📏 Form Guide

LWLDLL

Montpellier will be hoping for a better result following a 3-1 Ligue 1 defeat in their last game at the hands of Marseille.

In that match, Montpellier had 44% possession and 13 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Montpellier was Florent Mollet (53'). On the other side, Marseille got 16 attempts on goal with 7 on target. Nemanja Radonjić (41'), Dimitri Payet (80') and Valère Germain (84') scored for Marseille.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Montpellier haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that La Paillade have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 15 goals in the process.

Their previous form shows that Montpellier:

  • haven't won against Nantes in their last 3 league games.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 3 league games.

Previously, Nantes drew 0-0 in the Ligue 1 tie with Rennes.

In that game, Nantes managed 28% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Stade Rennais FC had 8 attempts on goal with 0 of them on target.

The strike force from Nantes have failed to get amongst the goals over their previous 6 encounters, contributing the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those matches, Les Canaris have also seen the overall goal tally of their opponents equal 12. In any event, we’ll just have to find out whether such a trend might be replicated in this game.

Their past results show that Nantes:

  • haven't been defeated by Montpellier in away games against them for the last 3 matches in the league.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 4 league games.

👥 Head to head

A glance at their most recent head to head meetings dating back to 11/03/2017 tells us that Montpellier have won 1 of them and Nantes 4, with the number of drawn games standing at 1.

An aggregate of 13 goals were scored between them in this period, with 5 of them from La Paillade and 8 netted by Les Canaris. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.17.

The previous league fixture featuring these sides was Ligue 1 match day 4 on 31/08/2019 when it ended Nantes 1-0 Montpellier.

That time, Nantes had 50% possession and 14 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Their only player to score was Abdoulaye Touré (85').

At the other end, Montpellier had 8 shots on goal with 1 on target.

The match was refereed by Karim Abed.

📋 Team News: Montpellier

Montpellier boss Michel Der Zakarian will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game owing to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from.

📋 Team News: Nantes

Due to a mostly available group, there is only the lone fitness issue for the Nantes boss Raymond Domenech to be concerned about. Anthony Limbombe (Tear in the abductor muscle) misses out for this game.

🧠 Prediction

We’ve got the feeling that Nantes must be fancied to find the back of the net against this Montpellier side, but that probably won’t be enough to avoid a loss.

We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 advantage for Montpellier after 90 minutes. It should be a decent one.
