Four games without a win has dragged Strasbourg down into midtable and it’s looking like that’s where they will end this season. Can this game change anything? Here are our top Strasbourg v Marseille betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
The hosts are far enough away from the danger zone that they don’t have to worry but won’t be causing those in the major places to glance over their shoulder either. They will leapfrog Nimes into ninth with a win on Friday night, at least overnight, and that will be the plan in the home dressing room as they prepare for this 7.45pm kick-off.
Strasbourg haven’t been winning too many matches of late, but they haven’t suffered many defeats either, meaning there’s still confidence in the camp as they roll to a finish. The locals set-up having drawn three and lost one of their last five, including a level finish last time out. We imagine, with nothing to play for, they’d see the value in another point and that’s the danger when approaching this match. Back the draw at 13/5 with William Hill, more likely than the Strasbourg cheer at 3/1 when playing at Bet365.
Pushing for the Prizes
Marseille make this trip on the edge of the European spots, but they still have time on their side and will fancy their chances of breaking into the top-four, or at least holding their ground and finishing inside the best half-dozen in the league. They travel with season stats showing 16 wins, six draws and 12 defeats, gifting them 54 points, five behind Saint-Etienne in fourth. The chance to cut that down to two points on Friday will be their motivation and it’ll also see a sizeable crowd follow the team into this match.
The visitors looked to be hitting form entering the closing weeks of the season, but they were denied a hat-trick when following back-to-back wins with a defeat in their most recent start. Nantes nicked a 2-1 victory that night in what was a painfully close contest and fans will want to see the players bounce back at the first time of asking, getting their campaign back on track.

The visitors are the form side of the two and have a point to prove after last week’s defeat.
