Possibly the most improved club this summer in France, Marseille have signed up to six first-team players in this window. Most of them are likely to be featured in this pre-season friendly against Norwich City and considering that the visiting Canaries were relegated to the Championship recently, it will be surely a tough trip for the English club. Nevertheless, the Ligue 1 side put 4 past a local club in their last game on Wednesday, and Norwich scored an average of 3 goals in their first two games of this campaign - making this game a lucrative watch for the goal-hunters.

Olympique de Marseille vs Norwich City Betting Tips

Marseille scored over 2.5 goals almost consistently in the last few games of the previous season, and in the first pre-season friendly as discussed before. The Ligue 1 side looks all set to play with an attacking mindset all season long and Norwich might face the wrath. During their relegation campaign last season, the Canaries conceded 3 or more goals in 5 of their last 7 games of the Premier League and that sets the right tone for Marseille to demolish them on Saturday night too. Our prediction will be the home side winning with over 2.5 goals being scored and a final result of 3-0 for the home side.

  • Best Tip: Home / Over 2.5
  • Prediction: 3-0 Marseille

Olympique de Marseille Team News

The six (big) new signings are surely set to start this game on Saturday night. Goal-keeper Pau Lopez and winger Cengiz Under arrived from Roma earlier this summer for fees of £10.8 million and £7.56 million respectively. Tall and versatile forward Arkadiusz Milik also joined in from the Serie A club Napoli for £14.4 million and is expected to start in front of the new midfield duo - Matteo Guendouzi and Kevin Strootman. Lastly, regular centre-back Leonardo Balerdi's injury means that Samuel Gigot will also make his debut for the Ligue 1 club on Saturday. This looks like a team which might trouble Paris Saint-Germain a bit in the French league.

Norwich City Team News

Norwich have been relegated twice in the last four seasons from the Premier League now, and thus the financials are not very strong for the new Championship club. Despite the same, we can see Isaac Hayden joining in from Newcastle United who shall perfectly settle in the first team eleven right from this trip to Marseille. Hayden will fill the boots of Oliver Skipp, who left for Tottenham earlier last season, leaving a big void in the defensive midfield department of the club. Veteran goal-keeper Tim Krul's injury means that Angus Gunn will be between the sticks on Saturday evening.
