Game of the weekend in France where Monaco will host league leaders Marseille, can Monaco upset the leaders or will Marseille be able to get a victory on the road? Marseille have struggled on the road recently losing three of their last four away from home and this is not an easy away game for the league leaders. With Gignac and Ayew up top Marseille will have plenty of attacking talent but they will be coming up against a superb Monaco defence who have kept four clean sheets in their last five games in all competitions.
Monaco look like a team that has finally started to find their form and they are moving up the table and in the right direction. Berbatov and Mouthino are the key men up front for Monaco but there are injury concerns about Berbatov and he may miss tomorrows game. The key figures for Monaco though really will be the defence, who have been sensational of late. This is a huge game for both clubs and with Monaco having the form and home advantage coming into this game I think they might just shade this one.
I am going to take the unders though. I cant see many goals in this one and I think that Monaco's defence will be the key here, six of the last six Monaco games have gone under the 2.5 mark, three of the last four Marseille games have also gone under the mark.
