- Both teams have scored in each of the last nine meetings between Monaco and Marseille
- Both teams have scored in three of Monaco’s last four matches and four of Marseille’s last six outings
- Monaco have won their last three games while Marseille have lost their last three
Goals Expected as Monaco Play Host to Marseille
Monaco were involved in a five-goal thriller away at Montpellier last time out and returned with a 3-2 victory. Marseille had the home advantage against Lens in midweek but failed to make it count, slipping to a 1-0 defeat. Those results mean the gap between the two clubs have been increased to 4pts and while Monaco sit two places above their guests, Marseille still have one game in hand.
Recent meetings between these two clubs suggest that Saturday’s clash is likely to be action-packed. Each of the duo’s last nine meetings in all competitions have seen both teams score and three of the duo’s last five encounter sin Ligue 1 have produced over 3.5 goals. Three of Monaco’s last four matches have seen both teams score and over 3.5 goals, adding further weight to our expectation for goals on Saturday.
Monaco head into this weekend’s clash as the form favourites with four wins from their last six league games, while Marseille have lost four of their last six outings in all competitions. The visitors are struggling not the road right now having failed to win any of their last five away games.
We’re predicting that both teams will score this weekend but have backed Monaco to claim a 3-1 victory. As well as the home advantage, Monaco have form in their favour and have been scoring plenty of goals in recent weeks, while Marseille’s form has gone from bad to worse in recent weeks.
