Montpellier vs Angers Prediction
Michel Der Zakarian’s men have been alternating between wins and defeats in their previous four Ligue 1 clashes, the last of which saw them at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard against Reims. Be that as it may, it needs saying that all of their wins in those aforementioned fixtures, came on home soil.
The hosts are currently sporting a very impressive four-match winning streak at home, with their only defeat so far coming against Rennes by a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
Angers, on the other hand, are fifth in the table, two points above foes Montpellier. The guests, however, are experiencing a sharp decline in form at the moment and will be making the trip to Stade de la Mosson on the back of a dismal two-match losing streak.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been garnering most of their points from their clashes at home. On the road, Angers have admitted defeat in three of their previous four outings. The most recent of which was by a hefty 4-0 scorecard at the hands of PSG.
To make matters even worse, the visiting contingent have not registered a win in their last three trips here. With an impressive winning streak at hand, the Montpellier faithful have every reason to have their hopes up this weekend.
Furthermore, the hosts have looked sharp right from the off, and have scored a goal or more before the break, in their last four games here. Their previous three head to head clashes at this stadium have also witnessed the deadlock broken in the opening forty-five minutes.
As such, it is certainly safe to expect a goal or more, prior to the restart in this one.
