Monaco look to move backinto the top four when they host Montpellier on Saturday night. Monaco will look to former Manchester United striker Dimitar BErbatov and Jao Mouthino who have both excited of late. Monaco have won twelve of the last fifteen to push themselves back into contention for a Champions League qualification spot. With their game against Arsenal in the last sixteen of the Champions League coming up this is a good chance for Monaco to get themselves on track for a strong finish this season. Manager Jardim has some young talent coming through and Martial will be a key player for Monaco for years to come, the question is can he form a productive partnership with Berbatov.
Montpellier struggled away from home earlier in the season losing four of their first six away games. Since December though Montpellier have played five and lost none including a 0-0 at PSG. Mounier and Barrios will be the key figures going forward as Montpellier's top scorer's. Only four points seperate Montpellier from Monaco and a win here would bring them to within a point. This is a big game for both teams and with both defence's looking extremely strong I am going to go with the unders.
Monaco have gone under in fourteen of their last fifteen games, Montpellier have gone under in four of their last five away games.
