Monaco vs Marseille: prediction for the Ligue 1 fixture
In the previous season Monaco put up a good performance, but failed to achieve a satisfying result. Though a spot in the Champions League is already a gift to the fans, because Royal Club didn't play in the group stage of the main European club tournament for a long time and won't play in this year as well.
Red-Whites got a difficult draw. After an easy start of qualification against Sparta Prague fans were getting ready for the group stage matches, but after a terrible performance in the tie against Shakhtar Royal Club will have to play in the Europa League.
In four rounds of the current Ligue 1 season Niko Kovac's team recorded one victory and one draw, which brought four points and a 14th spot in the standings. Monegasques recorded their first victory in the most recent match against Troyes (2:1).
Golovin, Sidibe and Volland won't be able to play in an upcoming match.
Marseille started the previous season great, but in the second half of the season they lost focus and finished at the fifth spot.
In March Jorge Sampaoli took over the team, he prepared team for the new season. During the summer team signed Gerson from Flamengo for 25 million euros, Arkadiusz Milik for 9 million euros and loaned Cengiz Under from Roma.
Team got off to a flying start of the new season. In three rounds Provencals recorded a victory over Montpellier (3:2), had a draw against Bordeaux (2:2) and in the most recent match beat Saint-Etienne (3:1).
Milik is down with a knee injury. Payet and Soberonare suspended.
In 4 out of 5 most recent head-to-head matches goals were scored in both halves
This bet won in 2 out of 3 most recent matches of Marseille
This bet won in 3 out of 5 most recent matches of Monaco
Marseille won in 2 out of 4 most recent head-to-head matches
Monaco failed the start of the season, so they are probably in a bad mood. In our opinion, visitors will pick up at least one point in this game. Provencals put up a great start of the season and almost all of their players are ready to play, which might be a key factor in a game against Monaco.
