📏 Form Guide

Montpellier WLLWLL

Montpellier will be looking for an improved result here following a 2-1 Ligue 1 loss in their previous game against Rennes.

In that game, Montpellier managed 34% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. For Montpellier, the goalscorers were Damien Le Tallec (22' Own goal) and Gaëtan Laborde (91'). Stade Rennais FC had 16 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Eduardo Camavinga (77') was the scorer for Rennes.

A common feature of more recent Montpellier games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.

Taking their prior sextet of clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a loser. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, however.

Coming into this fixture, Montpellier are undefeated in their previous 5 league matches at home.

Nice WDDWWW 📈

Nice will go into the match after a 0-2 Ligue 1 win to defeat Strasbourg in their most recent game.

In that match, Nice had 56% possession and 3 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. The only player to score for Nice was Kasper Dolberg (37', 59').

In their previous six outings, Nice have bagged the sum of 11 goals. Les Aiglons have additionally got on the scoresheet in every single one of those games. Over that period, they’ve seen 5 goals go into their own net.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Nice:

  • have not beaten Montpellier in games played away from home for the previous 4 matches in the league. They really have not been travelling well at all.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 6 league matches away from home.

↔️ Head to head

Checking out their prior head to head duels dating back to 24/02/2017, neither club has come out on top overall with Montpellier winning 3 of those games, Nice 3 and 0 being drawn in normal time.

An aggregate of 11 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 6 of them from La Paillade and 5 netted by Les Aiglons. That’s an average goals per game figure of 1.83.

The previous league game featuring these clubs was Ligue 1 match day 5 on 14/09/2019 when the final score was Montpellier 2-1 Nice.

On that day, Montpellier had 41% possession and 17 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. The scorers were Andy Delort (37') and Florent Mollet (56').

On the other side, Nice got 13 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Adrien Tameze (34') scored.

The match was refereed by Oliver Thual.

📰 Team News: Montpellier

Montpellier manager Michel Der Zakarian doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match thanks to a completely healthy squad available to select from. Florent Mollet cannot play in this game through suspension.

We think that La Paillade look set to go for a 3-5-1-1 formation, beginning the first half with Jonas Omlin, Pedro Mendes, Damien Le Tallec, Daniel Congré, Mihailo Ristić, Junior Sambia, Joris Chotard, Jordan Ferri, Arnaud Souquet, Teji Savanier and Gaëtan Laborde.

📋 Team News: Nice

With a completely healthy group ready to go, Nice manager Patrick Vieira has no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash.

There’s a good chance that Les Aiglons seem most likely to utilise a 4-3-3 formation by sending out Walter Benitez, Jordan Lotomba, Andy Pelmard, Dante, Hassane Kamara, Pierre Lees-Melou, Morgan Schneiderlin, Khéphren Thuram-Ulien, Eddy Sylvestre, Kasper Dolberg and Amine Gouiri.

✨ Prediction

We envisage that Nice are dangerous enough to breach the defence of this Montpellier team, although that probably shouldn’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.

Our tip is for a narrow 2-1 winning margin for Montpellier at full-time. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
