Montpellier 6/4 to beat Nice in Sunday’s Ligue 1 game
Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Montpellier to beat Nice
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet365
The French league continues on Sunday as Montpellier and Nice look horns. The current game week has seen PSG extend their lead at the top following their own win and Monaco’s defeat, while things go from bad to worse for Metz and Dijon, who lost yet again.
The hosts have been struggling a lot in recent weeks with a number of results not going their way. Indeed, in their last five games, they have won just once, losing twice and drawing the other two. This has seen their momentum thwarted thus far, as they now sit just three points above the relegation zone. Five goals scored in eight games is a paltry amount, although they have been fairly good defensively, conceding just six goals so far.
The visitors arrive in slightly better form than their hosts. Nice have won two of their last five, lost two and drawn the other. This has seen Nice to 13th in the table with 10 points, one point and place above their next opponents. Where the visitors trump their hosts is in their attacking play, with Nice scoring 12 goals so far. However, their Achilles heel is their defending, as they have picked the ball out of their own net 12 times. Although Nice are scoring more goals, home advantage is likely to play a part on Sunday evening, and Bet365 are giving Montpellier odds of 6/4 to beat Nice.
