Match preview

The Paladins welcome OGC Nice to the Stade de la Mosson on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match. Montpellier’s 0-1 win in Nice back in November broke a run of eight consecutive home wins in this head to head.

Nice are the form team though and have the second-best away record in Ligue 1 this season, with 26 of their 49 points coming on the road. Only Marseille have more away points this season with 27.

Montpellier HSC come into the match on a run of two defeats in a row. They have picked up six points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

La Paillade lost their last league match away to FC Nantes. Expected goals of 1.6 to 0.2 in favour of Nantes indicates perhaps it was a fair result. The Les Pailladins fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance with their side failing to create any big chances nor a shot on target from inside the box in the match. The final score of the match was 2-0.

Teenager Sepe Elye Wahi has been in good form for Montpellier here lately with two goals in his last three home Ligue 1 appearances and is 2.75/1 to score against OGC Nice on Saturday.

Their opponent on Saturday, OGC Nice, come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated with clean sheets in each. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Eaglets had a shock win in their last league match at home to Paris Saint Germain. Expected goals of 1.2 to 0.7 in favour of Nice indicates it was likely a fair result. Andy Delort was the goalscoring hero as he scored the game’s only goal three minutes from full time for Nice. Delort now has seven league goals this season for Nice and is 2.75/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-0.

Nice have failed to score in each of their last two away league matches. Kasper Dolberg is the 2.4/1 favourite to make sure that doesn’t extend to three matches on Saturday.
