Montpellier vs Nice
France- Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 22nd September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
The heat will be on in the south of France when these two teams lock horns on Saturday night.
Montpellier have found some good form after they lost their opening game and have gone the last 4 games unbeaten. However they are still waiting for their first win at Stade de la Mosson as from 3 games they have lost 1 and drawn 2. Currently they are in 6th place and 7 points behind PSG.
The pressure was really on Nice coach Patrick Vieira after his side did not win a game for their first 3 games. But they are starting to turn that around and have won their last 2 games. Their first win of the season was eye catching as they beat Lyon away from home and they followed that up with a 2-1 win at home to Rennes. After a problem start the fans are now backing Nice and Vieira to do well.
Montpellier vs Nice: Head to Head
- Last season Montpellier won this match 2-0.

- 4 of the last 5 matches have seen the correct score at half time 0-0.
Montpellier vs Nice: Prediction
Montpellier are the favourites to win this game and we will go with that. They will start to win games at home and even if Nice come into this game with some more confidence to them, Montpellier remains a tricky team to beat at their home.
We don’t expect to see many goals as both teams will be tight in defence and most of the play will be played in midfield. The home side’s objective will be to get the result even if it is not easy on the eye.
