Montpellier vs Monaco
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 5th October 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier come into this game in 10th place even though they have won 3 games already in the season, but they have a real mix to them, and they are usually very good or very average. The clubs last game ended in a 1-0 loss away to Strasbourg.
At home they have 3 wins and one loss, but the important thing to remember is that they have those three wins in a row. They have already beaten the likes of Lyon, Nice and Nimes here and have conceded just 2 goals at home.
Monaco have suddenly improved, and it was long overdue after being poor for so long. The change happened when they drew 0-0 at Reims and then followed that up with an excellent 3-1 win over Nice in the derby match and then last weekend, they smashed Brest 4-1 to score 7 goals in their last two games.
The club have climbed to 12th place and a win here would take them above Montpellier. However away from home Monaco are yet to win with one defeat and two draws.
Montpellier vs Monaco: Head to Head
Last season this game ended 2-2.
Since 2015 Monaco have only won once away to Montpellier.
There is a 40% chance to see over 3.5 goals.
Montpellier vs Monaco: Prediction
This should be a very exciting match with lots of good play from both sides and incident. Monaco have improved lately but this is a big test as Montpellier have been very strong at home.
Having said that Monaco seemed to have changed, they are playing their wingers to good effect getting them down the by-lines and are not afraid to play. It is a little risky but we will back the visitors to get all three points and we will also concentrate on the goal scorers market as we do expect to see a few goals scored on Saturday evening.
