Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Nantes and Nice, Olympique Marseille will look to overtake PSG in top position when they face Clermont on day 5 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. OM are eyeing their fourth win of the process, and their display in a 3-0 win over Nice is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Clermont.
Les Lanciers, on the other hand, were anything but impressive in a 2-1 loss to Lorient; therefore, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling OM’s party at Stade Velodrome. Speaking of the visiting side, Neto Borges is banned for the match, while both Elba Rashani and Mehdi Zeffane miss out with a head and a hamstring problem respectively. In their last meeting in the French top flight Clermont defeated Marseille, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
