Monaco and Marseille will square off at the Stade Louis II on Sunday night, with both teams aiming to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Monaco lost 2-1 on the road at Bordeaux last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Pietro Pellegri just after the hour mark. Marseille, on the flip side, fought back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 home draw against Rennes thanks to a goal from Lucas Ocampos and an own-goal by Ramy Bensebaini.

Betting Tips for the game
Monaco kicked off the new Ligue 1 season with a comfortable 1-3 away victory at Nantes and then drew nil-nil at home against Lille. However, the Monegasques have suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat on the road at Bordeaux last weekend. Monaco are now back on home soil where they have only lost once in their last 15 games across all competitions and are currently on a ten-game unbeaten run.
Marseille have endured a similar run of form like Monaco in this early part of the campaign. They beat Toulouse 4-0 at home on the opening round and then registered a 3-1 loss against Nimes and a 2-2 draw against Rennes. The only difference is that OM have struggled for fluency on the road over the past four months, registering four draws and two defeats in their last six trips.
Although both sides have struggled for consistency of late, Monaco can count on their recent home form and their home record against Marseille. Our betting tips and predictions expect Monaco to win at odds 2.70.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
We should have goals in this one as each of the last five competitive meetings between these two have seen more than four goals. Actually, each of Marseille’s three opening games in this early part of the season have ended with over 3.5 goals. Our total goals prediction anticipate over 2.5 goals at odds 1.65.

First Goalscorer odds
Radamel Falcao has been pretty quiet for Monaco so far, helping the team with just one goal and one assist in his three league appearances. He managed to score 39 goals in Monaco’s last two seasons in Ligue 1 and we fancy him to get back to goalscoring ways here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Radamel Falcao at odds 4.50.
