Foot Predictions shows the Ligue 1 clash on Wednesday between Marseille and Nice, including hunches, news about the teams and possible lineups.
Marseille and Nice Both will be looking forward to the much-needed return to Ligue 1 victories when they face off at the Orange Velodrome on Wednesday night.
The hosts were goalless with Bordeaux last time, while Nice suffered a 2-1 loss at defending champions Paris Saint-Germain.
Marseille did not win in Bordeaux for 43 years before their trip to the Matmut Atlantique, and any hope of Les Olympiens breaking that duck was extinguished just before the hour mark on Saturday, when Leonardo Balerdi and Dario Benedetto both turned red to leave Marseille with two fewer players in the last 30 minutes.
Nasser Larguet he would undoubtedly be pleased to see his team keep Bordeaux away and wait for a share of the spoils on Sunday – a result that marked only the second time without conceding goals in 12 Ligue 1 games – but has now not won in seven since defeating the Montpellier HSC 3-1 on January 6.
Behind-the-scenes chaos has not helped Marseille’s efforts on the pitch, although Larguet has at least won his first Olympiens coach win against Auxerre in the Coupe de France last week, but he will have a lot of work if he is to prevent the Marseille falls in the bottom half of the table.
Basement Nimes is the only other team in the division that has not registered a victory in the last five matches, and Larguet’s men currently occupy ninth place on the table, although they would rise above Montpellier, Metz and Lens if they ended the series without wins this week.
Therefore, the importance of three points in this game cannot be underestimated if Marseille want to rekindle their charge for a spot in Europe, but they lost the last three in their home recovery and have not yet kept a goal without goals at Orange Velodrome all season. – something that Nice will certainly seek to take advantage of in the midst of its own struggles.
Nice may have suffered a loss at home to champions PSG last time, but the way their performance will make the Aiglons’ faithful look at the rest of the season with optimism.
Adrien UrseaThe team gave a good chance against the team from the capital, which may be looking to the imminent confrontation of the Champions League with Barcelona, and Ron Lopes capitalized on Marquinhosequalize error after Julian Draxleropener but Moise Kean ended up winning the day for PSG with his 10th place in the campaign.
Nice’s efforts ended up worth nothing for the day, and they remain in the last half, after losing three of their last four in the top flight, although wins over Angers in the league and Nimes in the cup earlier this month provided a necessary injection of confidence.
Ursea’s team will temporarily rise ahead of Reims and Brest to 12th if they beat Marseille on Wednesday, and the visitors have not only scored goals in three of the 12 away games in the top flight this season, although they have won just one. of the last five in Ligue 1 on the road.
Marseille have won trumps in the last six matches with Nice in Ligue 1, and the last time Les Aiglons returned from the home pitch with three points was in the 2015/16 season, when now the Marseille striker Valere Germain marked the winner.

All news from the teams
Balerdi and Benedetto will not play for Marseille due to the red cards against Bordeaux, with the absence of the first to guarantee the return to Lucas perrin on the side defense Boubacar Kamara.
The rear of Larguet is also depleted by injuries in Alvaro Gonzalez and Duje Caleta-Car, who should not return yet, while Hiroki Sakai and Arkadiusz Milik struggles with disease and injury to the thigh, respectively.
However, Milik would have been ineligible for this rescheduled match anyway due to his winter arrival status, which means that Pol Lirola and Olivier Ntcham will be forced to lose too.
A positive note for the hosts is the return of Dimitri Payet suspension, and the availability of the side allows Germain to fill the void left by Benedetto’s expulsion.
Nice has an extensive list of absentees to face as well, with the newly established team of defenders William Saliba and Jean-Clair Todibo set to be separated due to the ineligibility of the pair.
Flavius Daniliuc and Robson Bambu are therefore expected to win recalls to the side, but it is still too early to Youcef Atal, Kasper Dolberg and Jordan Lotomba to get back into action.
Alexis Claude-Maurice recently impressed in a central role for Les Aiglons and should keep Khephren Thuram and Morgan Schneiderlin out of the team once again.
Possible starting lineup for Marseille:
Mandanda; Nagatomo, Perrin, Kamara, Amavi; Gueye, Rongier, Cuisance; Thauvin, Germain, Payet
Good possible starting lineup:
Benitez; Pelmard, Bamboo, Daniliuc, Kamara; Boudaoui, Lees Melou, Claude-Maurice; Lopes, Maolida, Gouiri
Probability: Marseille 1-1 Nice
Marseille and Nice will be forced to remake their teams due to injuries, suspensions and ineligible players, but both teams will see this game as an excellent opportunity to return to winning ways and possibly start a good phase. This draw could easily go anywhere, depending on which front line your shooting boots meet, but we are waiting for the spoils to be shared at the Orange Velodrome.
