Olympique Marseille come into the match on a run of three wins in a row. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

L'OM won their last league match away to AS Saint-Etienne. Although there was a healthy dose of self-sabotage involved from the Greens who handed Marseille two penalties and an own goal to put them 1-3 ahead in the tie. The final score of the match was 2-4.

Dimitri Payet, who scored their first goal from the spot, is Olympique Marseille’s top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 2.7/1 to score against Montpellier HSC on Sunday.

The Paladins lost their last league match at home to Stade Brestois. Expected goals of 1.3 to 0.7 in favour of Montpellier indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match.

This is somewhat deceptive though in that Montpellier had failed to create a big chance in the game in 90 minutes when they were awarded an injury-time penalty. Téji Savanier stepped up to convert for his side for a consolation goal. The final score of the match was 1-2.

Savanier now has seven league goals this season for Montpellier and is 5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here.
