Form is decent with no losses in their last five games but they have already drawn 4 games from their opening 9, just a few of these converted to wins would have easily seen the team in 2nd place. At home they have lost just one game and they have gone their last 4 unbeaten here.

Bordeaux are in 7th place and like their hosts have started the season well. Indeed a win here would see them leapfrog Montpellier in the standings. The club are in good having won 3 of their last 4 games and remain unbeaten for the last 6 weeks. Away form is not great but they are on a run of 2 games unbeaten on the road.

Montpellier vs Bordeaux: Prediction

Here we have the case of two very good teams coming together and we should get an entertaining match. Both have aspirations for European football next season and both at this early stage are willing to take risks to get all three points.

That means that we should see a good match with plenty of chances and goals. None of these teams can focus on the league which PSG will inevitably win so this is the next best thing to bring their A game to this match.

It’s a big surprise for us to see the great value prices on our betting tips given the quality that will be on the field of play and the history of this fixture. Which makes this one of the best Ligue 1 bets of the weekend.
