Montpellier vs Toulouse
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 10th November 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier may have only lost 1 in their last four games, but they have also only won one and are drawing too many games of late. Indeed, they come into this match having drawn their last two in a row, last weekend they saw out a 2-2 match away to Metz.
They have 16 points and are in 11th place and the league is close at the moment that Montpellier are just 3 points behind Marseille in 4th!
Home form has been fantastic for the club though with just one loss and they have gone their last 5 matches here undefeated earning 13 points in the process. A recent 0-0 with Angers ended a 4-game winning streak here and they will want to return to those winning ways.
Toulouse are in some trouble in 19th place and have lost 50% of their games. They come into this match having lost back to back encounters against Rennes and Lyon with both of those games finishing in 3-2 defeats. For a team so low in the league scoring hasn’t been a problem and that could be a positive sign as they have netted 10 goals in their last five games.
The visitors have the 3rd worst away record in the league and are in fact still looking for their first win. They have conceded 13 goals so far which is the most for any away side in the league.
Montpellier vs Toulouse: Head to Head
Last season Montpellier won this fixture 2-1.
Montpellier have won the last 3 meetings home and away between the sides.
In 15 years, Toulouse have only won at Montpellier once which was in 2017 with that match finishing 1-0.
Montpellier vs Toulouse: Prediction
Montpellier have a good hold over Toulouse in recent games and the away side have a dreadful record at this ground. But the home side have not been winning games convincingly for us and the threat from Toulouse isn’t if they can pick up 3 points here but that they are scoring goals.
They could well score a few and still lose as their defence looks very leaky so for us and with research done we think that a good outcome is to back Toulouse to win on the handicap, the price will be decent value as they will be seen to be the outsiders to win this game anyway.
We say a larger stake than normal on this one and because of that make this our only selection from this game.
Montpellier vs Toulouse: Bet Tips:
Toulouse +1 Handicap at 1.91 (10/11) odd.
