Live in-play betting – 

Marseille will continue their quest to finish in the last European spot in this game against a Mario Ballotelli inspired Nice.

Marseille will consider this season a disappointment when they consider the ambition of their new owner as well as the January purchases he made.

They are currently 6th in the league table,  just 2 points behind 4th placed Lyon who occupy the last European spot on the league table but they have played a game more.

They have not lost any of their last 6 league games winning 2 of those games and drawing the rest.

Their home form has been inconsistent, they have won 3 of their last 6 home games, losing 2 and drawing the other.

Nice did a good job of putting a major doubt in PSG’s title ambition last week.

They have already qualified for the Champions League and will be hoping to continue their win over PSG with another victory over Marseille.

They are currently 3rd in the league table with 77 points from 35 games and they have won 4 of their last 6 games, drawing the other 2.

Away from home, they have not lost any of their last 6 games, winning 3 and drawing 3 on the road.

Bookmakers make Marseille favourites (1.95).
