Montpellier are in 8th place with 45 points and they have the chance to join Marseille on the same points with a win here. If they win big they could also go past their opponents.
Montpellier’s recent form has been decent as they have no defeats from their last 5 games but they have drawn 4 of those. That includes last weekend they when they drew their 9th game of the season against Angers.
At home Montpellier have won 7 but also lost the same amount of games. However form has changed for the better and they have gone their last 4 games at home without defeat. Their last home game ended in a 3-1 victory over Bordeaux.
Marseille are in 6th place and currently they are out of Europe altogether but they are just 1 point from their objective. Last weekend the club beat Dijon 2-0 and they have blown hot and cold this season but have won 3 of their last four games.
Away form has been poor for Marseille overall though and they have earned just 3 points from their last 15 and lost back to back games coming into this one on the road. Marseille’s last trip ended in a 3-0 defeat against Nice.

Montpellier vs Marseille: Prediction
When these two teams play each other we normally see a very entertaining game full of end to end attacks and we expect to see that again.
We can safely say that we have two teams who are very equal and both are going for the same goals this season and that is to qualify for the Europa League.
Presently Marseille are in the better position but they have been quite poor away from home and don’t normally get the best results at Montpellier. We expect goals but also we believe that the home side are very good value to win this game and could edge it.
