Montpellier vs Amiens
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 5th May 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier)
Montpellier have to simply find a way how to better their last result which was a fantastic 3-2 victory over newly crowned champions PSG at this very stadium, and the club will be more than happy to have back to back games here.
The club have given themselves a slim chance of making Europe as that win took them to 6th place and they have 54 points, they are just 5 points from Saint Etienne with 4 games left to play. Also Montepellier are in brilliant form having won their last 3 games in a row.
This is a massive game for Amiens who are in 17th and have a 4 point advantage over Caen. That may look good but it will only take just one loss here and for Caen to win for the whole situation to have turned around. Amiens come here on the back of poor form having no wins in their last 5 games, 4 of those matches ending as draws.
On the road the club have the 2nd to worst record in the league where they have won just 2 games all season. Their last away game ended in a 3-2 defeat against Nantes.

Montpellier vs Amiens: Prediction
We can only see a Montpellier win here, they should be too strong for a poor Amiens side who have poor form and don’t travel well to this stadium. This will be our main bet and we believe that the home side will have most of the possession of the ball. This is why we also should be looking into Andy Delort to score at the weekend. He has been in superb form for Montpellier and should be able to get a goal against Amiens defence.
