Note: Game odds are often unsteady so we recommend that you visit the bookmaker for the latest prices.

Goals Expected on Both Sides

Nice has kept only one clean sheet in the last ten games in all competitions. The hosts suffered a shock loss to relegation bound Dijon last weekend and now faces an even trickier fixture against Montpellier. The visitors have scored at least one goal in nine of the last ten games, and there is a good chance they will score in this game. Nice has only failed to score once at home in previous encounters with Montpellier.

Draw at Full-Time

We expect a tough game when Nice hosts Montpellier. The visitors bagged the reverse fixture with a scoreline of 3-1. Coming into this fixture, Montpellier is 8th on Ligue 1 table and have lost a game in their last 16 fixtures in all competitions. However, a strong opposition is expected from Nice. The hosts have 6 victories in seven home meetings with Montpellier. But because Nice has had some defensive drawbacks, we feel the best they can get in this game in a point.

Less than Three Goals at Fulltime

Another good bet in this game is fewer than three goals. We expect Montpellier to keep their unbeaten run and stretch it to 17 matches in all competitions. The visitors have not been conceding a lot of goals since February. And while the hosts look vulnerable at the back, they are looking for points in the second encounter with Montpellier this season. The hosts are also hoping to deny Montpellier a win at home since 2012. This should be a low scoring fixture.

Match Preview: Will Nice get their Revenge in the Second Meeting of the Season?

Revenge for Nice looks good on the books. However, Montpellier doesn’t look like the team to beat easily in this fixture. So, how do the stats look like?

Nice

Nice managed to score a goal in the reverse fixture despite losing 3-1 to Montpellier. And with an unbeaten home record to defend since 2012, we expect strong opposition from Nice despite losing to Dijon last weekend. The hosts have lost only once in their last six Ligue 1 fixtures but we don’t think beating Montpellier, a team that is stronger defensively, will be easy.

Montpellier

With 16 games unbeaten run, Montpellier is having a good run towards the end of the season. Expecting them to finish the season on a high note is, therefore, plausible. A massive win against Nice in the reverse fixture and a good run since February means Montpellier is not the team to lose this fixture. If they cannot collect all the three points, at least a draw looks favourable to the visitors.
