Monaco vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 24th October 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
This is a game where we have two teams from the south of France going head to head on this early evening game on Sunday evening.
Monaco are in 10th place and started the season slowly but had a great few weeks which included 3 wins in a row. However they had a reality check last weekend as they were beaten 2-0 at Lyon. This has been a tough season already for the club but they will know their limitations and try to forge ahead and finish at least in a European place.
Monaco beat PSV in the UEFA Conference League in midweek away from home and that was an excellent win for the club so it will add even more confidence ahead of this game.
Montpellier have blown hot and cold this season and come into this game in 13th place and have 13 points. They would go above Monaco with victory here. Form is mixed because even though they have just 1 defeat in their last five games their results have been littered with draws.
Last weekend though Montpellier beat Lens who are in 2nd place with a 1-0 victory but away from home they have the 3rd to worst record and are still searching for their first victory.
Monaco vs Montpellier Head to Head
- Last season the clubs drew 1-1 in this fixture.
- It’s been 4 games since Montpellier beat Monaco and away from home it’s been 3 years.
- 5 from the last six fixtures has seen both sides to score.
Monaco vs Montpellier Prediction
This will be quite a game with lots of goal mouth action and we will be backing both teams to score.
Montpellier may feel they have a slight advantage because Monaco had to travel to the Netherlands in midweek while they could rest.
But Monaco at home will be strong and the team seem in very good spirits so we will back them to win. Wissam Ben Yedder has been scoring goals again and getting more game time so we will back him to score in this game also.
