Match Preview

Caen welcome Marseille in this Ligue 1 (L1) clash, with the hosts having lost all but one of their last five home league fixtures (W1, L4), while opponents Marseille have claimed only one win from their last eight competitive road trips (W1, D1, L6).
The home team come into this encounter after a 3-1 home loss to high-flying Lille last matchday – their first home loss by a two-goal margin this L1 campaign. However, Fabien Mercadal’s side have won just two of their last 14 home league fixtures (W2, D6, L6) and have conceded the opening goal in four of the last five.
The visitors travel here on the back of a dreadful run of nine-straight competitive games without a single win (D4, L5), while their 2-1 away loss at St Etienne in midweek made it five consecutive league matches without victory (D3, L2).
‘Les Olympiens’ have the division’s worst away defensive record after conceding 22 goals (2.2 on average per match), whilst the fact Marseille have registered just one clean sheet in their last 17 L1 away fixtures will be of concern to coach Rudi Garcia.
One consolation for Marseille is that they have won the last six league H2Hs against Caen (all venues), scoring the opening goal on each occasion!
Players to watch: Enzo Crivelli is Caen’s top scorer with four L1 goals, but just one was scored on home soil. Florian Thauvin (Marseille), meanwhile, has 11 league goals and has found the net in each of the last four H2H meetings, for a total of seven goals!
Stat attack: The hosts are L1’s draw specialists, registering nine in their 20 games to date this season – alongside Reims.
Both sides have scored in Marseille’s last four away league fixtures.
Four of Caen’s eleven home goals this campaign have been scored via the penalty spot – a league high.
