    Marseille to beat Brest in a high-scoring encounter
    23/05/23 1782

    On Saturday night, Marseille hosts Brest at the Stade Velodrome in Ligue One as the home team looks to book an automatic Champions League spot for next season.


    OM head into the last two gameweeks third place in the French top-flight table, five points adrift of second-place Lens, who occupy the second automatic Champions League spot.

    Two defeats in their last three league games in the French top flight have hampered their chances of finishing as runners-up in the table and claiming a place in European football’s elite competition. Last time out in Ligue One, Marseille suffered a 2-1 defeat at Lille.

    OM have a strong recent home record in the French top flight, as they are unbeaten in five league games at the Stade Velodrome, having recorded three straight league wins on home soil.

    Marseille have been prolific of late at home in Ligue One, having suffered at least two goals in four of their previous five matches.


    The visitors are safe from relegation to Ligue 2, as they are nine points clear of the league’s bottom three. Eric Roy’s team have been in good form of late in the French top flight, as they have won three of their last four matches in Ligue One.

    A 2-1 home win over Clermont means they have won back-to-back league games.

    Brest has an inconsistent recent away record in the French top flight, as they have failed to win in four league matches on their travels.

    However, a 2-1 defeat at Lorient last time out on their travels ended a four-game unbeaten run away from home in Ligue One.

    What does Forebet predict?

    Forebet predicts that Marseille will win in a high-scoring encounter, which could keep their top-two hopes alive in Ligue One.
