Montpellier vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 9th March 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier finally tasted victory after weeks of losing and drawing and one can wonder if it will the fire that the club need to start off a winning run and challenge for a European place?
The win came away to Bordeaux by 2-1 last weekend and it was much needed and the team from the South of France are now in 7th place and just 3 points behind 4th and Marseille, so there is everything to play for and they will be favourites to win this game.
As for Angers they are very safe in 12th place on 34 points but have gone the last two games without a win. Their last match was at home and it was an entertaining one as they drew 2-2 with in form Monaco. Away from home Angers have 14 points from a possible 39 and have won just 1 game in their past five matches.

Montpellier vs Angers: Prediction
A few weeks ago, we could have said this would be a difficult fixture for the home side. But the win last weekend has hopefully changed the teams attitude and now they are very close to making an impact on the top 4.
Angers do not travel well here and there is a significant difference in the quality of the teams.
For extra value we will back the home side to be winning at half time, we also like Gaetan Laborde to score anytime, he has been putting in some goals lately and is worth backing.
