Marseille vs Monaco by Lucien

Marseille got completely outplayed last Sunday evening in front of own fans against Paris SG, as the team suffered heavy 1:5 defeat. Players from Paris simply did whatever they wanted on the field, as they took the double lead quickly, in sixth minute via Marquinhos and in sixteen with a goal from Cavani.

Lucas and Draxler incresed their lead with a goal each, while Fanni only temporarily reduced the deficit, with Matuidi scoring fifth goal in 72nd minute. After this defeat Marseille remained at seventh position having seven points less than fourth placed Lyon, while their biggest trouble all season long remains playing in a good way for consecutive matches. The team is simply way unstable and that's not the way to reach European exit.

Hosts might rotated their squad a bit. Left defender and sometimes central defender Tomas Hubocan (12/0) won't be involved here since the match comes too soon for him after injury. Out and injured is also central midfielder Abou Diaby (2/0).

Monaco, on the other side, did well to get a victory last Saturday evening, as the team won over Guingamp 2:1 away from home. Glik brought them into the lead in 24th minute, with Monaco leaving a bit of the ball possession to their opponents, but without being threatened much at the back.

Fabinho doubled up the lead in 86th from a penalty kick, while Didot reduced the deficit in last moments of the game. It was ninth consecutive match without defeat for Monaco in Ligue 1 (with the team having seven victories and two draws), as they continue to lead the table with three points more than their closest followers Nice and PSG. Visitors also might rotate their squad a bit. Offensive midfielder Gabriel Boschilia (11/6) remains injured.

Such a defeat against PSG only couple of days ago is a clear sign to me that Marseille is far away from the level of biggest French clubs. The team needs to respond here after such a performance, but I don't see them improving with such easily. Visitors have plenty of quality in attack and I don't see the home team stopping them. Draw no bet option just make it much more attractive.
