Monaco travel to Marseille for their Ligue 1 Matchday 20 clash at Velodrome in great form hoping they can snatch the points on this difficult away day and keep up with Nice.
Monaco return to Ligue 1 campaign as they travel to Marseille for their Matchday 20 clash following the Coupe de France win over Ajaccio (2-1 last week) and the thriller win at Sochaux (3-4 on penalties) in Coupe de la Ligue earlier this week. Les Rouges et Blancs now hope to continue their streak on a difficult away day at Stade Velodrome, but Marseille will be a difficult obstacle as they try to catch up with the top 4 themselves!
Olympique Marseille have a fine series of their own as they come into the match on the back of three consecutive wins and a Coupe de France success at Toulouse (1-2 win in extra time) last week. They have been invincible at home this term with six wins and three draws in the nine matches played, earning 21 of their 30 points total at Velodrome. We now don’t feel that Monaco will be able to snatch the three points here and they’ll have to leave satisfied with a point as we back a draw at 9/4 with William Hill
The visitors haven’t been as convincing on the road throughout the season, as they’ve dropped points at Dijon (1-1 draw), Saint-Etienne (1-1 draw), as well as Toulouse (3-1 loss) and Nice (thrashing 4-0 loss).Leonardo Jardim’s side have picked up their form with two away wins but a convincing loss at Leverkusen earlier in December has shown all that is wrong. Nevertheless, with an in-form attacking line netting 13 goals in five matches over the past month, we do expect them to find the net and both teams to score comes at 8/13 with BetVictor
A 2-2 draw correct score prediction can now be backed at a good-looking 10/1 with bet365
and could be more than just a lively longshot. Both sides have been in fine goalscoring forms and we could be in for an exciting match, as we’ve seen three or more goals in all of their last four head-to-head encounters and their last matchup at Velodrome ended in a 3-3 draw to share the spoils.
Radamel Falcao will be our top pick in the goalscoring market, as he’s shown some of his well-remembered class bagging seven goals in his last six appearances. Having 11 goals to his name this term, Falcao can now be backed to score anytime at 11/10 with Ladbrokes
Both teams to score Yes at 8/13 with BetVictor
