The game of the week in Ligue 1 will see Monaco travel to Marseille with both teams looking for a win to move up the table. Monaco have lost just one of their last eight Ligue 1 games and have one of the best away records in the league winning four of their seven away fixtures and losing just once. Monaco though have struggled for goals this season and the sale od Anthony Martial definitely had consequences for their offence which has struggled all season. With Silva and Lamar top scoring with three goals this is a team that is reliant on their solid defence, Monaco have scored just eighteen goals this season and have only conceded eighteen as well with contreau, Carvalho and silva at the back this is a team that wont be easily broken down.
Marseille come into this game having won four of their last five in all competitions, Marseille struggled at the start of this seaon but have really kicked into gear in recent weeks and look like a team that is going to go up the table. Marseille have a quality striker in their ranks and Batshuayi on his day is a handful for every team , with nine goals this season he is just two off the top of the scorers charts and he has been playing with a Marseille team that has struggled for much of the season. If Marseille turn it around then Alessandrini and Batshuayi will be the key men and again tomorrow alot of Marseille's game will revolve around their front man.
A win for Monaco could bring them to second in the table and a win for Marseille could see them up to the top half and only four points off Champions League football. This is going to be a battle and I think that both teams will cancel each other out here and I am takign the draw.
