Montpellier vs Caen
Coupe de France
Date: Sunday 19th January 2020
Kick off at 16:15 UK/ 17:15 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier will be the favourites to make it to the round of 16 when they face off against Caen on Sunday.
Even though Caen are now in Ligue 2 and Montpellier in Ligue 1 the clubs know each other very well as Caen spent many years in the top tier.
Montpellier reached this stage after they beat Chatillions a 6th tier side 1-0. It was a poor result from Montpellier, who did make a few changes but played quality like Andy Delort and Gaetan Laborde and were lucky in the end to get the win.
In the league Montpellier are 6th and doing well and have won their last two games in a row.
Caen reached the last 32 after they beat ASI from the 7th tier of French football 6-0. In Ligue 2 they have had a poor season though and are currently in 15th position. They have won just one game in their past five matches.

Montpellier have scored 7 goals past Caen in the past 3 meetings.
Montpellier vs Caen: Prediction
Montpellier have been strong at home this season and won 70% of their games losing just twice. Caen have won just two games on the road and have a poor away record. If Montpellier put in a performance like they did in the last round they won’t win this game. But they just underestimated their opponent and we think that they can score a few goals in this game. They are odds on to win so we will take them to win this on the handicap and try and show their superiority.
