Hosts are approaching a challenging match against one of the Ligue 1 leaders. Clermont got off to a great start, but team is still too weak to fight for a mid-table position. Marseille also had a good start and in case of a victory team can rise to the second spot.
We think that visitors will record a victory due to their higher class.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) on Marseille
We think that goal-scoring drought will end today. Marseille have a great offensive potential, while hosts' defensive line is far from perfect.
Our second bet - Marseille: total over 1,5 goals
