Montpellier is hosting Monaco at Stade de la Mosson in round 20 in the French Ligue 1.
Montpellier is in terrible form at the moment, and they haven’t won any of their last 5 games while winning only 1 of their last 7 games. Luckily for Montpellier, they are still pretty high in the standings, in 8th place with 28 points, 31 scored goals, and 32 conceded goals. During their last 5 games, Montpellier has conceded 11 goals while scoring 6 goals. In their last Ligue 1 game, Montpellier was playing against Nantes at home, and they have had 47% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 2 big chances created, and 83% of the correct passes. After leading 1-0 at halftime, Montpellier has conceded a goal in the 51st minute, and this game ended in a 1-1 draw. Delort has been Montpellier’s best player this season with 8 goals and 5 assists, while Laborde added 6 goals and 5 assists. Savanier and Mavididi are both in quarantine, and they will miss this game. Montpellier is safe, and they will stay in Ligue 1 for another season, but I just don’t see them getting to the Europa League spot.
Monaco is doing well at the moment, and they have won 3 of their last 4 games, while 1 game ended in a draw. During this streak, Monaco has scored impressive 11 goals while conceding only 4, which is a clear sign of improvement on the defensive end. Monaco is now in 4th place with 33 points, 36 scored goals, and 27 conceded goals. Monaco is 6 points away from the Champions League spot, but there are enough games left in the season for them to climb the standings. Monaco was hosting Angers in their last Ligue 1 game, and they were the better team with 55% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in the first half and 2 more in the second half, Monaco has deservedly won this match 3-0. Monaco is one of the best offensive teams in the league so far this season, and Volland is their leading goalscorer with 9 goals and 3 assists. Ben Yedder has added 7 goals and 4 assists. Luis and Onyekuru are in quarantine, while Fabregas is still questionable for this game. Monaco has finally found their game, and they are playing well on both ends, and see them eventually getting to the Champions League spot this season.
When playing at home, Montpellier has not lost to Monaco in their last 3 games, but Montpellier also hasn’t won any of their last 5 games, and their last 4 home games in a row. Monaco is the better team here, and in better form, and the trends are on their side, I will take Monaco on the road here.
