Monaco hosts Montpellier in round 25 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Friday, February 14th at Stade Louis II (Monaco)
Monaco got closer to the Euro Cup zone, but the competitors do not give many chances so far. There are six more points to the fourth place, which looks quite reachable so far. In the championship, things are going with varying success. In the last two matches, the Monegasques managed to gain two victories, but the rivals were rather weak. Monaco is the third league team in terms of goals conceded. The rivals upset the goalkeepers of Monaco 40 times in 24 matches. Only Amiens (43) and Toulouse (49) conceded more. In the last seven matches of the championship, the men of Moreno kept a clean sheet only in the match against Angers. All other rivals managed to upset the goalkeeper of Monaco at least once.

Montpellier is even closer to the Euro Cup zone, more precisely at the distance of one victory. The men of Der Zakarian decently performed in recent games. In the last six matches within the framework of the national championship, they scored 13 points out of 18 possible, which allowed getting closer to Lille. In the same six matches, Montpellier failed to score only in the away game with PSG. In other cases, Montpellier’s players scored at least a goal in each game.
Bookmakers clearly underestimate Montpellier, giving a large advance to the home team. Most likely, the coefficient for the goal scored by the visitors is so decent because of it either. At this stage, there is no such big gap between the teams. And Montpellier steadily scores goals. As for head-to-head meetings, Montpellier scored even more than one goal in two matches of the last season and in the first match of the current one. I think that the quotes will change closer to the start of this match. And the visitors have every chance to score at least one goal.
Prediction for the match: Montpellier to score over 0.5 goals
