The pandemic is currently drawing huge circles in French football. More and more players are infected and the clubs are pushing to cancel the matches. However, there are clear regulations. Of a 30-man roster that had to be announced ahead of the season, eleven players would have to be absent with an infection to have a game rescheduled. Bordeaux has some players in the Africa Cup and regular injuries in addition to the infected players. That is obviously not enough for Ligue 1 to cancel Friday's duel against Olympique Marseille. Despite an urgent request from the the home side, the game is to be played on Friday at 9:00 p.m. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether this is okay or whether the idea of competition is not put aside. In the table, things are already looking bad for Vladimir Petkovic's team. With 17 points it is just enough to get a place above the relegation ranks. It is only one point to the red zone.


Bordeaux - statistics & current form

There is a lot of discussion in France ahead of this match. Should the game take place, they will not allow spectators. The fans want to come anyway to protest in front of the stadium, probably not entirely non-violently. Bordeaux legend Gernot Rohr finds it simply unfair when Bordeaux has to play under these conditions.

It's not going well for Vladimir Petkovic's team anyway. The relegation zone is threateningly close and in view of the current developments there are not a few indications that there will be the third defeat in a row on Friday. 

Bordeaux already had great personal concerns last weekend, but still played in the Coupe de France at Stade Brest. In the end it was a clear 0: 3. In the current constitution with the thin squad, Bordeaux is simply not competitive and it is to be feared that there will be another hard loss on Friday.

It is difficult to say who will be available to Vladimir Petkovic on Friday. The only thing that is certain is that nine infected players are apparently not enough for a cancellation. In addition, with Paul Baysse and Jimmy Briand, there are also injured players in the squad and Jean Onana and Gideon Mensah are with their national teams to prepare for the Africa Cup.

Marseille - statistics & current form

We can imagine that the Olympique Marseille players will also go into this game on Friday with very mixed feelings. Currently, the team has been spared a major outbreak and that should also be a reason why Jorge Sampaoli's team is performing so well this season.

OM in good shape

OM has not lost for five games and won four of them, but also two in the Coupe de France against lower-class teams. The form curve is clearly pointing upwards and that is more than an indication that in the match between Bordeaux and Marseille, perhaps even considering the odds of a handicap win for the guests.

Last weekend, Marseille didn't have to stretch too much when they visited Chauvigny from the National 3 in the cup. At the break, Arkadiusz Milik and Cengiz Ünder had already made sure that there were no more surprises in the air. After the change, the former Schalke Amine Harit scored the goal to make it 3-0.

This makes Harit a possible candidate who could rotate into the starting XI on Friday. However, we assume that Jorge Sampaoli will hardly make any changes to his starting XI. The coach has to do without the two infected Oussama Targhalline and Konrad de la Fuente. Valentin Rongier is injured and the two Senegalese Bamba Dieng and Papa Gueye are with their national team.

My tip:

Marseille is already a much better team and with the corona crisis in Bordeaux I think this game will be even easier for the away side. My bet will be Marseille -0.75
