Looking ahead to a potential football pick that we can make value of profit even before the game kicks off.

France Ligue 1
Marseille to beat Caen @ 2.05 (Betfair) – 3.5 points

Marseille have been in absolutely cracking form ever since Bielsa has taken over this team. They have won 6 out of the 8 games they have played, and have looked absolutely fun to watch with their exciting brand of attacking football. They have scored 21 goals in their games so far; and been led ably well by the likes of Gignac, Ayew and Payet. Gignac has been in particularly good form netting 8 goals in 8 games; and has been extremely instrumental in their early season success.

They have also been good on the defensive end. After conceding 5 goals in their opening 2 games; they have only conceded 2 goals in the next 6. With young defenders N’Koulou, Djédjé and Mendy along with the veteran Morel and keeper Mandanda they have ensure to develop a good partnership to keep the goals tight.

Caen on the other hand have not enjoyed a good start to the season. They have not won any of their last 5 games, and its difficult to see how they are going to find goals, as they are the 3rd lowest scorer jutst above Monaco. They have infact lost all of their 3 home games so far, and with Marseille coming in with some good form, you don’t know if they will be able to stop them.

Marseille should win this one to try and put some distance between them and the chasing back of Lille, Monaco and PSG.
