Marseille vs Montpellier – Betting Preview

Marseille and Montpellier are coming from winning their previous matches. This keeps both sides psyched up as they head to this game. This is going to be a very entertaining match it from previous H2H, they rae characterized by fantastic attacking play with goals flowing.

Marseille is undefeated in their past three games and has scored in all four. They’ve scored 13 goals in their past four games. They are currently in second position and will be looking to grab some points as they chase against the current league leader PSG.

Marseille Preview

Marseille enters this game fresh off of a thrilling European Conference League matchup against PAOK Salonika during the previous week.

Fans from both teams created a ferocious atmosphere both on and off the field, but Dimitri Payet made the loudest noise when his Puskas Award-worthy screamer nestled into the top corner to seal the victory.

Given that they have defeated Montpellier three times in their last five meetings, they will feel confident about tightening their hold on second place.

Montpellier Preview

Over the years Montpellier have established themselves as a mid-table side in French Ligue 1. Montpellier are considered one of the youngest clubs in France as they were founded in 1974.

This season, Montpellier has nothing left to play for. They are not in danger of being drawn into a relegation fight, but they are also unlikely to qualify for Europe at this time.

The fact that the visitors have only amassed 10 points in 2022 and would have been in the running for Europe if they had picked up a few more victories would probably make them feel disappointed.

The fact that they have won two of their past three away games while keeping a clean sheet makes them eager for this one, though.
