Monaco vs Marseille prediction comes before the 5th French Ligue 1 round matchup. This game will be played on Sunday, September 15th, at the Stade Louis II in Monaco. In this match preview, we bring you useful betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two English teams.
Monaco vs Marseille Betting Tips
Despite having one of the most valuable squads not only in France but in the entire world, Monaco haven’t been that great lately. Actually, the previous season was a huge disaster for this team. In the finish of the season, they were in serious danger of getting relegated. Their fans are hopeful this team can do much better this time, but so far, they haven’t been too good. Actually, after four rounds of Ligue 1, there is only one team that’s collected fewer points than Monaco.
Monaco lost the first two matches they played this season, followed by two draws. The teams they lost to are Lyon and Metz, both who managed to score three goals against Monaco. And the teams Monaco drew with are Nimes and Strasbourg. It’s needless to say that they’re in desperate needs of points. And it’s not just for the sake of the table placement, it’s also to give their players the confidence for the rest of the season.
The problem is that getting points against Marseille will not be easy as this team is one of the strongest sides in the league. Despite starting the season with a defeat to Reims at home, Marseille did improve their form significantly. They played a draw with Nimes in the second round before winning two games in a row, namely against Nice and St Etienne.
Another thing that’s giving L’OM players confidence ahead of this game is that they have a pretty good history with Monaco. They are without a defeat to this opponent since 2017, when they got hammered 6:1. But, the squads of both of these teams have changed since and now Marseille look like the stronger of the two.
But, will they be able to get all three points from their trip to Monaco? They do seem like the favorites to win the game, but even if they fail to do so, they probably won’t lose it. In the worst-case scenario, Marseille are going to go home taking one point with them.
