Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Montpellier win
Odds: 8/5 @ Bet 365
Arguably Ligue 1’s surprise package so far this season, high flyers Montpellier will travel to a struggling Angers side on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, after spending large spells of last season flirting with the relegation zone, it appears that Angers are in for a similar campaign this time around. Coming off the back of a 4-3 loss away to Saint-Etienne last weekend, Stéphane Moulin’s side have now lost their last three matches on the bounce. Also now holding a one-point buffer over the drop zone, Angers have also failed to record a win since the 25 of September. Along with losing both fixtures with Montpellier last season, the hosts have failed to win any of their last five matches on home soil.
In contrast to the hosts, the visitors will firmly have their sights set on booking a return to European football. Coming off the back of a very impressive 3-0 win over Marseille last time out, Montpellier are now unbeaten in their last 11 Ligue 1 outings, a run stemming back to the 11th of August. Sat second in the table, it will be their recent defensive record most impressing Michel Der Zakarian. The visitors have now gone just over 300 minutes without conceding a league goal. In fact, only defending champions PSG can match Montpellier’s defensive record.
