Monaco vs Olympique Marseille Betting Preview

Monaco enters the derby of southern France in a great form. Last week they played pretty weird game and celebrated 3:2 away at Montpellier.

Monaco had three goals in that game, but they allowed two in the range of five minutes, and in the end, they squeezed a victory.

They took all three points and it is all that matters. It was the fourth win in the last five home games.

In that period, they took 13 out of a possible 15 points. With this successful run, Monaco climbed to fourth place and is six points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain and Lille.

What needs to be emphasized is the Monaco attack which is one of the most effective in the league. However, the defense is quite hollow and that is the biggest problem of the home team at the moment.

Coach Niko Kovač has no major problems with absences except for the injured Cesc Fabregas.

Unlike Monaco, the guests are in desperate shape. Earlier in the season they played very well in the league, even fighting for the top spot, but as time goes on they get worse and worse. In the last week, Marseille have recorded two home defeats, not against top teams.

For the weekend, they managed to lose to the last-placed Nimes (1:2), and then Lens beat them during the week.

Not that Marseille is no longer talked about as a candidate for the title, but it will be difficult for them even to qualify for the European League.

Andres Villas-Boas cannot count on defenders Jordan Amavi and Boubacar Kamara, and midfielder Valentin Rongier. All three are absent due to injuries.

Monaco is on the rise, while guests are on the decline. For this reason, a bet is a good option here. However, I go with the bet on over.

Monaco has scored 13 goals in the last four games, and the defense is not its strong point. I think that’s why we could easily see more than 2.5 goals here.
