Monaco vs Marseille Match Preview and Team News
Monaco seems to have hit form at just the right time as the hosts bring an impressive three-match winning streak into this clash with victories gained over Lorient 5-2 away, Angers 3-0 at home, and a 3-2 win on the road at Montpellier, which has maintained Monaco’s challenge for a top-five finish in Ligue 1. Indeed, Monaco has captured four wins from their last five matches overall, while results and form at home have been very consistent. Monaco has lost just once on home soil so far this season, and goals have also featured regularly too – nine of Monaco’s ten home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals being scored. Forwards, Volland (10 goals) and Ben Yedder (9 goals) will be keen to add to their respective goal-tallies here. Gelson Martins is an excellent player, many teams are interested in this guy, and he has good dribbles and is the future of Portuguese football. Kevin Volland finally shows his proper form and scores important goals. He creates a lot of problems for the opposing defenders.
Marseille stumbled to a third defeat on the trot in all competitions on Wednesday night when they slumped to a 1-0 defeat at home to Lens. That opened up a gap of four points between themselves and 5th placed Rennes, and things don’t get any easier with this upcoming visit against a resurgent Monaco outfit on Saturday. A previous 2-1 loss away at PSG in the Super Cup was followed by a 2-1 defeat home by second from the bottom club, Nimes. At the same time, the bigger picture paints a gloomy outlook for Andre Villas-Boas’s team as they’ve managed to collect just one win out of their last seven matches overall in the French top flight. However, Marseille had shown promising form on the road earlier in this campaign as the visitors put together a six-match unbeaten run, which included five wins, but they’ve since gone off the boil. Florian Thauvin is a great player, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Nemanja Radonjic goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and can be satisfied with his games.
