Their last league defeat at Marseille was back on 8 December 2007 (2-0, goals from Rodriguez and Cana). Since then, AS Monaco have played at the Stade Vélodrome four times in Ligue 1, witha very healthy record of two wins and two draws. If they can make it five games in a row unbeaten in Marseille on Sunday, it would mark a major first for the Red & Whites.
Last season they were 1-0 down at half-time, but succeeded in turning the game around with goals from Falcao and Rivière. In 2010, they were also close to a victory. Guy Lacombe's side took the lead twice but eventually had to settle for a 2-2 draw (goals from Niculae and Park for Monaco). In 2009, Nenê and Park gave AS Monaco a 2-1 win, while in 2008 the sides played out a goalless stalemate.
Overall, AS Monaco have played 43 times at the Stade Vélodrome in Ligue 1, winning 10 of those games, with 13 draws and 20 defeats. Their heaviest defeat came in the very first meeting between the two sides in the top flight, during the 1953-1954 season, when OM won 5-1. Twenty-five years later in 1978-1979, a goal from Nogues and a brace from Onnis gave AS Monaco their biggest ever win in Marseille.
