Montpellier vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Stade de la Mosson, Montpellier
Montpellier have seen a thrashing 5-1 loss at PSG end their six-game unbeaten streak, now hosting Reims for their Matchday 26 clash in search of important points to challenge the top 4 once again, hoping to show off their character at Stade de la Mosson once again!
La Palliade have still struggled to turn clashes their way as we saw them hold Lyon and Monaco to draw in last three outings at this ground, beating Caen 2-0 along the way. Michel Der Zakarian will now want his men to pick it up in the final third and we do see them making it happen in front of the home crowd.
Reims will be no easy side to beat in Montpellier, though, promising a strong challenge after beating Guingamp, Marseille, Rennes and only held to a 1-1 draw at Toulouse along the way. They’ve been led by Remi Oudin up front who confirms his fine form with five goals in eight appearances in 2019, which has many holding faith the visitors will find the net at Stade de la Mosson as well.
Montpellier vs Reims: Head-to-head
Montpellier snatched a narrow 0-1 win at Reims earlier this term, with a late winner from Oyongo.
La Palliade thus connected their fourth consecutive win in head-to-head clashes in a streak going back as far as March 2015.
Reims last beat the rivals back in 2014 despite some very tough challenges along the way.
Montpellier vs Reims: Prediction
We will now back Montpellier to their fifth consecutive win over Reims, sticking with them to secure a return to the winning ways and going for a Home win at 2.20 – which looks great value despite a great disappointment seen last week.
However, we feel they’ll have to outgun the rivals to secure the points and we’re backing Reims to show off their fine form up front once again, sticking our necks out for a YES on Both teams to score as well – which comes at 2.20 and has caught the eye of many in the know.
