Marseille have performed very weakly in the first half of the season. The series of bad results have led to dropping out from Europa League, League Cup, and several days ago the lower tier team Andrezieux knocked The Olympians out from Coupe de France. In the league, Marseille also are not performing well and are sixth in the standings. The good news is that they with ten points behind the second in the league – Lille, but with three games less.
The situation of Monaco is similar, the results are bad, and their participation in the Champions League and their position in League 1 suffered, as the team is on 19 place in the standings. Thierry Henry’s appointment as a head coach of the team gave some positive reflection, which is visible mainly for the cups in France. From the start of the year, The Monégasques have played two games, and the victories in them secured a 1/16-final for the Coupe de France and a 1/2-final for the League Cup.
Despite the difference in the position in the standings of the teams, we are expecting an intriguing derby with an unclear final winner. Marseille are good at home, while Monaco won more points in their away fixtures. The games between both teams are with many goals, and because of the bad performance in defence for both teams, we expect both sides to score. Definitely, Monaco is in better form at the moment, as Monaco had some unexpected failures at home. We don’t expect the hosts to win, but even if this happens, it will not be with more than one goal difference.
