Our recommended bet for Sunday’s clash at The Stade de la Mosson comes in the form of a Monaco victory, with Wissam Ben Yedder first on the scoresheet.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £80 with Bet365.
Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of form are set to face off at The Stade de la Mosson in Ligue 1 on Sunday, October 9th.
The clash in question will see stuttering Montpellier play host to AS Monaco.
Starting with the former, Montpellier, after a productive opening to the campaign, featuring three wins from five and a remarkable seven 7-0 drubbing of Brest, have seen their form fall off in a major way of late.
La Paillade, all told, have now slipped to defeat in three of their last four league outings, a run which has seen them slip to mid-table in France’s top-flight.
The most recent of these losses came in their return to action on the back of the international break, last weekend.
A trip to Toulouse ultimately culminated in Olivier Dall’Oglio’s troops being put to the sword by four goals to two, despite their hosts on the day being reduced to ten men early in the 2nd-half.
One shining light amid another disappointing day’s work for Montpellier, though, came in the form of the latest performance put forth by prodigious youngster Elye Wahi, who, in rounding out the scoring at the Stadium Municipal, took his tally for the season to a none-too-shabby five goals.
Turning attentions towards Montpellier’s upcoming opponents, Monaco, in contrast, have looked back to their brilliant best of late.
The principality outfit are in the thick of a three-game win streak which, stretching back to the beginning of last month, features just a solitary defeat in seven across all competitions.
Such fine form comes largely owing to Philippe Clement’s side rediscovering their clinical edge in the final third, as evidenced by a haul of ten goals scored in their last three outings.
Keep an eye on Wissam Ben Yedder when it comes to potential goalscorers this weekend, too, with the French international in the midst of a scintillating individual spell in front of goal.
Back-to-back three-goal wins over Reims and Nantes mean that Monaco have climbed back into the thick of the race for Champions League football in Ligue 1, with we at 101, as a result, backing the Moneqasques to make it seven wins from eight at the expense of hosts Montpellier on Sunday afternoon.
