Having conceded a stoppage-time winner to start their Champions League group stage campaign on the wrong foot in midweek, Marseille target their second Ligue 1 win in six games when travelling to Lorient on Saturday afternoon.

Their hosts this weekend sit just outside the relegation places after seven matches, with seven points from a possible 21 to start the new campaign. By contrast, Andre Villas-Boas’ side sit sixth and will be hoping to climb even further towards top spot this weekend with another victory.

Marseille have won their last two H2H meetings with a 6-1 aggregate score against Lorient, who’ve started life back in the top-flight rather slowly. Can they spring a surprise here though? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Lorient vs Marseille Betting Tips

Jordan Amavi overplayed the ball and was duly punished in gut-wrenching fashion. Mathieu Valbuena – a OM player there for eight years – turned provider with a floated cross for Olympiacos substitute Ahmed Hassan, who made no mistake.

Marseille came away empty-handed in their first Group C encounter. Manchester City and Porto will pose difficult challenges to come, but a return to France’s top-flight could prove a welcome distraction after that late defeat.

They snapped a four-match winless run by beating Bordeaux 3-0. Having beaten defending champions PSG in September during a game marred by late indiscipline, Amavi and Florian Thauvin excelled last weekend. It seems cruel the former was involved in Olympiacos’ winner, but shows how quickly things change in football.

Lorient by contrast, will hope things continue disrupting Marseille’s flow. They came back from a goal down to beat Stade Reims 3-1 away last Saturday, with Yoane Wissa excellent. He scored one, completed a game-high seven dribbles with three tackles during a busy afternoon’s work.

Trevoh Chalobah (on-loan from Chelsea) impressed in central midfield, while Julien Laporte led by example at centre-back. Can they sustain that level here?

Lorient vs Marseille Correct Score Predictions

Both sides won their most recent Ligue 1 games, but neither are in good form of late – especially Lorient. Marseille will be fired up to respond after Wednesday’s loss, so I’m backing them to prove too much for Saturday’s hosts.
