Note: The odds for this game are subject to change on Betfred before kick-off. Please confirm your bet slip with the bookmaker for updated odds.

Marseille favourites to win

We are backing Jorge Sampaoli’s men to get their first victory of the season on the road. Sampaoli’s steered Marseille the fifth spot last season, thereby qualifying for Europa League. The visitors have been phenomenal in pre-season matches, registering 5W and 2D. On the other hand, pre-season fixtures have exposed Montpellier’s shaky defence, which will likely cost them this match. The hosts lost three and won one game in their last four games.

Total goals: Over 2.5

We are also tipping more than two goals in this game. The hosts played four games in July and conceded more than they scored. They come to this game having leaked an average of 2.25 goals in four July fixtures. On the other hand, Marseille scored more than they conceded in July pre-season games. The visitors netted an average of two 2.00 goals in seven pre-season matches.

Marseille favourites to score first

Based on the recent scoring and defensive records of both teams, Marseille will most likely score first in this fixture. Despite keeping only one clean sheet in July games, the visitors netted an average of 2.00 goals in seven games. On the other hand, Montpellier scored an average of 1.5 goals and conceded an average of 2.25 goals. Marseille leaked an average of 0.86 goals in July.

Game Preview: Montpellier Starting the Season with a New Head Coach

Olivier Dall’Oglio is the new head coach for Montpellier. He joins La Paillade from Brest. Can he steer the hosts to finish higher in the league this season? Our game preview digs deeper into this match.

Montpellier

The hosts have acquired the services of Olivier Dall’Oglio from Brest and hope things could get better this season. In his capacity as the new head coach, Olivier Dall’Oglio hopes to secure his first victory over Marseille’s head coach, Jorge Sampaoli. The two managers have had one encounter and Sampaoli won it. Finishing eighth last season means the hosts can do better this season, and it starts with boosting their troubled defence.

Marseille

Marseille finished fifth last season, six points below fourth-placed Lyon and only eight points from the top four. The visitors have retained Sampaoli in that he will help them do better this season. Moreover, Marseille comes to this game in top form and this game is for them to lose or win.
