Monaco vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 23rd January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
This fixture always has a lot to grab the attention and this one should be no different. Monaco will be the favourites and haven’t given up on a surprise idea of winning the league.
Currently Monaco are in 4th place with 36 points and are six behind the leaders PSG before they play on Friday evening. Monaco have no defeats in their last five games and have in fact won their last 3 in a row.
Monaco were involved in a five goal thriller last time out by beating Montpellier 3-2 and there are goals in this side and a lot of confidence.
The same cannot be said of Marseille who in midweek lost their game in hand at home against Lens losing that match 1-0. It was an extremely disappointing result for the club who have just 1 win in their last five matches.
Marseille are 4 points behind their hosts and their title dreams are a distant hope, lose at the weekend and it would be agreed that their title hopes are over for this season.
Monaco vs Marseille: Head to Head
- Last season this game finished in a 7 goal thriller as Marseille won the fixture 4-3.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse game Marseille beat Monaco 2-1.
- It’s been 6 league games since Monaco have beaten Marseille.
- Both teams to score has happened every time in the last 7 league meetings.
Monaco vs Marseille: Prediction
Monaco are the better team going into this match but they have struggled against Marseille recently even when they have been at home.
There needs to be serious question marks held against Marseille who needed to win their game in hand against Lens and it just seems when you look at how Marseille have been playing impossible to not back Monaco for the win here.
Kevin Volland has been in great form lately for Monaco and scoring goals and we will also back him to get on the score sheet.
