Monaco will look to build on their recent win in Ligue 1 when they host Montpellier at the Stade Louis II on Saturday night. Monaco barely managed to beat Caen 1-0 last weekend thanks to a second-half goal from Radamel Falcao. Meanwhile, Montpellier fought back from one-goal down to secure a 2-2 home draw against Rennes thanks to a brace from Andy Delort. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Monaco beat Caen 1-0 away from home last time out in Ligue 1, but that was their sole victory in the last two months. Soon after their triumph over Caen, Monaco lost 2-0 on the road at Atletico Madrid in their Champions League midweek clash. At home, the Monegasques are winless in nine competitive fixtures since a 1-0 victory against St. Etienne back in May.
Montpellier, on the other hand, have enjoyed an impressive Ligue 1 campaign so far this season. They find themselves third in the league table, just one point behind second-placed Lyon. Montpellier are currently on a two-game winless streak in Ligue 1, but overall they have lost just once in their last 13 league outings. Away from home, Montpellier were on a nine-game unbeaten run across all competitions prior to their 1-0 loss at Angers in their most recent trip.
We can’t see Monaco getting a result here as Montpellier looked amazing both home and away throughout this Ligue 1 season. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Montpellier Draw No Bet at odds 2.00.
