Marseille - Nancy

PICK: Marseille AH -0,75 @2,07 PINNACLE 4/10

Match between 11th and 13th placed team in French Ligue 1, will be played on Sunday at 17:00 on Stade Velodrome in Marseille. Only 2 points are separating those two teams on the league table.

I need to say that I noticed improvements in Marseille's game. Under Rudi they look more focused on what they need to do, and also game style looks better. I know that some of you will think that I am stupid as OM won only once in league after Rudi overtook the club, but I am talking about how they play. I believe that results will come too, and now they're schedule looks much easier then before as they play against Nancy, Dijon, Lille and Bastia. With 9-12 points from those matches, they are back in game for the Europe. Of course it's not that easy as it sounds, but they just convinced me. Specially with last performance against St. Etienne. They're goalkeeper Ruffier was by far the best player of the match, saving incredible situations. There is still unclear situation about Diarra, but I don't care about it too much. What is important is, that this team looks good, and one big win can totally change they're minds.

Nancy won derby with 4-0, which I believe that boosted they're morale, but they are in great run for a while now. After 15th of October, when they lost against PSG, only Monaco took all three points of them. Besides that, they won 4 matches and played 2 draws. With those results they jumped from relegation places, but 20th placed Lorient is still just 5 points behind, and things are far from safe. I was thinking about Metz +0,5 in derby, but odds dropped too much and there was no value at the end, so fortunately I skipped this match. Nancy won with 4 goals difference and clean sheet, but first goal came from direct free kick - veteran Pedretti scored and all till the 78th minute when they scored 2nd goal, match was totally opened. Metz had they're chances and it could finish totally different. After second goal Metz started playing headless and they conceded two more. Assembe is only doubtful player in Correa's team.

I expect match controlled by home team. They're wingers are finally coming to form, creating lot's of chances and sooner or later they will score more goals too.

FT: 3-0
