Monaco have been the among the best home sides in Ligue 1 with 5 wins out of 6 games played so far, with the other game just being a draw. The team has improved dramatically offensively as compared to last season under Jardem. The team has a lot of firepower up front with the likes of Falcao (5 goals), Lemar (5 goals), Germain (3 goals) and Carillo (4 goals), showcasing the efforts from all over the pitch seeing them net 39 goals in 13 games, which is the best in the division by some distance. Monaco will rely on their strong offensive showing to outscore their opponents that has seen them only lose 2 games in the whole season.
Marseille on the other hand have been struggling for most of the season with just sitting in 11th spot relying purely on their home form to get them to 17 points in the season. Away from home they have been atrocious with no victories on the road. They have drawn 2 and lost 4 games out of 6 played, and the losses have seen them concede 12 goals in those 6 games. Marseille goal scoring has been horrible so far with just 13 goals in 13 games, which is the primary cause for their concern in winning games this campaign.
Monaco look very difficult to beat at home as teams like CSKA Moscow, Tottenham, Leverkusen, PSG and Villarreal have found out this season, and I expect Monaco to continue their good form scoring goals and winning this encounter.
