Marseille vs Panathinaikos: Top Free Betting Tips
Marseille and Panathinaikos go up against each other in the second leg of the third round of Champions League Qualifiers. Both teams will be entering Stade Velodrome on Tuesday, 15 August. The Shamrock had a dominant performance in the first leg against Marseille and confirmed a 0-1 advantage.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
The first leg between these teams in UCL Qualifiers finished with Under 2.5 Goals. However, Marseille have been through consecutive high-scoring totals at Stade Velodrome and scored 11 goals in the last five home league outings. The Olympians allowed six goals at the back in that duration. On the other hand, Panathinaikos have also scored an average of two goals per game in the previous three matches in UCL Qualifiers. Therefore, we predict a total of Over 2.5 Goals for this encounter.
Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes
Marseille would be confident to rattle the net in the home leg against Marseille. The Olympians have been on the scoring side in each of the previous five league outings at Stade Velodrome. But the French side couldn’t keep a single clean sheet in that duration. Panathinaikos have also scored in four of the last five competitive fixtures. Defensively, the Shamrock have also claimed just one clean sheet during the aforestated period. Hence, we predict a BTTS outcome for this game, a contrast to the teams’ previous meetings.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Marseille
Marseille have been prolific in front of the target at Stade Velodrome and scored at least twice in four of the previous five home games in Ligue 1. On the other hand, Panathinaikos have notched more than one goal in only one of the last five competitive fixtures. Additionally, Marseille have also clipped the opposition to only one goal in four of the last five league outings at Stade Velodrome. Given these statistics, we predict a 2-1 margin for Marseille at the end of the ninety minutes of this game.
