Montpellier vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st February 2021
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.

Montpellier have their hopes rested on trying to qualify for Europe however they are in 9th place but are only three points from a European position.

The club have not started the year well but they have gone their last 3 games unbeaten and have won their last 2 games in a row. Last weekend Montpellier beat Lyon 2-1 in a huge result for the club and they will come into this match with a lot of confidence.

Montpellier beat Dijon 4-2 in their last home game and that ended a poor run of results at Stade de la Mosson and the club has lost seven times here from just 13 games, that’s a poor return at home.

Rennes have 38 points and are three points clear of their hosts. It’s unlikely that even if they lose that Montpellier can pass Rennes because of goal difference.

As for the away side they are a huge 11 points behind 4th place so their best position does look like where they are. Recent form has been poor with no wins in their last four games and last weekend they lost at home 2-0 against Saint Etienne.

Away form for Rennes has been very solid and they have lost just once with 5 wins and 5 draws. The clubs last away game ended in a draw against Lens.

Montpellier vs Rennes: Prediction

Rennes have had the better of Montpellier in the last few years and for that we could call them the favourites.

However current form is not at its best and Montpellier have picked up and if they set the pace and are bullish in this game then they have every chance to get a victory.

It should be a close contest and because of that backing on this game is great as the odds are very open. We will back the home side to get the victory.
