Having both made solid starts to the Ligue 1 season, our tipster expects this game at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to be packed with goalmouth action

Lille were on the wrong end of a 1-0 defeat in their last outing at Bordeaux but on home soil they've been a different proposition of late.

Each of their last five league matches at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy have ended in victory, a run stretching back to the end of April. 888Sport make them outsiders at 9/5 (2.80) for this game though.

Marseille meanwhile, have lost two of their three away matches in Ligue 1 this term, although their one win did come against a Monaco side that have looked a shadow of their former selves. The visitors are 11/8 (2.38) to come out on top here. The draw is 27/11 (3.45) with the same firm.

Better value can be found away from the match odds market. Goals in particular look attractive given the recent results of Marseille combined with a strong showing from the hosts to kick-off the campaign.

Both teams to score has paid out in each of the visitors' last eight away league games and it's just 5/9 (1.56) to do so once more.

High-scoring clashes have been the main feature of Marseille matches recently, whether playing at home or on the road. In seven Ligue 1 games this season they've seen 32 goals, an average of 4.57 per match and each of them has seen the over 3.5 goals market settled as a winner.

While the away team look the more power-packed, Lille are well capable of contributing to the tally given their flawless start to the campaign on home soil. Their three outings at this venue so far have contained 10 goals.

888Sport are an industry-best price of 24/13 (2.85) about four or more goals in this game and that looks well worth backing given it's landed in every Marseille league fixture this season.
