Low-scoring matches have been a feature for both of these two sides.
Marseille v SM Caen - Sunday 16:00, BT Sport 3
Marseille’s five game unbeaten streak came to an end away to Montpellier before the internationals as they lost 3-1, leaving them just one point better off than 15th placed Caen. They conceded early and entered half-time two goals down, and never really looked like getting back into the games as they conceded within five minutes of pulling one back.
Caen ended a run of three consecutive losses last time out by winning narrowly at home against high-flying Nice, and will be hopeful of securing another good result here. In their last four encounters against Marseille they’re W2-D1-L1 and both these victories came at the Stade Velodrome. However, their current away form leaves a lot to be desired: five defeats in six winless matches, failing to score in four of these games.
Indeed, low-scoring matches have been a feature for both of these sides. There have been fewer than three goals in four of Marseille’s last five and less than two strikes in three of the last four. Caen meanwhile, have seen no more than one goal in half of their last six. We like the look of under 1.5 goals at 3.88 and wouldn’t want to put anyone off backing this, but we especially like the half-time draw at 2.3. Marseille have been level after 45 minutes in seven of their last nine, as have Caen in four of their last six, and with a low-scoring game expected this makes sense.
