Game of the weekend in France comes from Marseille as the home team host Monaco with both teams needing to win in the race for Champions League football. Marselle abolutely must win if they are to have any hope of catching Monaco. Marseille are five point s behind with three games left and a win here will close the gap to two. The southern france side struggled of late losing four of their last five but winning last time out and know the importance of getting to the Champions League both financially and for the fans. Gignac and Ayew will be key for Marseille if they are to achieve that and they will face the best defence in the league on Sunday, the question is can they break them down?
For Monaco it's simple they need to take a point from this game and a point in their last two to guarantee themselves Champions League football next season. Monaco will look to a forward line of Martial, Berbatov, Mouthino and Silva to get at a Marseille defence that have been anything but solid in recent weeks. Monaco were suprise quarter finalist in the Champions League and were only beaten by one goal by Juventus who look set to make the final after beating Real Madrid in their first lef of the Semi Finals.
Two well matched teams here and while I would normally say the unders are a certainty for Monaco games in recent weeks monaco have looked very good offensively, I think both teams will find the net here in what should be a tight encounter. A 1-1 draw wouldnt surprise me here and I am going to take both teams to score. Marseille know they must win and must go for it and monaco have the attackers to hurt Marseille.
