Welcome to our preview of this Ligue 1 fixture between Monaco and Marseille. Once this would have been considered almost a walkover for Marseille, when they were one of the strongest teams in Europe and Monaco were a lowly minnow, often confined to the second tier of French football. Nowadays the tables have turned completely. The fortunes of the island-based club have utterly turned around, and Monaco now occupy the upper echelons of French football, and will no doubt be challenging at Europe’s top table in due course. Marseille would undoubtedly take a point here, while Monaco will certainly be hoping to win to keep up the pressure on PSG at the top of Ligue 1.
