Monaco vs Montpellier
Date: Saturday, 01 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
The Red and Whites are disappointing this season. Their current state looks alarming for their management and fans. A win is needed for them at all costs.
The hosts are in the relegation zone; 19th to be exact with just 10 points. They lost 8 of their 14 league games and has only 2 wins in that same period. A whopping 22 goals have been conceded by them already, while scoring only 13 in return.
After a 16 match winless run, they finally got 3 points in the last league match against a struggling Caen side. The 1-0 win would have given them a ton of hope, as Thierry Henry won his first match as their manager. Under 2.5 goals were scored in total on 4 of their last 7 matches in all competitions. Four losses have come from their last 5 matches.
They are yet to win a match in front of their frustrated home fans. Henry may be looking at a possible exit from the managerial post soon. His side lost 4 of the 7 home matches in the league.
La Paillade had a great start to their league season. At present they are comfortably staying at third place in the points table. But a 2 math winless streak will have dimmed their morale a bit. From 14 matches they have won half and lost 2 also. A decent 22 goals have been scored by their forwards and the defense held strong conceding just 10.
They won and lost 2 games each from the last 5 fixtures and 4 of them had a final score with more than 2.5 goals in total.After an unbeaten run in away matches they finally lost a game against Angers. So they are looking to get back on track in this upcoming match.
The defense needs to step up for the hosts as soon as possible or else they may be looking at a possible goal fest on Sunday.
Monaco vs Montpellier: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Montpellier are yet to defeat the hosts in all the meeting between them.
- Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last 6 matches between them across all venues.

Monaco vs Montpellier: Prediction
Monaco lost their last 2 away matches without troubling the score. But those opponents had a strong defense. I thin at home they will score at least a goal against Montpellier. The away side has conceded in 3 of their recent 5 matches on the road also. Thus a be can be placed on both the teams to score with 1.90 odd.
With a poor defense like Monaco’s, I don’t see any chance for them to win. Maybe the best result they could get is a draw. But then with just 1 win, that too against Caen, they don’t have enough strength or morale to take on a top team like Montpellier. Thus a bet can be placed on an away win with 1.90 odd.
