Marseille vs Montpellier French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Marseille vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 6th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).

Marseille and Montpellier always make for good matches and this one in midweek should be no different.

Marseille come into this game in 5th place and they have failed to win their last 3 games which has seen the club drop off the pace. They have slipped 8 points behind the league leaders Lyon.

However not all is lost for Marseille who have played 2 games less than Lyon, win those and they would be just 2 points behind them, so there is so much still to play for but they will need to get back to winning ways.

Marseille lost their last game 2-1 against Angers and at home their last match ended 1-1 v Reims who have struggled this season. Overall Marseille’s home form is good without being great and while the club have lost just once they have won 3 from seven and one would expect a better record at home if they want to be challenging for the title.

Montpellier like Marseille have lost form and they also have no wins in their last 3 games. Their last match ended in a 3-2 loss to Lille but a win could see the club move past Marseille and move up 2-3 places also.

Marseille vs Montpellier Head to Head

  • The last time the club met in the league this match finished 1-1.
  • Montpellier haven’t won at Marseille in the league since 2014.
  • 4 of the last 5 league meetings has seen under 2.5 goals.

Marseille vs Montpellier Prediction

Both clubs still have a chance of the title but Marseille are more in the driving seat because of there games in hand.

The worry for the home side is that their form is not good, but neither is Montpellier’s and they do not have a great record coming to Stade Velodrome. Because of this we are tempted to side with the home team who are also decent value.

Also worth a pick is Dario Benedetto to score anytime, he has shown some good form a few weeks ago and it is possible with the new year he will be able to kick start that form again from home.

Marseille vs Montpellier Bet Tips:

  • Marseille to beat Montpellier at 2.00 (1/1)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Dario Benedetto of Marseille at 2.25 (5/4).
