Monaco – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
AS Monaco made its appearance in the soft belly of the classification, in 11th place, and is now within reach of the podium, only 3 points from Lille, 3rd. The “Red and White” are ambitious again after a catastrophic start. Leonardo Jardim’s team has taken 12 points out of 15 in the last 5 days with four wins over Nice (3-1), Brest (4-1), Rennes (3-2) and Nantes (1-0) this week-end. The ASM is carried by his formidable duo Ben Yedder-Slimani but he will not be in the league and then the Portuguese coach should let the French international rest while the Algerian international, injured, is flat rate. Jardim, who plays this League Cup thoroughly, will find the best solutions (Keita Baldé, Augustin) to be competitive. Olympique de Marseille is quite disappointing with only 1 success on its last 6 games played. The club has just suffered a serious loss in Paris this Sunday against PSG (4-0) and demonstrates that it is no longer effective away from the Velodrome. Thus, the partners of Payet, back to the competition, out of 1 draw in Dijon (0-0) and 2 losses in Amiens (3-1) and Paris (4-0).
