Bordeaux vs Marseille Match Preview

MARSEILLE must feel this is the season when they will finally end their 42-year wait for a victory away to Bordeaux.

But currently, there is a big contrast between the form of the two clubs because Les Girondins are struggling, with their only success in their last 11 games being a narrow one at home to Toulouse.

The catalyst has been the form of mercurial striker Mario Balotelli, who only made his debut for Marseille in late January after joining from Nice but has scored seven goals in his nine appearances so far.

  Prediction: Handicap (0:2) 2
