Coupe de France: Marseille vs Monaco

Marseille vs Monaco
Coupe de France
1st March, 2017 , 20:05 UK Time
Venue: Stade Velodrome, Marseille.

The game of the round in the Coupe de France will see Ligue 1 leaders Monaco travel to Marseille in what should be a fiery and heated clash. Monaco continued their path to the Ligue 1 title with victory over Guingamp but Marseille collapsed against PSG.

Last weekend PSG slaughtered Marseille 5-1 here at the Velodrome as the Earth came crashing down and the realization was for all to see that Marseille right now don’t belong with the big boys.

Marseille have only lost twice at home but they have been to PSG and Monaco and there is quite a gulf between those teams. After taking such a heavy loss on Sunday this isn’t the match that L’OM would want to face now.

Monaco has lost just 1 game in their past 15 and look irresistible to bet on at the moment. Goals can come from everywhere and they seem like a team who will relish coming to Marseille.

Prediction

Goals, goals and more goals is what we should expect to see when these two meet. In the last 6 matches here there is a 100% success rate to see over 2.5 goals. The last time this failed to happen was in 2008. We will therefore cut Marseille some slack- after all they are a wounded home team, and will concentrate on the goals market.

Bet Tips

Over 2.5 goals at 8/11
Anytime goal scorer: Valerie Germain (Monaco) at 9/4.
