Angers vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: 21 May 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa (Angers).

Mid-table neighbors Angers and Montpellier will meet each other on the final day of the Ligue 1 campaign at Stade Raymond-Kopa.

The outcome of this match will by no means change anything in terms of this season in general for either of these two outfits.

As a matter of fact, Montpellier will finish 13th regardless of what happens on the final day as they are five points above 14th-placed Angers and three points behind 12th-placed Reims who own a much better goal difference.

On the other side, Angers can only play to keep the 14th position in the Ligu3 1 table, currently threatened by Troyes and Clermont who are one and two points behind respectively.

Montpellier’s players have been on the beach for quite some time now. They did not play defense at all in the recent weeks.

La Paillade are this winless in eight consecutive league outings. They have lost six and drawn two in the process.

The team led by Olivier Dall’Oglio conceded at least two goals in each of the previous five league matches.

The negative streak includes the tough 0-4 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain last weekend at Stade de la Mosson where Montpellier shipped three goals inside the opening 26 minutes of the affair.

Angers have been somewhat better of late as they managed to pick u p a 4-1 victory over Bordeaux in their previous home fixtures.

Gerald Baticle’s men also offered a strong performance last weekend at Metz but got unlucky to lose 1-0 at Stade Saint-Symphorien on the occasion.

Angers vs Montpellier Head-to-head

  • Montpellier have been much more successful in the history of this matchup, winning 10 and losing only 4 of the previous 22 meetings with Angers.
  • Montpellier won two and drew one of the last three clashes against Angers, a run that includes a 4-1 drubbing in December last year at Stade de la Mosson.
  • Both teams scored in each of the previous three head to head contests between these two rivals.

Angers vs Montpellier Prediction

Montpellier lost six and drew two of the previous eight Ligue 1 affairs. The lack of motivation is the main reason for such a poor run of form as La Paillade do not play defense at all these days.

This is why we fancy the home win pick at the 2.00 odds as well as the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the 1.61 as the main betting options here.

Angers vs Montpellier Betting Tips

  • Angers to win @ 2.00 (1/1)
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.61 (8/13) odd.
