Marseille vs Monaco Match Preview and Prediction
Marseille vs Monaco: On Saturday, Marseille will welcome Monaco to Stade Velodrome in Ligue 1 action, with two teams hoping to compete in Europe next season. Les Olympiens and Strasbourg drew 1-1 in their previous league game, leaving them three points behind Lille for a European slot and six behind Les Monegasques, who fell to fourth after losing 3-1 to Reims.
Marseille has been winning regularly since late November, but they haven’t moved up the Ligue 1 standings very much. They have only lost twice in their last 11 games across all competitions, and the most recent of those losses was last Sunday in a shootout in the Coupe de France (9-8 vs. Rennes).
Even though Gennaro Gattuso’s team has scored points in seven straight league games, they only have 28 points at the halfway point of the domestic season—11 fewer than they had after 18 games in the previous season.
Marseille has lost four games since the start of the 2023–24 Ligue 1 season, when they scored the first goal. This translates to nine points lost, which might put them in second place.
Monaco had a dismal start to the 2024 domestic season, giving up more than one goal in a Premier League match for the first time since matchday 13 (a 5-2 loss to Paris Saint-Germain).
Adi Hutter’s team has lost two of their previous three Ligue 1 games. They went from sitting comfortably in the top three, which guaranteed them a spot in the Champions’ League group stage, to being just two points above Lille for a qualifying spot in that competition.
With Monaco winning their last two home games while losing their last two league games at Stade Louis II, it may be better for them to be away from home at the moment.
They have won four straight competitive away-from-home games, including the Coupe de France, and have scored several goals in each of those contests.
