their visit to second Monaco. With winning streak to end the season ‘Les Girondins’ can find a place in the Europa League, but maybe you’ll have to win all their remaining matches. However, the team will certainly try to record a second successive success as a guest of one of the worst teams in the league as regards their performance at home.
Before success over Monaco but Bordeaux was humiliated by Toulouse (0:4) and Reims (1:4), so their performance outside is not good and you have to show that the triumph of their “Stade Louis II” was not an accident.
In the first game, this season both teams made a draw 1:1. Last season at “Velodrome” Marseille won with 3:1 and in four of their last five matches had reached to exchange goals. Due to the poor form of both teams lately forward again hits in two doors because they are rare cases when these two teams managed to record a clean sheet.
