Montpellier vs Amiens SC
Date: 4th November 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Montpellier ended the three-win streak last weekend when they fell to Rennes 0-1 at home.
La Paillade will have a nice opportunity to return back to the winning ways this Saturday when they play Amiens SC in the 12th round of Ligue 1.
Michel Der Zakarian can generally be thrilled with his team’s defensive displays as Montpellier have been very tough to break down in the recent weeks.
The goal they allowed to Rennes was the second they conceded in last seven matches, including a goalless draw with the star-studded PSG side at Stade de la Mosson.
The newly-promoted side had huge issues with the efficiency in the final third at the very start of the season, but they’ll come into this one with an improved confidence after snatching two wins and a draw in last three games in all competitions.
Christophe Pelissier will still have a mountain to climb in order to save the Unicorns in the elite and Stade de la Mosson is the place where they will hardly get any points.
Montpellier vs Amiens SC: Head to head
The two sides are about to take on each other for the first time since 2011 and their Coue de la Ligue clash which saw La Paillade advance after penalties (2-2 in the regular time).
Amiens have generally been more successful as they lead the tie by two wins, but their last victory came in January 2009.
Montpellier vs Amiens SC: Prediction
The visitors will hardly be able to create much in front of Montpellier’s goal and backing the hosts to keep a clean sheet should be the top betting option here.
The braver punters can try with the 1-0 correct score at 5.50 given that the host also lack a strong attacking potential at the moment.
