After losing their last two games in Ligue 1, Olympique Marseille will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they host Montpellier at the Stade Velodrome in the 22nd round of the French top flight.
The home side have been in a really good form in the last two months. However, things didn’t go so well in their last two league games as the team have lost both of them. Marseille have collected 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last match was against Olympique Lyon away from home where they suffered a heavy 3-1 defeat.
Marseille are currently sitting in the 7th place in the league table with 30 points from 8 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses. They have scored 24 goals and conceded 26 since the start of the season.
Patrice Evra has joined Marseille and the veteran has been confirmed to be eligible for the match; it wouldn’t be surprising to see him start immediately given the team’s struggles at left-back. André-Frank Zambo Anguilla performed decently well in front of defense against Lyon last weekend, but the youngster could miss out due to Vainqueur return from suspension.
The visitors have been very poor in recent weeks according to their results. Montpellier have managed to win in only one game in their last five league games. The team have lost in three of these five games and have continued their inconsistency trend since the start of the season.
Montpellier have collected just 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game was against Metz away from home where they lost 2-1.
Ryad Boudebouz has resumed training after a lengthy injury lay-off; the Algerian is the team’s leading scorer and will be an important factor if Montpellier want to do the double over their south coast rivals.
