Marseille vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: 10 April 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Orange Velodrome.
Marseille and Montpellier will take on each other in the last fixture of Sunday’s Ligue 1 schedule in the 31st round of the competition at Stade Orange Velodrome.
Marseille will be searching for their seventh consecutive in across competitions. They have been flying high attackingly in the last couple of months, netting at least two goals in each of the mentioned six wins in the process.
The latest of successes came on Thursday night when Marseille saw off Greek side PAOK 2-1 at home in the first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League quarterfinal.
Marseille have registered as many as 28 attempts, allowing their rivals only one shot on target on the occasion. Moving forward, the Phocians bagged four goals in the last weekend’s away drubbing of Saint-Etienne (2-4 at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard).
Sampaoli’s men are now three points clear off Rennes in third and five points above Strasbourg in fourth place.
They should have a nice chance to maintain the tremendous spell of form here against Montpellier who have nothing but pride to play for in the remaining eight games of the season.
The team led by Olivier Dall’Oglio suffered a 1-2 home loss to Brest last weekend, registering only three shots on target on the occasion. They have lost three of the last five league outings.
