The Marseille vs. Montpellier match will be played on Friday, May 24, at the Velodrome Stadium, Marseille. This is the last round derby match of Ligue 1, and it will decide which team will be the fifth-placed in the end. Marseille is currently 6th with 58 points, while Montpellier is 5th with 59 points at the moment.


  • Marseille won only one out of their last four games. In their last seven out of the last nine games we saw over 2.5 goals.
  • Montpellier is undefeated in six straight matches. During that period, they even defeated PSG. In their last three league matches we saw under 2.5 goals.


In their previous ten meetings, Marseille won three times, Montpellier celebrated four wins, while three matches ended in a draw. Montpellier had only one win in away matches against Marseille during that period.


Marseille didn't have a satisfying season. If they finish on the fifth place that can improve how they feel, but this match is not that important for them. It is hard to say what went wrong for them - they all have solid statistics and Marseille has a very strong team on paper, but they failed to fight for the place that leads to Champions League in the upcoming season.

Montpellier, on the other hand, had the season above all expectations. If they stay undefeated in the upcoming game, they will be fifth-placed team in Ligue 1. Marseille is better team on paper and a historically much bigger team their rivals. Montpellier will be defensive-minded and try to save 0:0.

Marseille is the favorite to win the upcoming match. We expect to see under 2.5 goals. Montpellier would be thrilled with a draw as well, since they don't need a victory to stay in front.
