Montpellier vs Marseille: Preview, Free Tip & Prediction

07.08.2021 19:00

Montpellier and Marseille will be the last two teams to enter the new Ligue 1 season as their clash will conclude the opening round programme on Sunday evening. Both teams finished in the top 10 last season, but Marseille had more reasons to celebrate, having secured a Europa League group thanks to their 5th place finish. 


Background information, news and team form

Montpellier did not experience a bad season last year, the final 8th place can be considered a solid result in a tough competition. Despite this, there were significant changes at MHSC after the season: long-time manager Der Zakarian left and was replaced with former Brest coach Olivier Dall'Oglio, legendary centre-back Hilton hung up his cleats and the club was reinforced by Premier League and French national team veteran Mamadou Sakho. 

If Montpellier underwent changes over the summer, Marseille has undergone an earthquake. OM had already experienced a managerial change in the spring, when Sampaoli joined the team, but after the end of the season, it was time to adjust the playing squad. Gone are Thauvin, Sakai, Pele or Nagatomo, while Gerson, Saliba, Guendouzi, Under or De La Fuente are new signings. Marseille thus enters the new season significantly changed. 



Betdoin's view of the match 

Montpellier was one of the goal-scoring teams last season, Marseille also became an offensive-minded team after the spring arrival of Sampaoli. Goal bets are thus on offer and Betdoin's algorithm sees it similarly, finding significant value in the odds of over 2.5 goals in the match. Other over bets or a bet on both teams to score are not at all out of place either. 



Absentees and likely line-ups 

Montpellier can't count on several players for the opening game of the season: goalkeeper Omlin is injured, defenders Oyongo and Mendes also have health problems and key midfielder Savanier is not yet fully fit after participating in the Olympics. Marseille are not much better off, having to do without goalkeeper Lopez, defenders Alvaro and Caleta Car and striker Milik. 


Montpellier - probable line-up:

Bertaud - Souquet, Thuler, Sakho, Ristic - Mollet, Chotard, Ferri - Laborde, Delort, Mavididi

Marseille - probable line-up:

Mandanda - Saliba, Peres, Balerdi - Under, Guendouzi, Kamara, Gerson, Henrique - Benedetto, Payet
