Ligue 1 football kicks off tonight with the clash of Marseille v Montpellier


The 15th round of Ligue 1 football kicks off this evening with the clash of Marseille v Montpellier at the Stade Vélodrome. Will it be the 2010 champions or the 2012 winners that takes all three points in the weekend opener?

Although they were the Ligue 1 champions just two seasons ago in the 2011/12 season, Montpellier have not had the best start to this season as they sit 16th place in the table having taken just 15 points from 14 games as they sit just five points above the drop zone. Marseille are at the opposite end of the table as they sit fourth and although they cannot move any higher in the table with a win they will be looking to strengthen their grasp on this position, but can they claim victory in front of their own fans in this Marseille v Montpellier clash? Bookmakers seem to think they can make the home win in this match:

Marseille v Montpellier Betting Odds:

Marseille to win – 1.74

Draw – 3.25

Montpellier to win – 4.30
