Montpellier had the chance to climb up the table in midweek but they were thwarted by Marseille and lost the game 3-1, this was the clubs seventh defeat of the season.

Montpellier come into this game in 9th place with 27 points and being 12 points from the top we can conclude that their faint title chances are over but they will fight hard to try and qualify for Europe next season.

But the club are in poor form and have lost back to back games and haven’t won any for their last four in a row. At home they have claimed just 12 points from a possible 27 and have lost their last 3 in a row.

Nantes are in trouble and have slipped to 17th place. They are just three points from being dropped into the relegation zone.

Nantes drew 0-0 in midweek against Rennes which was seen as a good result as they had been struggling but the club have no wins in their last 5 games. Away form is poor and Nantes has the 2nd to worst in the league with just 5 points earned from 27. They have lost their last 3 away games in a row.

Montpellier vs Nantes Prediction

It’s possible to see two things change for this game. The first is that Montpellier stop their dreadful home form and record a win. The second is to see more goals in this fixture.

Montpellier have not always got the right results but at the same time they are not goal shy.

Nantes have a decent record over their opponents but they look like they have gone a few levels down and we will tip the home side to get the win here and try to get back their early season form.
