Montpellier vs Marseille: Predictions and Betting Tips
Montpellier finished last season in eighth position, just four points away from qualifying for the Europa Conference League. They will be hoping to go on better this season, but it could be a close race for them.
Due to the financial crisis as a result of Covid, Montpellier have not been able to make any major signings this season which would boost their team performance. Their most notable signing is French centre-back Mamadou Sakho from Crystal Palace.
Montpellier’s have had wins and losses in their pre-season matches, including a 2-1 win over RB Leipzig.
Marseille finished last season in fifth place, which allowed them to qualify directly for the group stage of this season’s Europa League.
Marseille have been quite active in this transfer window, with William Saliba, Luan Peres, Pau López, Matteo Guendouzi, Cengiz Ünder, Leonardo Balerdi, and Konrad de la Fuente, among the arrivals. Most of their signings are young.
Marseille’s pre-season has left them full of confidence, as they have not suffered any defeats against teams of a comparable quality..
- Two wins, and three defeats for Montpellier in their last five games (Pre-season)
- Montpellier have conceded nine goals in their last five games (Pre-season)
- Three wins and two draws for Marseille in their last five games (Pre-season)
- Marseille have conceded at least one goal in all of their last six games (Pre-season)
Montpellier vs Marseille Predictions
It is the first official match of the season for both, so it is difficult to know in what condition the two teams will be going into the match. What we do know is that Montpellier had more defeats than victories in pre-season, while Marseille had some solid victories. Although the match will be played at Montpellier’s home ground, we think Marseille are the slight favourites to take the three points.
