8th Place in 20/21
Montpellier managed to finish in 8th place, only 4 points behind the Europa Conference League place. The team had the 5th best attack with 60 goals in 38 games. However, the defence turned out to be their main weakness as Montpellier conceded 62 goals, or that is the 5th weakest defence in Ligue 1. Much improvement is needed there for sure.
Reinforcement of the Squad
Marseille has seriously reinforced the squad with some young and promising players like Leonardo Balerdi (defender), William Sadiba (defender), Gerson (midfielder), Matteo Gendouzi (midfielder), Konrad de la Fuente (winger), Cengiz Under (winger). The team signed also the former Roma goalkeeper Pau Lopez. The squad of Marseille now looks quite impressive and it seems that the team will improve the achievements from the previous season.
We are not stating that Marseille will definitely win this game. But considering the incoming transfers, the team is ready to compete for the title in our humble opinion. An away victory at the start will give additional confidence to the team.
