Today we are going to present to you the opening match of Round 28 of the French Ligue 1 between the teams of Marseille and Amiens. The venue is the home ground of Marseille Stade Velodrome. The official start of the game is set at 20:00 GMT 0.
The team of Marseille
The team of Marseille is placed 2nd with a comfortable lead of 8 points above the 3rd placed Rennes. It seems that Marseille will play Champions League football next season. Their form as hosts is consistent, although they were badly defeated by Nantes 2-3 in the recent days. We are sure that the hosts will take this game seriously and will compensate their fanatic fans for the unpleasant result against Nantes. Radonjic and Sakai are unavailable for the upcoming game against Amiens.
What to expect from Amiens
Amiens lies on the bottom of the table (19th place) and a miracle is needed if they want to skip the relegation this season. The team has failed to win a single match since the beginning of November 2019, so it is almost 5 months without a win. Amiens should change a lot of aspects of their performance in case they want to keep their elite status in Ligue 1. We would stay doubtful whether this is going to happen.
Marseille’s 2nd placed may not seem in danger for the time being but the team is obliged to take 3 points from the so-called “easy matches”. We expect a firm, boosting win that is going to bring the confidence back within the boys of Villas-Boas.
