Montpellier vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 14th March 2020
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier’s form has taken a nosedive in recent weeks and they come into this game having lost 3 of their last four. Last weekend was a big blow for the club losing 5-0 to Rennes and they have slipped down to 8th place.
The club will want to get back to winning ways but Marseille will be a very difficult opponent for them. However Montpellier’s home form is why they are in the top half of the table as they have won 10 from 14 games.
Marseille dropped another two points last Friday as they could only draw 2-2 with Amiens at home and they were leading that game. They are now 12 points behind PSG but also have played a game more. The real threat is Rennes who have closed the gap on 2nd to six points.
Marseille has the 2nd best away record in the league winning 28 points from a possible 42 and have won their last three away games. They have beaten quality teams too such as Lille and scored 7 goals in those games.
Montpellier vs Marseille: Head to Head
- Last season Montpellier ran out 3-0 winners.
- Marseille haven’t won here in the league since 2016.
- From the last 4 meetings 3 have ended with both teams not to score.
Montpellier vs Marseille: Prediction
We expect to see a fast paced game and Montpellier will be strong, Marseille might be wondering still how they didn’t win the game at home to Amiens and could have done with an easier fixture than this.
This is a very close call though because Marseille have been brilliant away from home lately so we are going to concentrate on the goals market for this game, there is plenty of talent on the pitch to change the game and score goals and that could be very good value to us.
