Marseille vs RC Strasbourg Soccer Betting Tips

This Wednesday Olympique de Marseille will play its eighth final at home against the Racing Club of Strasbourg for one of the 4 confrontations between Ligue 1 teams during this round.

While Paris Saint-Germain (which will face Pau), Lille (which will play at Epinal), Montpellier (at Belfort) and Dijon (at Limonest) have in between been spared by the draw, the Phocaeans will face their first resident of the elite in this competition, after having painfully left Trélissac (National 2) and Granville (National 2) during the previous rounds. If in recent years, OM have regularly found it difficult to win in small, poorly maintained stadiums against less valuable opponents, it has generally gone much better at home, regardless of the opponent . Strasbourg, who had previously fallen from Angouleme and Le Portel, and a handsome winner of Monaco last weekend in the championship, can he seek his qualification at the Vélodrome?

Key stats for the match Marseille vs RC Strasbourg

OM have just come up against Angers at home in the league (0-0), but Marseille’s record at the Vélodrome is excellent: 7 victories, 3 draws, 1 single defeat at the start of the season.
Strasbourg has an almost reverse record outside: 3 wins, 1 draw and 7 defeats in 11 trips to Ligue 1 teams this season.
The RCS has not won at the Stade Vélodrome since 1997: 9 wins, 4 draws for 23 years.
If the Phocaeans will go to Bordeaux this weekend for one of the classics of the championship, Strasbourg will welcome Lille. The two teams will therefore be in an equivalent situation, with 2 decisive and complicated deadlines to negotiate in the championship.
Suspended against Angers, Payet, Kamara and Sarr will make their return for this round of 16.
While the Strasbourg have managed the feat of winning the Coupe de la Ligue last season, the Marseillais have been chasing a title since 2012 (victory in the Coupe de la Ligue), and after the Coupe de France since 1989.

Marseille vs RC Strasbourg Soccer Betting Tips

Strasbourg has considerably restored a situation that was badly started at the start of the season, but André Villas-Boas had expressed his disappointment following the Marseille elimination in Monaco in the League Cup and certainly nurtures the hope of going all the way in this Coupe de France, or at least to offer a final against PSG. OM will play this competition thoroughly and should pass this round at home!
