Marseille visits Angers on an intersectional day of Ligue 1.
I want to go with the baggy victory of the Marseilles.
Let’s comment a bit.
One of the teams that best interprets the concept of defensive strength.
However, for me it is very lacking in offensive resources.
Although Stéphane Moulin is a great coach, I think he has no way of standing before the greats.
One of the things that encourages me to share this pick is its defense.
Strength, but in quotes.
The calendar has been benevolent with Angers, because it came from a positive mini streak (1-0 to Strasbourg, 0-0 in Reims and 1-0 to Nimes), but then Nice gave them a reality bath beating 3-1.
And look that Nice does not go through its best moments in the season.
His defense has 2 central spikes (Roman and Pavlovic) and slow, and 2 laterals that are very offensive, but do not score much. Especially Abdoulaye Bamba, right-sided Ivorian, who knows how to attack and much but in the recoil becomes coarse. Right by the band where Payet attacks.
4 victories in a row, solving matches against rivals that close, as will happen on this occasion too.
Álvaro González returns to the central saga after serving the penalty, so again the defense would be formed by Sakai, Kamara, González and Amavi, a zero-arc guarantee if we add the always serious Steve Mandanda.
In attack the trident of Payet (best player in the league so far this season), Benedetto and Bouna Sarr on the right.
Payet constantly facing Bamba seems like a feast for the steering wheel 10.
Benedetto, short and powerful, stinging between the centrals (slow and tall) seems to me at least a couple of “hand in hand”.
Marseille has proven to resolve matches against rivals that are locked behind (0-2 to Toulouse and 2-1 to Brest in its last two matches).
In addition, with the return of Gonzalez should leave his arc at zero.
Benedetto comes sweet in the face of goal, and Payet comes forward with goals, after what happened the other day against Brest where he made direct free throws spectacularly, and the crossbar returned them at least a couple of times.
Marseille will win. But because of the way they come playing I don’t think they win 0-1. At least 2 goals will score.
