Reason For Monaco vs Montpellier Predictions

  • Monaco won their last home game but it was a lucky victory over Angers, with the visitors having the lion’s share of the chances.
  • Before this, Monaco had lost each of their last three games in the principality, with eight conceded.
  • Montpellier have won six of their last nine games in all competitions but have an awful away record, with just two wins all season on the road.
  • The visitors are unbeaten in their last three clashes with Monaco, winning two and drawing one.

Monaco showing grit but lacking quality

Robert Moreno’s Monaco have finally managed to get some grit into their performances, winning their last two matches despite not playing their best football. They trailed with five minutes to go last week against Amiens but managed to eventually win 2-1 through goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Islam Slimani. This followed their previous victory over Angers (1-0) and Monaco have now clambered up to seventh in Ligue 1.

However, as has been mentioned, these victories have hardly been well-deserved. Despite the recent victory at home to Angers, Monaco have not been enjoying themselves at the Stade Louis II, with three defeats in their last four in the principality. They’ve conceded eight in this time and will need to be careful, as they have another difficult opponent coming over the hill in the shape of Montpellier. 

Montpellier’s awful away record

Michel Der Zakarian’s side got back on track last week as they edged past Saint-Étienne 1-0. It was a welcome result for the team that had rather unexpectedly gone three games without a win, despite beginning 2020 on a high. They scored an early winner through Andy Delort but had to endure a lot of pressure to come away with the three points.

However, Montpellier will have to play with the setback that is their awful away record here. Despite winning six of their last nine matches in all competitions, Der Zakarian’s men have really struggled with playing on the road. They sit fifth in Ligue 1 but would be drifting just above the relegation zone if the table were decided on away results.

They’ve won just two of their 14 away games this season, both coming against weak opponents in relegation-battlers Amiens and amateur side Reims Sainte-Anne; in their last two outings they also lost 5-0 to PSG and were knocked out of the cup by fourth-tier Belfort.

Visitors capable of edging this?

Montpellier have a good record against Monaco, though, with a draw and two wins in the last three clashes.

And with neither side in glowing form, we think it’ll be a tight match here, especially considering the winner would take a massive step towards European qualification. We’re going to back this to finish 1-1 as both sides have been in solid scoring form but we’re also going to go for a double chance bet in favour of the visitors.

Montpellier haven’t been great on the road but we feel they’re a much more settled outfit than this Monaco squad, who are still finding their feet under Moreno and were very lucky in their last two games.
