Montpellier vs Marseille Prediction 4 November 2016

On November 4 2016 at 19:45 in the opening game of the 12th matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Stade de la Mosson the local Montpellier play against Marseille.

The draw in the previous game against Lorient 2:2 was the fifth draw in the current championship for Montpellier. Before that they drew Monaco 6:2, Metz 0:1, outplayed Caen 3:2 and drew Dijon 3:3. Consequently, after 11 games played Montpellier have 11 points and take the 16th position in the standings of the national championship with 16:25 goal difference.

Even though Marseille started the season not in the best way, they still manage to improve their performance and get back to their usual level. They drew Bordeaux in the previous match and it prolonged their winless series. Now it’s already five games in a raw. Before that Marseille drew PSG 0:0, Angers 1:1, outplayed Metz 1:0 and Nantes 2:1. As a result, after 11 matches in the Ligue 1 Marseille have 14 points and the 10th place in the table.

Marseille won most of the games played between the teams. Last time they met in February this year and Marseille won against 0:1. Marseille are definitely extremely inconvenient competitors for Montpellier. Yet, Marseille show bad results in the away games this season, they only gained 2 points in the five matches. We can’t say that the hosts are the favorites of the upcoming game, yet they are likely at least not to lose.

Prediction for the match: Montpellier to win with +0.5 Asian handicap.
