Match Preview

Montpellier HSC come into the match on a run of three home league games without a win but have kept a clean sheet in each of their last two league matches. They have picked up seven points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

La Paillade won their last league match away to FC Girondins Bordeaux. Expected goals of 2.6 to 0.7 in favour of Bordeaux indicates Montpellier didn’t deserve all three points on the balance of chances created.

Thankfully, they were already 0-2 ahead when they were reduced to nine men early in the second half. Jonas Omlin saving a spot-kick for Montpellier was crucial to the win as it likely would have ignited a Bordeaux comeback. It was one of ten saves he made in a well-earned clean sheet. The final score of the match was 0-2.

Sepe Elye Wahi scored the opening and ultimately winning goal here. Elye Wahi is Montpellier HSC’s top scorer with eight goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 2.3/1 favourite to score against Stade Brestois on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, Stade Brestois, come into the match on a run of two defeats in a row. They have picked up seven points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Pirate Team lost their last league match away to SCO Angers. Expected goals of 1.2 to 0.6 in favour of Angers indicates that perhaps it was a fair result.

Lucien Agoume contributed to Brest’s downfall when he handed Angers a big chance from the penalty spot which they converted for the only goal of the game. The La Team Pirate fans will be more disappointed with the finishing with their side managing to get just two of the 16 shots on target; a meagre 12.5%. The final score of the match was 1-0.
