Montpellier vs Nice: Match Preview and Prediction
Montpellier vs Nice: Montpellier hopes to improve on their 2-1 Ligue 1 loss to Rennes. Montpellier had 51% of the play and only one of their 17 efforts on goal was on target. Téji Savanier scored for Montpellier in the 73rd minute. Two of Rennes’ nine shots were on target. Rennes scored with Arnaud Kalimuendo (48′) and Martin Terrier (3′).
The coaching of Michel Der Zakarian has resulted in Montpellier scoring an average of 1.33 goals per game during the course of their most recent six matches, during which they have scored eight goals. It is important to note that Montpellier has scored eight goals.
Nice and Brest drew 0-0 in their Ligue 1 matchup the previous time around. Nice had 47% of the play in that game and only had none of their 13 total shots on goal go in. Brest, on the other hand, had 17 total attempted shots at goal, none of which went in.
A remarkably low number of goals have separated Nice from the opposition in five of the last six games in which they have played. During that time, Les Aiglons averaged 1 goal per game, while the overall average goal scored per game was a pitiful 1.67.
Montpellier vs Nice: Betting Analysis
When Lille and Ligue 1 rivals Groupama Stadium met in November of last year, Lille emerged victorious, 2-0. In their last three meetings with Lyon, Lille has not lost. Less than three goals were scored in the final result of four of the previous six head-to-head matches between Lyon and Lille.
For the entire season, Lyon has had trouble maintaining silence at the back. They will, however, enter this tie in a strong position. On Sunday night, they restricted Marseille to just one attempt on goal. Lille, who has the second-best defensive record in Ligue 1 this year, will now face them.
Only in second place, Nice has conceded fewer goals in 20 league games this season than Lille (17 goals). Lille hasn’t let up a goal in five straight games in all competitions. The under 2.5 goals FT bet at 2.05 odds is the one we must choose.
The home court advantage should be huge. Lille won only two of 10 away Ligue 1 games this season. Lyon won their last four league games in front of their fans. Lyon also has a winning home record against Lille. Lyon to win or draw double chance is the second bet at 1.53.
