Nantes vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6th May 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: La Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes have been in terrible form and that continued last week when they lost to Lyon 2-0. This latest defeat meant that the Canaries slipped down to 10th place on 46 points and are now 6 points from 5th and the last European place. This is a nightmare for the team who were in pole position to take the place a few weeks ago.
Nantes will be hoping to get back to winning ways at home where their record is slightly better, losing just 1 game in their past four. The problem is that they are not winning games either but drawing instead. They have drew their last two games at home.
Montpellier have the same points as Nantes but because of goal difference are actually in 8th place. Like Nantes they are in poor form having lost 3 games in a row and have not won a game in the league since the beginning of April.
Away from home the club have actually won 50% of their total points and had gone on a 4 game unbeaten streak until they lost to Nice. The team have lost just 4 games all season on the road but have drawn 8 from 17 games.
Nantes vs Montpellier: Head to Head
- Home or away Nantes has won the last 4 games between the teams
- Earlier this season Nantes beat Montpellier 1-0 away
- Montpellier have just 1 victory in Nantes since 2004
Nantes vs Montpellier: Prediction
We will back Nantes for the win simply because they are long overdue a win. However both teams are in poor form but Nantes have always seemed to get wins over their opponents in recent seasons when it has mattered.
