Marseille have to be one of the most player rich decorated sides with previous greats such as Fabien Barthez, Didier Drogba and Jean Pierre Papin, to have been rostered in previous squads. Marseille could have, arguably, had their time in the late 80’s winning domestic Ligue 1 titles 4 years on the bounce. This season, however, brings about fresh signings in 22 million euro man Gerson and Cengiz Under to bring creativity to the attacking play. Dimitri Payet is one of their most experienced and creative players; Marseille will be reliant on his form to keep them in domestic title challenges. Discipline will be critical to Marseille having a good season, centre back Gonzalez picked up the most yellow cards in Ligue 1 last season.
Olympique Marseille Tactics and Style to Play
Marseille play attacking football, usually in a 4-5-1 formation. Payet, although a front man, likes to drop into a false 9 role picking up the ball in deeper positions affecting the play with his clever movement. The wingers play high causing an overload on defences when the system works correctly. In this type of attacking formation it heavily relies on the wide players to track runners in defence and so overloads can quickly become weak points in a counter attack. Formation aside Marseille continue to be a goal scoring team, paradoxically, a conceding team also. Johan Cryuff, one of the greatest players of the game quoted: To win you have to score one more goal than your opponent. Simplicity is beautiful! Marseille need to stop leaking goals and continue scoring them as currently they could be considered top heavy.
Olympique Marseille to win the French Ligue 1 Odds & Prediction
The dominance of PSG in France Ligue 1 casts huge doubt over any other side winning the league in this season and probably many to come. Marseille will struggle to find the strength in depth to compete for a Ligue 1 title with a squad that is leaking goals season after season. Marseille’s realistic targets will be to compete for the top 3 positions and to chase a Champions League place next season that will improve the bank balance. It is not conceivable Marseille can compete for the Ligue 1 trophy this year, therefore, consolidation and growth will be of paramount importance. Any bets involving both teams scoring could be a good option for bettors. (Click to read our latest Ligue 1 betting tips and predictions for today and tomorrow).

Olympique Marseille odds & prediction to win Uefa Champions league 2021 – 2022
For a club that has won the Champions League one would expect that heritage to continue, at least in some competitive format. Marseille have been frequent attendees in the secondary European Cup since winning the Champions League in the 92-93 season. Despite their presence Marseille have not won the Europa League as yet, instead finishing runners up in three separate campaigns. The UEFA Europa League should be a target for Marseille this year if they are going to stop the decline from European recognition. (Read our latest Europa League Betting tips, odds, and predictions).
Olympique De Marseille FC: Coupe Du France PREDICTIONS & What to Expect
Despite Marseille having not won this trophy since 1989 they have won the Coupe De France 10 times, second only to the infamous PSG. Marseille have competed in the most finals of this tournament since its inception. History goes a long way in special tournaments and with the free flowing attacking side they field Marseille could be a consideration as an outside pick to take the trophy.
