Monaco vs Marseille (September 11) match preview and stats
Monaco are clearly struggling: they have already lost a lot of fixtures in the 2021-22 season. The Champions League knockout followed a bad start to the new season of the Ligue 1. The Monegasques are in 14th place with one victory, one draw, and two losses.
Niko Kovaс’s men met Nantes (1-1) in the first round of the league. Needless to say that the Yellow House are a much weaker team than AS Monaco. After this draw, Monaco lost two fixtures against Lorient (0-1) and Lens (0-2) in the second and third round, respectively. In the most recent game, Monaco won over Troyes (2-1), which was their first victory.
But it is important to note that the Monegasques have dominated in all fixtures in the Ligue 1 2021-22, including lost ones. Niko Kovaс’s squad has made approximately nine shots and three shots on target per match on average. They have controlled the ball 67.25% of the time. However, Monaco have made only 81 defensive actions in four fixtures.
We have seen a total under 2.5 goals in five of the last eight fixtures with Monaco participating. The same outcome is priced with the odds of 2.00 (+100; 1/1) in this match.
Monaco team news: Aleksandr Golovin — ankle injury, Djibril Sidibe — muscle injury, Kevin Volland — ankle injury.

In spite of the fact that Jorge Sampaoli’s men did not win this game, they dominated it. In the last match, Marseille absolutely destroyed Saint-Etienne (3-1).

Monaco vs Marseille (September 11) betting tips and prediction
Marseille played flawlessly in attack and defence and did not lose a fixture, whereas Monaco did not play as perfect in the starting three games of the 2021-22 Ligue 1. I believe Les Olympiense will win this fixture.
Also, both teams could score here, because Marseille has conceded in the last nine matches. Besides, Monaco have scored at least two goals in 11 of their last 13 matches against Marseille in all competitions. It would be logical to expect a total over 2.5 goals too.
