Goals Expected as Montpellier Play Host to Monaco
Montpellier made it five league games without a win as they drew 1-1 at home with Nantes last weekend. Monaco faired better than their hosts last time out, securing a 3-0 home win over Angers. Those results mean the gap between the two clubs is now up to 5pts, with Monaco sitting pretty in 4th spot and Montpellier occupying 8th position.
Games between these two clubs have been very competitive in recent seasons and there hasn’t been more than a 2-goal margin separating the duo since 2016. Both teams have scored in four of the last five encounters between Montpellier and Monaco in Ligue 1, so you can see why we’re backing goals in Friday’s clash for both teams.
The last two times Montpellier have played host to Monaco the pair have produced over 3.5 goals. Four of the host’s last six matches, as well as two of the visitor’s last three outings, have also produced over 3.5 goals, making it no surprise to hear that we are predicting that there will be lots of goalmouth action on Friday night.
We’re backing both teams to score in Friday’s game as clean sheets have been at a premium for both sides lately and both Monaco and Montpellier have been finding the back of the net on a regular basis. In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 3-2 win for Monaco, who head into this game as the form favourites. The visitors have scored 10-goals in their last three matches but have conceded two or more goals in four of their last six fixtures, while Montpellier have scored at least two goals in three of their last six league games.
