Amiens welcome Montpellier at the Stade de la Licorne on Saturday evening, with both teams still looking for their first victory of this new Ligue 1 season. Amiens lost 2-0 at the hands of Lyon last weekend, in a game in which they had just one shot on target. Meanwhile, Montpellier threw away a one-goal lead following Mendes’ early goal to succumb to an unexpected 1-2 home loss against Dijon.

Betting Tips for the game
Amiens’ form over the past four months have been a mixed bag with four defeats, three wins and three draws in their last ten games across all competitions. The good news is that Amiens are now back in front of their fans where they have lost just two of their last ten fixtures. Furthermore, Amiens are undefeated in their seven home meetings with Montpellier across all competitions.
Montpellier have also struggled for fluency over the past few months, winning just three of their last ten fixtures. Similar to Amiens, Montpellier have also lost their Ligue 1 opener, which means that both sides will be looking for the first points of this new season. The positive fact is that Montpellier have been more than decent on the road towards the end of the previous Ligue 1 season, losing just once in eight trips.
Amiens hold the better head-to-head record in this tie and they have the home advantage here. We fancy them to secure a positive result here, so our betting tips and predictions would back Amiens to win or Draw at odds 1.57.

These two sides have scored just once between them in this new Ligue 1 season, and we can’t see too many goals in this one.

Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals at odds 1.47.

Giovanni Sio has failed to get on the scoresheet for Montpellier last weekend, but he is still the main player to watch here. He has played a vital part in Montpellier’s performance last season and we fancy him to score the opener here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Giovanni Sio at odds 6.00.
