Lille vs. Marseille Match Analysis and Prediction

Lille will be steady to avoid any slip-ups so far in their impressive campaign in the race for Ligue 1 glory as they welcome Marseille in the midweek fixture. The match schedules for Wednesday at Stade Lille-Metropole, with kickoff at 11 pm.

The hosts could only take a point against Strasbourg in a 1-1 draw at the weekend, while Marseille left a goalless stalemate at the Choc des Olympiques with Lyon in their last outing.

Lille’s mind seems fixated on their unceremonious exit from Europa League when they squared off against a relegated-threatened Strasbourg. The side managed to share spoils with the Ligue 1 hopefuls in the 1-1 draw on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Fonte equalized Ludovic Ajorque’s first strike to ensure the outfit does not suffer back-to-back defeats for the first time this season. However, there is much for the outfit to do if they want to cement their title race.

The fatigue from the Europa exit at Ajax’s hands seems to be taking a toll on the camp, who went three games without a win on home soil. Christophe Galtier’s men have only one win in their past five competitions.

Following the dramatic departure of Andre Villas-Boas, there is another space opening up for a 62-year-old. Strasbourg is currently languishing in 7th position while sixteen points off top-four race ahead of their Wednesday clash.
