Stade Louis II
AS Monaco and Olympique Marseille are expected to pick themselves up and contend for 3 points after both sides fell to a defeat in their last match. Monaco lost against Nice at home by a single goal, while Marseille got battered by PSG 4-0 at home.
Both clubs have been in good form prior to their defeats and there is no doubt that each side will learn from that defeat and push to bounce back.Grab Your Signup Bonus
AS Monaco will be aiming for a different result from their last game. They were fantastic throughout the game, but they failed to convert chances into goals and were punished for it. Folarin Balogun had a sour game as he lost 2 spot kicks in both halves, keeping the game scoreless until the 91st minute when Jeremie Boga gave Nice the winning goal.
Monaco have now lost 1, won 3 and drawn 2 of their opening 6 games in the Ligue 1. The defeat to Nice was hard to take but there's every indication that they can get back to winning ways when Marseille comes to visit.
Monaco and Marseille met at the Stade Louis II back in 2022, when they both played a 3-2 score in favor of Marseille. But with the recent defeat of the visitors, Monaco might have a lifeline here.
Monaco are 4th with 11 points from the first 6 games.
- More than 2.5 Goals in 6/7 games.
- Less than 4.5 cards in 9/10 games.
- Less than 10.5 corners in 5/7 games.
Marseille were set to prove their title credentials when they faced PSG in their last match. But that didn't end well for the team, as they were completely outplayed by the brilliance of the french giants. The mentality of this team will surely be tested when they take on Monaco in this game. A lot of their game has got to improve as their start to the league has been disappointing. They won 2 games, drew 3 and lost 1 of their opening 6 games.
The 4-0 defeat to PSG was their most recent game. PSG's Achraf Hakimi, Randal Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos were the goalscorers in that defeat.
Marseille know Monaco pretty well and even beat them last year on this ground. However their most recent meeting ended in a 1-1 draw back in January.
Marseille are currently 7th with 9 points from the first 6 games.
- No wins in 4 games.
- Less than 4.5 cards in 4/5 games.

Analysis and Predictions
Marseille's season is about to hit rock bottom if they fail to respond in this game. The 4-0 defeat to PSG, coupled with their struggles is already raising eye brows around the club. Another defeat would surely sink their confidence.
Marseille have always had a productive game against Monaco in the past but present form will be a huge factor in this game. Monaco are playing at home and they are eager to get back to winning ways after the defeat that was unmerited anyway. So, I expect them to be comfortable against Marseille but its difficult to call where this game is going as both sides are eager to not lose.
