Marseille will host Monaco at the Velodrome after a six-match winning streak. The Provençal side knocked out Hyeres and Rennes from the French Cup and beat Toulouse, Montpellier, Troyes, and Lorient in Ligue 1. These excellent statistics allow them to occupy the third line in the standings. The place is not bad, giving the right to participate in the Champions League qualification. Still, the Olympique players will not mind beating Lans, which has only two points more, and get a direct pass to the UCL. And there will not be long before competing with PSG for first place. Home statistics for Marseille is the fourth in the division with 22 points in 10 games. Also, Olympique has won the last three games at the Velodrome. Marseille has Ruiz and Harit injured.
After dropping out of the French Cup by the unknown Rodez, the Monegasques drew with Lorient on the road and defeated Ajaccio at home. Monaco crushed them with a score of 7:1 Corsicans. In the French championship, Monaco is fourth, behind Marseille by five points. The goal of Monaco is to clinch the Champions League at least from third place, so the visitors should not fail at the Velodrome. In this case, the gap from Olympique will increase to eight points, which will take a lot of work to overcome. Monaco's away statistics are third in the division, better only than those of PSG and Marseille, in nine games +6=2-1, 19:10 goal difference. Kamara, Martins, and Volland will not help Monaco in the upcoming match.
Expert Betting Tips
Marseille is good now. Betting against them at home is risky and unrewarding, even if Olympique's opponent is Monaco. We wonder if Marseille will fail on Saturday. At the same time, Marseille has conceded less than once per game in home games. Monaco performs better on the road and has a conceded goals index slightly higher than one. These statistics indicate that the upcoming match is a draw. Also, the main event is an interesting confrontation between Golovin and Malinovskyi. We'll see whose club will be stronger, but much is on the hosts' side.
