Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Strasbourg and Olympique Marseille face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Stade de la Meinau on day 10 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. Le Racing aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Reims, but they will have to do it without Lienard, Mothiba, Saadi, and Sels, who remain in the recovery room. Ivory Coast international Aholou is rated doubtful after he was tested positive for coronavirus.
OM, on the other hand, were not in action at the weekend as their game against Lens was postponed. Olympique Marseille aim to build on back-to-back wins over Bordeaux and Lorient, but beating Strasbourg on the road is easier said than done. Considering that the visitors head into the match following the Champions League clash with Porto, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Centre-back Alvaro Gonzalez is banned for the visitors.
