Nantes vs Marseille Prediction

Marseille have top three aspirations and a win could take them into the UEFA Champions League spots.

Nantes, for their part, are fairly comfortable in mid-table but are unlikely to sit back and allow their visitors to roll over them. Games involving the Pays de la Loire outfit tend to see both sides get enough chances to find the back of the net and we are backing that trend to continue.

However, Marseille's superior quality should see them through to a narrow victory with goals at both ends.

Prediction: Nantes 1-2 Marseille
