Montpellier vs Bordeaux – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Montpellier welcome Bordeaux at the Stade de la Mosson on Sunday at lunchtime, with both sides looking to continue their decent Ligue 1 campaign. Montpellier only managed a 1-1 away draw at Guingamp a fortnight ago despite the fact that the hosts were in ten men after the first seven minutes of the game. Bordeaux, on the flip side, won 3-0 at home against Nantes thanks to a brace from Francois Kamano and another goal from Yann Karamoh.

Betting Tips for the game
Montpellier head into this clash on the back of an eight-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1, winning four and drawing four in this term. This leaves Montpellier 4th in the standings tied on 16 points with third-placed Marseille. In addition, Montpellier are undefeated in four home league games at the moment, winning the most recent two of these.
Bordeaux also managed to put their Ligue 1 campaign back on track of late, having won three and drawn two of their last five games. Sandwiched in-between these results, Les Girondins have suffered two consecutive defeats in the Europa League. The most worrying fact is that Bordeaux have won just once in their last six competitive trips.
It’s difficult to separate these two sides at the moment as both have enjoyed a strong run of form in Ligue 1 of late. However, Montpellier looked solid on home soil of late, so our betting tips and predictions expect Montpellier at odds 2.00.

Montpellier have won two of their last four meetings with Bordeaux in Ligue 1. They have suffered just one defeat in nine league outings so far this season, while winning four in this term. Montpellier should be able to maximize their home advantage in this one, as Bordeaux have been poor on the road throughout this Ligue 1 season. Our preview fancies Montpellier at odds 2.00.
