Monaco v Marseille Preview, Ligue 1, Sunday 26th January 2014

Mostly this month we have seen Monaco feature in the Coupe de France having beaten both Vannes and Monts Or Azergues away from home. They now face Nice in the last sixteen away from home in hopes to progress into the quarter final. This upcoming match on Sunday is the first time Monaco have played at home this month with their last visitors Valenciennes beating them in a shock 2 – 1 result.

Marseille themselves have also had a busy month away from the Ligue 1 competition having only played one league match as the beat Evian 2 – 1 away from home. They themselves also have played twice in the Coupe de France having beaten Reims 2 – 0 in extra time only to be knocked out by Nice in a nine goal thriller that ended 5 – 4.

Monaco v Marseille Team News

Monaco Team News:

Monaco have a couple of injuries to worry about with Radamel Falcao on the list with a serious crucial knee ligament injury. We also see Frenchman Anthony Martial miss out this week due to a sprained ankle.

Marseille Team News:

We only have one injury noted for Marseille who see Ghana international Andre Ayew Pele miss out with a knee injury. The young striker has so far scored two goals in ten games this season.

Monaco v Marseille Head to Head Statistics

It’s not that surprising seeing that Marseille have the better results both in the last 5 head to head statistics and also in the 34 games played in total. Monaco have won 8 and Marseille have won 16 which gives Marseille the upper hand in regards to stats. We have also got 10 draws with 4 of them coming with Marseille away from home. Of course history is more likely to change now that Monaco have new rich owners and now challenge for Ligue 1 honors alongside the likes as PSG.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

Monaco v Marseille Recent Form (Left to Right)

Monaco: W W D W L

Marseille: L L W W D

Regardless of the loss Monaco suffered at the end of December since then they have still been in fine form having won in the Coupe de France and entering the last sixteen. Marseille themselves come into this match on the back of two defeats in separate cups so confidence could be on a low right now.

Monaco v Marseille Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Sundays game looks to be a very promising spectacle with both clubs chasing points for their own reasons. Monaco look to grab all three points to continue the chase against current Ligue 1 leaders PSG, and we also have Marseille looking to continue picking up points as they look to grab that 3rd place Champions League spot that’s currently 9 points adrift.

Monaco are in the better form coming into this game and although they lost their last game at home to relegation fighting Valenciennes I just cannot see them dropping points here as they look to not lose twice on the trot at home. So lets get down to some predictions for Sundays game and I can see a Monaco win here bet lets add something to spice it up. So I am going for Monaco to win and for Yannick Carrasco to score. The other I am going for it a total match goals of 2 – 3 which should prove a good choice hopefully.
