Montpellier vs. Toulouse

 

Match Date: 23 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade de la Mosson

 

Montpellier

Sadly, Montpellier was unable to continue its winning streak after outlasting Evian Thonon Gaillard. Its match against Bastia ended in a painful defeat, which resulted into a bitter drop in the league table.

 

The club currently occupies the 13th spot of the table and is in dire need of a win in order to avoid slipping into the rock bottom part of the ranking.

 

Toulouse

Its 3-0 win over Metz will definitely inspire Toulouse to snatch another victory at Montpellier’s camp. After experiencing three (3) consecutive defeats, the thrashing of Metz is hoped to elicit the same winning attitude when they face football betting’s top pick, Montpellier.

 

Prediction

Montpellier 1-2 Toulouse

Marseille vs. Bordeaux

 

Match Date: 23 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade Velodrome

 

Marseille

There’s a strong possibility for Marseille to unleash a relentless attack against Bordeaux after bowing down to its fiercest rival, Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

 

Unable to score, the current league leader lost three (3) points and failed to extend its lead that could’ve assured them for a more comfortable run in the future.

 

Nevertheless, despite the defeat, Marseille remains in a competitive form. Its most recent loss was its first since the season started.

 

Bordeaux

Marseille is not the only team eager to win in the upcoming match. Bordeaux is also keen on continuing its winning streak.

 

The club earned a narrow win against Lens, which propelled its rank to the 4th spot of the table.

 

In terms of form, it can be fairly said that the squad lives up to expectations, having been undefeated in four (4) of its last six (6) matches.

 

 

Prediction

Marseille 0-3 Bordeaux
