Montpellier vs Marseille
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 4th November 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier)
The Stade de la Mosson is set to be full when Montpellier take on Marseille on Sunday evening in what should be a very exciting game.
There is more zip about this fixture than in previous years given that Montpellier are in 3rd place and could in theory go to 2nd if Lille lose by a few goals. Marseille are 3 points behind them and so a win here and Montpellier could put some good distance between the two teams.
The home side have lost just 1 game all season and are in solid form coming into this match having won their last two games and scoring 5 goals in the process.
Marseille did what they usually do and last weekend they lost against PSG at home. The score finished 2-0 and also finished any slight hopes of them challenging for the league this season. They are a whopping 14 points behind PSG.
Marseille have not been good away from home this season and have won 6 points from their overall 19 on the road. They did win their last away game which came against Nice in a 1-0 win.

Montpellier vs Marseille: Prediction
We have little doubts for our main bet which will be to see both teams to score. Both teams are full of goals and have the same level this season and history is with us for this market. Marseille are just not up to the task to win difficult away games and this is why we will back the home side who have a lot of good attitude and confidence in them to get the win at the weekend.
