Monaco vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 11 September 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
Both Monaco and Marseille are among the best teams in the French top flight, and had finished in the top-five of the table the last season. Goals have always come in plenty whenever these two have locked horns, and the same could be expected this weekend at the Stade Louis II.
Monaco had finished third in the table in 2020-21, and were the final team to qualify for the Champions League.
Through the campaign, they were unbeaten in 30 of their 38 fixtures, and had scored a total of 76 goals in the process. Do also note that they were trailing just five points below champions Lille as well.
In the meantime, Marseille had finished fifth, and were the last team to secure a ticket to the Europa League. They were unbeaten in 28 of their total 38 match-ups, and impressively have continued their good form this season as well.
They are unbeaten so far this season, and apart from PSG, only two other squads have scored more than them in 2021-22.
By the looks of things, expect a goal-fest this Saturday between the two teams.
Monaco vs Marseille: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last ten straight encounters had goals from both teams.

Monaco vs Marseille Prediction
Monaco had recorded a 1-2 win the last match-day on the road, against Troyes. In the meantime, Marseille registered a 3-1 win against St. Etienne.
Going on, Monaco have failed to score just six times at home in the past nine-month period, and they have scored heavily in h2h meetings over the years – particularly at this stadium.
On the other hand, their opposite number had scored two or more goals in eight of their past ten match-ups, and they had found the back of the net at least once in 23 of their past 26 fixtures.
Moreover, the last they failed to find the back of the net on the road was back in February.
Taking all these observations into account, expect a high-scoring affair this Saturday.
