Can they bounce back in the second round when they travel to Stade de la Licorne to take on Amiens SC on Saturday evening?

The hosts will also be looking for their first points in the new season, but in all fairness, they could not have done much better than losing 2-0 against Olympique Lyon away at Groupama Stadium.

The head coach Chris Pelissier was afraid of an even higher catastrophe following the 1-3 defeat to Cardiff City in the final pre-season test before the official start to the Ligue 1 campaign.

Amiens SC vs Montpellier: Head-to-head

  • Montpellier have never managed to grab the spoils from Stade de la Licorne.
  • La Paillade suffered four defeats and held on to two draws in six previous visits to Amiens.
  • Both of last term meetings ended up with the same 1-1 scoreline.
  • Interestingly, both teams scored in three of last four H2H meetings.

Amiens SC vs Montpellier: Prediction

Montpellier’s attacking line disappointed heavily on the opening day as they produced barely anything in front of Dijon’s goal in spite of having an early lead and a vulnerable opposition seeking for the equalizer. Their lone goal actually came from full-back Pedro Mendes.

La Paillade’s defensive line was way too vulnerable, though, allowing Dijon score two goals and miss a penalty-kick in the dying minutes of the game.

This is why we see plenty of room for Moussa Konate to shine and score his first goal of the campaign in team’s maiden home game of the season. Konate bagged 13 goals last year.

Amiens SC won 4 and drew 2 of 6 home games against La Paillade and we just have to see a massive value in backing the hosts to win at the odds of 3.10. You can alternatively back Konate to score anytime at 3.20.

Amiens SC vs Montpellier: Bet Tips

  • Amiens SC to win @ 3.40 (12/5)
  • Moussa Konate to score anytime @ 3.20 (11/5).
