Both Teams to Score

This is a fixture between two sides aiming for the top five. Montpellier have conceded 50 goals so far while their Saturday opponents have conceded 36 in 31 Ligue 1 fixtures. However, we are no looking at a much improved Montpellier. They have not lost in their last 9 Ligue 1 matches, and have gone unbeaten in 12 games in all competitions. But because Montpellier has conceded at least a goal to Marseille in their last 11 out of 12 last meetings dating back to 2015, we are backing the visitors to find the net in this fixture. Montpellier is a much-improved side and backing them to also score is plausible.

Under 2.5 Goals

Only three points separate the two teams. The hosts sit 8th and four points shy of the top five. Marseille needs at least point to displace RC Lens from the fifth spot. The first leg of the season between the two teams ended 3-1 in favor of Marseille. Coming into this fixture, Marseille have three wins in their last four Ligue 1 fixtures. Both teams have been conceding an average of one goal in their last six fixtures which is why fewer than three goals is a likely outcome on Saturday.

First Team to Score

Marseille will find it hard to break a defensive side in the first half. While a goal looks likely in the first half, Montpellier hasn’t lost at home to their Saturday opponents since November 2016. This will be an interesting fixture given the long-standing home form for the hosts against Marseille. We are backing the much-improved Montpellier to score first.

Montpellier

It is not easy to bet against Montpellier in this fixture. The worst they hope for is a draw. They have three draws that ended 1-1 in the last five matches, a 0-0 and 3-1 victory. They have not lost in the last 12 games in all competitions. The fact that Marseille has not beaten Montpellier at home since November 2016 is another unique perspective in this fixture. The hosts have improved defensively, conceding a maximum of one goal five of their last six fixtures. Moreover, Montpellier have scored 30 and conceded 30 goals at home so far, averaging one goal per match, which is the seventh-best in the league.

Marseille

Marseille is historically a top Ligue 1 team. In this fixture, they will be hoping to collect all six points from Montpellier this season. Unfortunately, Marseille does not have a very good away record. They are ranked 14 out of 20 on the road, having conceded 18 goals and scored 15 in 15 away fixtures so far. Essentially, this will be a tough match for both sides and we see them sharing the spoils.
