Montpellier vs Amiens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
In some ways Montpellier have very little to complain about they are in 6th place with 20 points and only 5 points from a possible Champions League place, everything is calm, and they are pursuing a European finish.
However, at the same time they are not winning nearly enough games evidenced in the fact that they have drawn 3 of their last 4 games. The good news is that they have not lost a game in Ligue 1 in 5 weeks.
The club also has the 4th best home record where from 21 points they have won 16- that’s impressive and Amiens will be quaking in their boots about that. From their last 15 home points Montpellier have picked up 13.
Amiens are in 16th place, 10 whole places behind Montpellier but the interesting thing is that if they were to win this game, they would be just one point behind them, that’s how close it is at the moment in the league.
Clearly Amiens are on poor form and in their last game they lost 4-0 at home against Strasbourg. The club have conceded 7 goals in their last two games.
On the road Amiens have a poor record with just 1 win all season and from their last 4 games have drawn 3 and lost one. They are almost conceding on average 2 goals a game.
Montpellier vs Amiens: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
Amiens have not beaten Montpellier away from home since 2006.
In the league the teams have only met each other 4 times in recent years where there is a 100% record to see over 2.5 goals.
Montpellier vs Amiens: Prediction
We can’t ignore the 100% success rate in the league to see both teams to score and that will be a choice. We will also back Montpellier to get the win here.
Amiens are in poor form and that must have hit their confidence and whilst they will try to keep the score respectable because they are conceding too many goals lately, we don’t think they will be able to ask too many questions of their hosts.
Finally, Montpellier have a superb home record, so everything really does point to a home win.
Montpellier vs Amiens: Bet Tips:

Both teams to score at 2.00 (1/1).
