Montpellier vs Troyes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 12th May 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Montpellier did beat Nantes last weekend, but then again every club is beating Nantes right now but it didn’t help the club too much. The reason is that before the Nantes win they lost 3 matches in a row which put paid to a possible Europa League qualification. Montpellier remain one of the most unpredictable teams in Ligue 1 where you never know what performance the team will give.
At home for example the club have the 4th worst home record in the league, however they have only lost 5 matches. The problem is that they have drawn 8 matches and draws have really held back the club this season.
For Troyes they have the worry of relegation. In 19th place they really need to win this match and it’s very possible with no points collected here the team will be relegated or at best have to play a play off match with a Ligue 2 side.
Troyes have the worst away record in the league where they have lost 14 games from 18 played. They come into this game having lost their last 3 games in a row.
Montpellier vs Troyes: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here Montpellier won 4-1
- Montpellier won at Troyes this season by beating them 1-0
- Troyes have not won at Montpellier for 14 years
Montpellier vs Troyes: Prediction
Montpellier should have too much quality for Troyes and we do expect a home win, but to get better odds we will back them to be winning the match at half time. We also think there will be few goals as Troyes will really battle in this game to make it difficult and so we could see the game open more in the 2nd half.

Highest scoring half: 2nd half at 2.05.
