There are never any quiet moments at Montpellier FC and you never know what you are going to get. They can be frustrating sometimes because of it because the way the club play they should be finishing in a European place.
On Saturday evening they will take on Nice in a south of France derby game that has no love lost and sparks should really fly in this one.
The home side lost their last game against Nantes but have also beaten Lyon and drew with Bordeaux and that loss over Nantes was away from home. At home they did lose to Rennes but overall they are set to be a difficult team to beat here.
Nice did well in their last game before the break and beat Rennes 2-1 who had up till then been unbeaten. Nice have started the season well with 3 wins from 4 games and are in 4th place with 9 points the same as PSG and only separated on goal difference.
Away from home Nice have beaten Nimes and Rennes and performed well on the road, this match could be high scoring as both teams should set up to play attacking football.
Montpellier vs Nice: Head to Head
The last 3 meetings have all had the same correct score of 1-0.
Nice have not won at Montpellier since 2016.
There is an 80% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Montpellier vs Nice: Prediction
Our choice for this game is to see the away win on the double chance. This will be able to cover us in case the game is a draw because we expect a very close match.
Nice have been terrific so far and coach Patrick Vieira has the club playing good, direct football with a lot of obvious confidence in the team.
Montpellier will have plenty of chances but they are still feeling their way around this season and may not settle down for a few more weeks yet. Nice are on great form and we should follow them.
Montpellier vs Nice: Bet Tips:
Double Chance: Nice win or draw at 1.91 (10/11)
Half Time: A draw at 2.00 (1/1).
