Marseille vs Monaco: With the Ligue 1’s top-3 ensuring access to the Champions League and with one of those spots already being destined to Paris SG
There are 3 contenders who are fighting for the other 2 spots. Lyon has, right now, a small advantage over their rivals.
With Marseille and Monaco facing off this Saturday and being able to at least, for now, offer some clarity to the potential recipients of the tickets that are worth millions.
This will, this way, be one of those matches where the points are worth double, with a potential win for Marseille creating a 4-points gap between the clubs in the top-3 and Monaco.
Marseille is coming off a streak of 6 consecutive wins and they are still competing on the Europa League and on the Coupe de France, besides being on a good moment of form in Ligue 1.
AS Monaco is still showing some weaknesses that have left them out of the European competitions, with draws against Montpellier and Nice on Ligue 1 and the elimination from the Coupe de France, at home, against Lyon, marking the start of 2018 for them.
That’s not a very nice scenario for a team that was coming off a streak of unbeaten matches, but that still wasn’t able to make sure they stayed in the race for a place in the top-3.
Marseille vs Monaco – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The higher amount of pressure, in terms of schedule, has had an impact, with Monaco having one more match ahead of them, on Wednesday.
Leonardo Jardim will feel, at the same time that his roster isn’t completely stable, since there are players leaving, like Carrillo for Southampton for example.
This is a transition year, like it had been defined, but it is surely being more inconsistent than the manager would like.
For Rudi Garcia, with opportunity also comes responsibility. Upon their demanding crowd, only a win will make sense right now.
