OM: with Monaco, the men of Tudor will fall on a bone
Tomorrow Saturday (9 p.m.), OM return to Ligue 1 with a gala match at the Orange-Vélodrome againstAS Monaco on behalf of the 20th day. A strong opposition, with the 3rd against the 4th in the standings, and above all two teams that don’t leave much to the opponents at the moment. Because if we know that Igor’s men are aiming for the incredible figure of 7 rank victories in Ligue 1, the Monegasques are not left behind in terms of statistics, and especially outside, where Philippe’s team Clément seems a bit like at home. At the same time, it’s not really surprising, in the sense that the Rocher club only very rarely benefits from the “home” effect, and the victory of the Olympians in a Louis II almost entirely in the colors of OM last November (2-3) testified to this once again.
With 20 points taken in 9 away games, AS Monaco is in the European top this season… like OM
But, to come back to this strength of the Monegasques far from their bases, it should be known that they remain undefeated on the road since last October 23 and a 4-3 defeat in Lille. With 20 points taken in 9 away games, AS Monaco is in the European top this season. A course that places them alongside European leaders like Arsenal, Naples, Real Madrid, or even Barça. With 6 wins, 2 draws and just one defeat, AS Monaco’s away run is remarkable. But be careful, because there is another team that can say the same: it’s Olympique de Marseille! Indeed, the men of Tudor equal the Monegasques away, but they escape as soon as we look at the classification at home, and this is where they make the difference with 5 points more in the general classification.
“It’s only one defeat in the last seven Ligue 1 matches, and it was against OM more than two months ago”
But to come back to AS Monaco, beyond their away results, it is above all their current dynamic that OM will have to be wary of: “It’s only one defeat in the last seven Ligue 1 matches, confirms the journalist Nice morning Leandra Iacono, and this defeat is the one against OM more than two months ago. It’s a team that has gradually got back on track and is showing itself to be more and more solid. They really want to finish on the podium and that goes through convincing matches like the one on Saturday, against OM who currently seem unstoppable. It will be a very big test between two in-form teams, although the suspension of Mohamed Kamara in the middle will be a real blow.”. Indeed, we can conclude by estimating that the absence of the Malian will be complicated to fill, facing a Marseille midfielder who represents about what is currently best. For the rest, it is certainly a big confrontation that awaits us!
