Montpellier to avoid defeat at the Vélodrome
Marseille closed out 2020 in hugely uninspiring form, winning just one of their final five matches of the year, and their 2-1 reverse at Angers on December 23 provided their most recent and disappointing setback.
With their confidence low, OM could find gathering three points against away day specialists at the Orange Vélodrome at tough task on Wednesday, and we think La Paillade are worth backing in the double chance market as a result.
Montpellier were beaten just once in eight Ligue 1 away assignments so far this season, and having won four and drawn one of their last five games on their travels before the turn of the year, Michel Der Zakarian’s side should prove tough to topple again.
La Paillade secured a point in two of their last three trips to play Marseille on their own patch, and the last time the teams faced off at the Vélodrome, they shared the spoils following a keenly contested 1-1 draw.
With Marseille conceding 1.14 goals per 90 minutes at home this term, and Montpellier shipping just 1.125 times per Ligue 1 away match since the summer, another 1-1 tie looks a fitting correct score prediction for their latest tussle.
