Caen were beaten for the fourth time in five winless games last time out as they went down 2-0 at home to Nantes and so they’ve dropped down to 17th, now just a point clear of the relegation zone, which is in stark contrast to last season when they finished up in 7th. Marseille, on the other hand, are having a much better season after they ended up in 13th last term as they currently sit 6th, though four draws in their last five has halted their progress somewhat.
Caen have now failed to score in four of their last five and also in five of their last seven at home as they lost six of these. They managed some impressive results at the Stade Michel d'Ornano earlier on in the season as they beat the likes of Nice and Lyon there, but they’ve shipped 10 in their last four at home, five of which came against fellow strugglers Angers and Montpellier and so it’s little surprise to see Marseille chalked up as favourites.
Rudi Garcia’s side have had bore draws in their last three on the road, but they’ve generally been pretty effective when travelling to the lesser sides as they’re W3-D1-L1 at bottom-six sides so far this term. Since they’ve kept a clean sheet in their last three away whilst Caen continue to struggle for goals, we’re backing Marseille to win to nil.
