Nice vs Montpellier
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 7th April 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera (Nice).
Nice are still chasing a European spot but after having shaky form they have made life more difficult for themselves. They are in 8th place on 44 points and 5 points from a Europa League place currently.
It has not been a good period for the club with just 2 wins in their past five and they struggled to beat Dijon last weekend who are bottom of the league finally prevailing 1-0. Back at home Nice will be expecting all three points and they have won 4 of their last 5 home games where overall they have gained 24 points from 42.
Montpellier are also going for Europe and they are one place ahead of Nice in 7th place and 1 point ahead of them so this comes down to being a crunch match.
They won their last game 2-0 over Montpellier but like Nice they have dropped too many points recently and made life difficult for themselves. Away from home Montpellier has the 4th best record in the league but recent form is poor where they have won just 1 away game in their past 5.
Nice vs Montpellier: Head to Head
Earlier this season in the reverse fixture Montpellier won 1-0.
Last season Nice won this fixture 1-0.
Montpellier have not won here since 2012.
Nice vs Montpellier: Prediction
This is another game which is very close to call. Both teams objectives are Europe and we have to side with the home team to get the win here. Nice’s form at home has been very strong and Montpellier’s recent away form is just too poor to trust them.
But both teams were much better equipped for the win in these type of matches earlier in the season, they both look faitgued. But despite that we will back Nice to get over the line and get the win.
