Match preview

The Canaries welcome Montpellier HSC to the Stade de la Beaujoire on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. These sides share a remarkably even record in Ligue 1. Their 50 meetings have seen 18 Nantes wins, 18 Montpellier wins and 14 draws.

However, home advantage seems to play a crucial role when these sides face each other. This is reflected in 14 of Nantes' 18 wins coming here, with only four away wins here for Montpellier.

FC Nantes come into the match on a run of five home league games undefeated. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

La Maison Jaune’s last league match, away to FC Metz, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 0.6 to 0.3 in favour of Nantes indicates both teams probably deserved only a point.

The Les Canaris fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance with their side. Despite having 12 shots in the match, they failed to create any big chances.

Randal Kolo Muani is FC Nantes’s top scorer with nine goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.25/1 to score against Montpellier HSC on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, Montpellier HSC, come into the match having picked up six points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Paladins lost their last league match at home to Stade Rennais FC. Expected goals of 1.8 to 1.2 in favour of Rennes indicates perhaps it was a fair result even if the scoreline was a tad harsh.

Montpellier battled back from going 0-2 behind in the opening quarter-hour to go in all square at halftime thanks to goals from Ambroise Oyongo and Sepe Elye Wahi. However, rather than keep that momentum in the second half, they conceded from a penalty after the break and got picked off late on pushing for an equaliser. The final score of the match was 2-4.
