Montpellier and Caen will square off at the Stade de la Mosson on Sunday at lunchtime, with both looking to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Montpellier only registered a nil-nil draw on the road at Rennes last weekend, despite the fact that the hosts had just one shot on target. Caen, on the other hand, have lost 0-1 at home against Marseille on Sunday, in a game in which they had several goal attempts. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Montpellier had a strong start to this Ligue 1 campaign, but their recent form has been awful. Montpellier have only won one of their last nine competitive fixtures. They head into this clash on the back of a six-game winless run, losing three in the process. The positive thing is that Montpellier have been much better on home soil this season, having lost just three of their eleven competitive matches.
Caen have also endured a mixed run of form over the past two months, having recorded four draws, four defeats and two wins in their last ten games across all competitions. They are winless in three league outings at the moment, losing the most recent two of these. This leaves Caen only in 16th spot in the Ligue 1 table, just one point clear of the relegation zone.
Although both sides have been in terrible shape of late, Montpellier have the home advantage in this one and they have been decent on home soil throughout the season. Our betting tips and predictions expect Montpellier to win at odds 1.65.

First Goalscorer odds
Andy Delort has played a vital role in Montpellier’s performance throughout this Ligue 1 season, having helped the team with seven goals and four assists. His most recent goal was towards the end of November 2018, but we fancy him to get back to goalscoring ways here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Andy Delort at odds 5.50.
