Montpellier vs Nantes: Preview and Predictions

Montpellier vs Nantes French Ligue 1 Predictions 9th September 2017

Montpellier vs Nantes
French Ligue 1 – Season 2017/18
Date: Saturday, 9th September 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.

It’s game week 5 of French Ligue 1 and we’re to see a duel between Montpellier and Nantes at Stade de la Mosson. We are hardly going to see a lot of action or high-scoring affair.


After 4 weeks, Montpellier sits at the 12th place in the league table with 4 points. They managed to win only the season opening match. Last round, they visited Dijon and returned home without points. The match ended with a score of 2 – 1. Sio scored the goal for the tie, but Dijon nevertheless came out as winners.


Previous round didn’t change a thing for Nantes. With the same four points and the same goal difference, they still sit at the 15th place in the league table. They hosted Lyon and the match ended as a goal-less draw. Still, that’s not a bad thing at all. Since they had been underrated, it’s great they managed to keep their sheets clean.

Montpellier vs Nantes: Head to head

They are pretty much tied when it comes to their head to head encounters in general. During the previous season, Nantes came out as winners both times. At Stade de la Mosson, they won with a score of 2-3. They haven’t tied since 2013.

Montpellier vs Nantes: Prediction

Both teams appear to be in a rather poor shape. It seems that the outcome of the match is uncertain, so it would be safer betting on the goals. Both of them have presented themselves as low-scoring teams recently. Nantes have scored only one goal since the beginning of the season, and Montpellier three. Based on that, less than three goals are to be expected.
