Olympique Marseille will try to pass Paris Saint-Germain as the league’s top team when they play Clermont on day five of the new Ligue 1 season, buoyed by back-to-back victories over Nantes and Nice.
OM is aiming for their fourth victory of the campaign, and their performance in a 3-0 victory over Nice gives supporters hope for the arrival of Clermont.
Les Lanciers, on the other side, weren’t particularly outstanding in a 2-1 loss to Lorient, so we don’t think they can ruin OM’s celebration at Stade Velodrome.
Speaking of the visiting team, Elba Rashani and Mehdi Zeffane will not play due to head and hamstring injuries, respectively, while Neto Borges is suspended for the game.
Clermont trounced Marseille in their most recent encounter in the French top division, so the hosts are itching for retribution.
This game will take place on August 31, 2022, at 20:00.
Prediction: Home Win.
