Montpellier vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier have already proven that they will be very difficult to beat at home with 2 wins here already and against quality teams in the shape of Nice and Lyon. They were beaten 3-1 and 2-1 respectively and the club have made a real statement at the beginning of the season, even if they do not travel so well. Of course that will not matter as they have the luck to play their 3rd game at home in a row when they take on Angers.
Montpellier are currently in 5th place and they could jump into the top 3 with a win depending on other results around them and they will be the favourites to win this game.
Angers have done well, winning 2 of their 3 games so far. They look like a team though that may face some inconsistency problems, for example beating Reims at home but losing to Bordeaux at the same stadium, but they are plugging away and won’t be an easy team to play against. They come into this match in 9th place with the same points as Montpellier.
Montpellier vs Angers: Head to Head
- The last two games when Montpellier have been the home team has ended in a draw.
- Angers have not won at Montpellier in the league since 2015.
- There is a 70% chance there will be under 2.5 goals.
Montpellier vs Angers: Prediction
Even though Montpellier have a better team than Angers and have for some time the games between the clubs have been very close.
However we feel on this occasion that Montpellier will have too much for their opponents. We have to respect when they can beat clubs like Nice and Lyon who could be challenging for European places this season.
Montpellier have a nice attacking line up and goals in them, they have scored 5 goals in their last two home games and we fancy them to get a win at the weekend.
We are surprised to see Montpellier are a very good price to win this game, so the markets are really open and we think a home win is very good value.
