Marseille receives Nice on Wednesday (9 pm) in a late match for the 11th day of Ligue 1. Here is all you need to know about this meeting.

Marseille is still trying to get its head out of the water, after its sad draw in Bordeaux (0-0), admittedly obtained at 9 against 11. The Phocaeans are only ninth in Ligue 1 but are counting on their two games behind for catch up with the top 5 teams. For its part, Nice came close to pulling off a nice shot in Paris and showing progress. The Aiglons want to get closer to the first part of the painting.

Stats to know (with Opta)

Marseille remains on 6 wins against Nice in Ligue 1, the best series in its history against the Aiglons in the top flight and its best current series against a current L1 club. OM is also the team that has beaten the OGCN the most in Ligue 1 (55 times).

Marseille lost 2 of his last 6 receptions in Nice in Ligue 1 (4 wins), as many as in his previous 29 (24 wins, 3 draws). OM shows 37 victories on its lands against the Aiglons in the elite, it does better than against Metz (39) and St Etienne (41).

Marseille did not win none of his last 7 Ligue 1 matches (3 draws, 4 defeats), only Dijon (8) is on a worse series. This is the longest streak without a win for OM in the top flight since February-April 2016 (11).

Nice has 29 points after 24 Ligue 1 matches this season, its lowest total at this stage since 2011/12 (20 – 13th at the end of the season).

Marseille lost his last 3 receptions in Ligue 1, only Nîmes (8) is on a longer series on its land currently. The Olympians can, in case of defeat, equal their longest streak of its kind in their history in the elite (4 also between September and November 1957 then between April and July 2005).

Nice lost each of his last 2 trips to Ligue 1 (1-2 v Monaco and 1-2 v Paris), that is to say as much as in his previous 15 (6 wins, 7 draws).

Marseille only tried 221 shots after 23 matches in Ligue 1 2020/21 is less at this stage than in any other season for the Olympian club since Opta analyzed the competition (2006/07). For comparison, it had 317 shots at this time in 2019/20.

Marseille cashed at least one goal in each of their last 13 matches at home in Ligue 1, worst series in progress (tied with Montpellier). This is OM’s longest streak in the elite since January-September 2005 (also 13), but the club has not had 14 consecutive receptions without a clean sheet in L1 since May 1959-February 1963 (14 ).

Valentin Rongier made 102 tackles in Ligue 1 since his debut with Marseille on September 15, 2019, only Aaron Wan-Bissaka (106) has done better in the 5 major championships over the period.

Walter Benitez has directed 86 saves in Ligue 1 this season, best total. However, he only posted 71.8% of shots saved with Nice in the top flight in 2020/21, his 2nd lowest percentage in an L1 exercise (after 2017/18, 68.7%).
