Marseille vs Montpellier Match Preview
Marseille host Montpellier for their Matchday 6 clash on Saturday afternoon in great shape and on the back of a three-match winning streak, where they beat Nice (1-2), St Etienne (1-0), and Monaco (3-4) as the attacking line led by in-form Dario Benedetto finally started scoring goals on the regular.
Indeed, Benedetto netted four goals on those three occasions and Les Phoceens will have high hopes they can build on such performances up front, even without possibly their biggest start Florian Thauvin – who is bound to be sidelined with ankle ligaments problems until January.
Montpellier have struggled for such consistency lately but we’ve seen them prove themselves as a very tough nut to crack. They’ve beaten Nice (2-1) in front of the home fans last week and bagged their second win in five outings, which will still be a great confidence booster despite struggles for pick-me-ups on the road.
La Paillade have thus snatched just a point at Bordeaux (1-1) and saw a 1-0 loss in Nantes on their two trips so far, which will be worrying. With a lot to prove in Marseille, it feels the visitors could feel the pressure mounting and we don’t really see them able to cause an upset and snatch any points on the day either.
We should be in for an exciting game, though, and both sides’ recent records point towards such a claim as well. We’ll still back Marseille to turn it their way and back a Home win at Evens with Coral, which caught the eye of many as great value already.
We feel Montpellier will be no easy rivals to beat and we’re now also hoping to see them make it on the scoresheet. With hope Marseille will outgun them and bag all three points, we’re now also going for a high-scoring occasion and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with Ladbrokes.
