Marseille will be hosting Moses Simon’s Nantes at Stade Velodrome on Saturday night Ligue 1 encounter as bidding to continue their positive start to the 2022-23 season.

Two teams who will have hopes of finishing in the Champions League places as the home side have picked up four points from their first two matches of the campaign to sit second in the table after their 100 percent record was spoiled with a 1-1 draw by Brest.

Meanwhile, Nantes also drew last time out after playing 1-1 with Lille as Super Eagles star Simon his account of the season and it was Les Canaris’s second successive match to finish all-square.

IMPORTANT STATS:

MARSEILLE 

Marseille have an edge over Nantes after winning three out of the previous four meetings including doing the ‘double’ in last season’s campaign with a 1-0 win away at Stade de la Beaujoire before posting a 3-2 win at Stade Velodrome.

The home side’s last seven fixtures at this venue against Les Canaris saw both teams score.

NANTES

Nantes are not good travellers after winning one of their last 10 outings away and suffered five defeats in the process.

The visiting have won just once on the road in 2022 but have scored in all of their previous seven away competitive games.

FCNAIJA PREDICTION:

Marseille should win the encounter at Stade Velodrome but Fcnaija tipster is not expecting a high-scoring contest on Saturday as we are predicting under 3.5 goals in this match.
