AS Monaco face the rest of the season without Colombian super striker Falcao and will be faced with a stern test against Marseille at home on Sunday. Consider the draw pick.Bet on today's Ligue 1 games and take advantage of a sweet deal from William Hill, where you can land a $100 betting bonus.
The loss of the 60 million Euro Falcao up front is a devastating loss to the Mediterranean principality but they still come into their match against Marseille as 1.80 favourites in the 1x2 market.
Though the focus of the squad has been their offensive names their strong 7-1-2 record at home has been more of a testament to their defensive prowess as showcased by their lowly six goals conceded from ten matches at the Stade Louis ll.
The turmoil and shock surrounding Falcao's departure will affect the team today and as such the draw result at 3.25 looks quite appealing.
Visiting Marseille have actually performed better on the road than at home and have posted the third best away mark in League 1 with a 5-2-4 record (W-L-T). Their four draws on the road should merit serious consideration.
A win for the visitors would see them move just one point out of the final European spot and can be taken at 5.00. They lost at home to Monaco earlier this season by a 2-1 score and only have one win from their last five league matches.
Emmanuel Riviere will be expected to pick up the goal scoring gap left by Falcao's injury. He is tied for seventh in the league scoring charts with eight strikes this season and can be taken at 2.20. You will see Falcao's name on the correct scorer markets but if you haven't digested this article, know that he is out for the season.
A correct score market sees a slew of options available but the 1-1 result at 7.50 offers the best value of the bunch.
