Six matches were won by Olympique de Marseille and in five of them the team has missed any goal. Last Tuesday Rudi Garcia's team has got into 1/8 finals of the national Cup, having won over Épinal (2:0).

Only during recent away match against Olympique lyonnais (0:2) within the championship Olympique has left the field without the scored goal. Prior to this match Marseille was scoring in each match. The total number of scored goals is 45 at 22 matches that is only three meetings had led to defeat.
Monegasques have played the cup match one day after Marseille. The rival was Olympique lyonnais (2:3) which didn’t bring its optimum line-up but still has won at Louis II.
During the break of the match against Les tisseurs the head coach of Monaco has made unpopular decision — substitution of the goalkeeper. Instead of 34-year-old Diego Benaglio there was playing Seydou C who is younger than him for 12 years. Anyway, but in the championship of France Leonardo Jardim prefers Danijel Subašić.
5 victories in 7 last matches were won by Monegasques in frames of the Ligue 1. At the same time both draws had happened in three last rounds. The defending champion has lost points during the sway match against Montpellier (0:0) and Nice (2:2).
Only two victories out of five last away matches of the championship were achieved by the Red and Whites. Besides the loss of scores with Montpellier there also were unsuccessful matches against Amiens (1:1) and Nantes (0:1). Radamel Falcao has scored only 2 goals in 5 last rounds. In many respects the problems with attacks of the team from Monte Carlo is explained by the bad physical form of the football player.
Marseille – Monaco matches
At the end of summer Monegasque had won home match over Marseille (6:1) and that defeat still is the most significant for Olympique under the leadership of Rudi Garcia. In six games in a row the hosts of Vélodrome can't beat Monaco. Last spring the White and Blues had lost at home with the score 1:4.
Marseille to win 1.95
Monaco to win 3.75
Predictions on the course of the game Marseille – Monaco
has happened that the Red and Whites became the real evil geniuses of
Olympique the last seasons. The best moment to break series of
failures at head-to-head meetings is difficult to imagine. Marseille
has now regained an excellent form. The team attacks actively and
defend the own gates. Together with not ideal form of the rival’s
goalscorers this can bring to the hosts 3 points.
