Marseille – Nice betting tip, prediction & odds 24.04.2024

Ligue 1, Wednesday, 24.04.2024

Wednesday evening sees the clash between Marseille and Nice in Ligue 1. While Olympique have had a season to forget and have little chance of finishing in the European places, Nice still want to secure a Champions League qualification place.

However, the southern French derby is also about prestige. I expect both teams to play for victory and we’ll see an entertaining game in which there should definitely be a few goals. D

herefore, in my Marseille Nice I’m going for the goal for both teams. Strong odds are waiting at Betway

Instead of fighting for the top spots or even the championship, Marseille were miles away from that this season. Just 40 points came out of the first 29 match days, ninth place, six points off even the Conference League places.

Their own ambition is to be in the top flight. But there is still one option to achieve this: triumph in the Europa League. The only competition in which Marseille have been able to provide highlights

After failing to qualify for the Champions League, the squad easily made it through the group stage, only having to concede top spot to Brighton. This was followed by victories against Donetsk, Villarreal and Benfica Lisbon.

Atalanta is now the last hurdle before a possible final against the high-flyers from Leverkusen or Rome. First of all, the aim is to boost spirits in the southern French derby. The hosts go into the match with good prospects, as Marseille have only lost one game at home and are in third place in the home table

The away performances, on the other hand, have been disastrous. There were only two wins from 15 matches, no Ligue 1 team collected fewer points. Marseille also lost out in the first leg, losing 1-0.

Scoring a goal in the second half of the season is likely to be anything but a walk in the park. After all, Nice are the best defense in the league and Olympique are also behind in terms of form, having collected just one point from their last four games.

The double burden of the Europa League is definitely noticeable in the team. They are also missing a number of players at the back, including Jonathan Clauss, Quentin Merlin and captain Valentin Rongier.

Despite the fact that they have only one home defeat to their name, the top betting providers are therefore cautious with regard to the 1X2 odds. Marseille are only just ahead of Nice at 2.25 (3.10), while the draw bet (3.40) is slightly higher.

In a derby, however, I primarily look at other markets because, as we know, a lot is possible in terms of the outcome in these top games! A goal from both teams at 1.77, which can also be found in the Betway app, is much more attractive for me.

Marseille don’t want to lose their home game against Nice, will definitely go for the three points and play boldly going forward. Especially as the hosts can play freely due to their already completely messed-up league season.

And Nice? Admittedly anything but an offensive power with twelve goals from 14 away games, but the Eagles are sure-footed in the derby, with the OGC fan camp celebrating at least once in eight of the last nine encounters

Marseille have been waiting for a win against Nice since 2022. In addition to the first leg of this season, they also lost 3-1 to their rivals in their last home game. It is the first derby for Olympique head coach Jean-Louis Gasset.

He has only been in charge since February and is now the fourth coach this season, having started the season with Marcelinho, while Italian icon Gennaro Gattuso has coached the team in the meantime

However, the new change failed to have a major impact. Gasset’s scoring average stands at 1.46 after 13 matches, the exact same as Gattuso was released after 24 games. Will the Frenchman be able to surpass him again with a win on Wednesday?

The good thing is that the Marseille victory can be gambled on risk-free after making a deposit. Betway new customers receive the stake on their first bet back in the form of a free bet of up to 100 euros if they lose a betting slip. The prerequisite for this offer is at least three odds as a combination variant:

Conclusion: In league terms, Marseille’s season is de facto over. A win against Nice would theoretically mean a more lucrative European place, but that is very unrealistic. After all, only the high-flyers from PSG managed an away win at the Stade Velodrome.

I expect both teams to play for victory in the southern French derby. It’s not just a battle for points and places, but also for prestige. Marseille have been on target at home so far, just like Nice in recent matches.

Therefore, my Marseille-Nice betting tip is: Both teams to score
