Nantes vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: 6 March 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau.

Nantes host Montpellier in an exciting 27th round clash between two top-half sides in Ligue 1 standings on Sunday afternoon at Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau.

Nantes ended their three-win streak across competitions with a goalless draw away at relegation-threatened Metz last weekend.

The team led by Antoine Kombouare failed to deliver up front without their main creator Moses Simon in the squad.

The talented Nigerian midfielder missed the last weekend’s match for personal reasons but is expected to feature here against Montpellier.

Kombouare can, however, be thrilled with his team’s strong defensive form as Nantes allowed only two goals in the last six outings across competitions despite playing PSG in the process.

Nantes inflicted the second loss of the season on PSG in their previous home fixture in Ligue 1, celebrating an impressive 3-1 victory at Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau two weeks ago.

Montpellier will enter the tie in a completely opposite mood. They lost four of the last five matches across competitions.

The latest failure came last Friday when La Paillade shipped four goals in the home fixture against Rennes (2-4).

Montpellier also lost two of the last three away outings in Ligue 1, conceding three goals to Strasbourg and Saint-Etienne each in the process.

Nantes vs Montpellier Head-to-head

  • Montpellier will enter this tie unbeaten in the last three meetings with Nantes, a streak that saw La Paillade win two and draw one.
  • Five of the last six head to head encounters between the two teams ended with fewer than three goals scored.
  • Nantes have a fantastic home record against La Paillade. They won 12, drew 3, and lost 4 of the last 19 home clashes against Montpellier.

Nantes vs Montpellier Prediction

Nantes are enjoying a fabulous home form. They have won five games on the trot in all competitions in front of the home crowd.

Since Montpellier lost four of their previous five affairs across competitions, we will back Nantes to win at the 2.10 odds. You can also pick Nantes to score at least two goals on Sunday at the odds of 2.20.
