AS Monaco vs Olympique Marseille (Ligue 1, 14.12.2014)

Ligue 1 is due for another Clash of the Titans match as AS Monaco get ready to host the current leaders, Olympique de Marseille. The two teams are separated by 12 points in the table, with Marseille having 38 at the top, and Monaco 26 on the 7th. The visitors summed up three wins in the last four matches following the defeat against PSG, which is the same number as Monaco who lost against Rennes three matches ago.

Monaco come from securing a last 16 place in Champions League after a 2-0 win over Zenit. The team have been struggling after Falcao and James Rodriguez moved to countries with a better climate, but critics are now patiently awaiting the draw on Monday to draw their conclusions. Should they win they would shorten the distance from Marseille by nine points. Berbatov got injured against Zenit and will miss the match, while Kurzawa and most likely Jardim will have to sit this one out.
Marseille reinvented themselves after starting the year with a defeat to Montpellier, but since then they only dropped three points to Lyon and PSG, who currently are one point behind them in the table. In their latest win against Metz Gainelli got a hamstring injury, but is tipped to return to training in time to feature against Monaco. The majority of the squad is in good shape, and even with Alessandrini missing to a long injury they should be able to push for a win against Monaco, whom they are unable to beat in Ligue 1 since 2010.

The bookmakers cannot single a clear winner due to the similar potential of both teams
, which is why Monaco to win has 2.60 odds, Marseille 2.80 and a draw has 3.20 odds. Over 2.5 goals has 2.15 odds, AS Monaco for both halves 4.33, Marseille 4.50 and over 10 corners 2.05 odds. Gignac is your main choice for the goalscorer market with 2.40 odds, Payet 3.10 and Ayew 4.00. We are going to bet 7 units on an outright Marseille win with odds from Bet365.
