Marseille Prediction

Marseille are without a win in Ligue 1 from their last three matches as the hosts have drawn with Reims and Angers in 0-0 and 1-1 stalemates respectively, along with a 3-2 loss away at Nantes which has seen Marseille drop down to 7th place in the French top flight.

However, Marseille will be looking to take full advantage of Monaco’s current plight when they return to their home surroundings on Sunday, especially as they possess a solid record of 5-2-1 17/6 with their one defeat being to Ligue 1 leaders, PSG.

Recent wins over Strasbourg, Caen and Dijon along with 5 clean sheets from their 8 home matches to date make the hosts strong favourites to return to winning ways here. Midfielder Payet (4 goals) along with forwards Thauvin (11 goals) and Germain and Mitroglou (3 goals apiece) should ensure that the hosts make life difficult for Monaco.

Key-Facts – Marseille v Monaco

    • Marseille have lost at home just once this season
    • Marseille have kept 5 clean sheets from their 8 home matches to date
    • Monaco have lost three of their last four matches in Ligue 1

Monaco Prediction

Monaco will make their way to Marseille in reasonably confident mood having registered back-to-back wins against Canet Rousillon and Rennes in the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue respectively, but it’s back to Ligue 1 action this Sunday and another big test for the visitors.

In Ligue 1, Monaco have lost three of their last four matches overall which includes defeats to Montpellier, Lyon and Guingamp which has left the visitors still in the bottom three of the French top flight.

Monaco did have reason to believe things were looking up for the principality club away from home recently as they registered back-to-back wins on the road at Caen and Amiens, but then promptly returned to type last time out when they suffered a heavy 3-0 loss at Lyon.

Monaco’s away record stands at 3-1-5 9/12 and they’ve failed to score in 3 of their 9 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Marseille hold a pretty steady record at home while Monaco just can’t seem to string together a consistent sequence of results under manager Thierry Henry.
