The Best Free Predictions for Marseille vs Montpellier
There were a total of five goals scored in the reverse match played back in August 2022 when the current season kicked off. The game ended 3-2 in favour of Marseille. With only three points clear of third place and four points above fourth place, Marseille is in a tight spot in fight for Champions League places next season. Our best two predictions for this game are:
Marseille to win @ 1/2 (1.50)
Marseille is our pick to bag all points in this duel against Montpellier. The hosts have another chance to stem their place in top two and there is no better time to do it than now. While Montpellier hasn’t done poorly away from home, recent stats for the visitors show a team that is struggling with lots of inconsistencies. Our pick is victory for the hosts
No goals on both sides @ 9/10 (1.90)
Another chance for Jorge Sampaoli to exert his dominance over Montpellier’s head coach, Olivier presents itself this Sunday. The hosting manager boasts three victories in three meetings with the visiting coach. While the hosts have failed to keep a clean sheet in the last eight games, they have a better scoring record than the visitors who have all but struggled to score in recent outings.

Marseille vs Montpellier Ligue 1 Fixture Preview, Team News and Lineups
Marseille and Montpellier lock horns this Sunday in Round 31 of French Ligue 1 2021/22 season. Here is how we expect these teams to lineup for this much-awaited game that could see the hosts cling to the second spot or slide down the Ligue 1 table.
Marseille predicted lineup-Lopez, Rongier, Saliba, Caleta-Car, Kolasinac, Kamara, Guendouzi, Under, Gerson, Payet and Bakambu.
Montpellier predicted lineup–Omlin, Souquet, Cozza, Sakho, Sambia, Ferri, Chotard, Mollet, Savanier, Mavididi and Wahi.
While Marseille is the favourite team in this duel partly because of an impressive run with good scoring record, the host have not done well on home soil as many would have expected. They are ranked 11th, behind Montpellier in home record after 15 games at the Orange Velodrome. However, Montpellier's current struggles with poor defending should be Marseille's blessings in this game. We expect the hosts to pile even more misery on the visiting team.
