Nantes vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 31st August 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes seem to be improving game by game after they started the season with a 2-1 loss at Lille. Lille were strong last season but have lost key players and it was thought that Nantes would have had a chance in that game.
However, the club also known as the Canaries have bounced back and followed up the defeat with a draw against Marseille and then a victory by 2-1 away to Amiens.
Nantes will fancy their chances at home in this match and for them it will be important to make playing at home like a fortress. They are yet to win at home this season and it is what the fans will be waiting for.
Montpellier started the season poorly by losing to Rennes 1-0 at home, although Rennes look like a decent outfit this season. But all of this came to a head when in midweek they stunned Lyon and beat them 1-0 at Stade de la Mosson. It was a great victory and could be a turning point in the clubs season, although this does look like a tricky fixture.
The club are much like Nantes and the reality of the situation is that most of their points will come at home.

Nantes vs Montpellier: Prediction
This game will tell us a lot about Montpellier, can they take their victory over Lyon into this game or will they revert back to the poor form of before?
The quality levels of the teams are much the same and that is why we are going to back the draw. It is risky, but alongside us also wanting to back the correct score, there is plenty of value here and for minimum stakes in this type of game it could make sense.
Both teams will have equal chances and we don’t expect any one team to dominate.
