Monaco and Montpellier meet in the French Ligue 1 on Friday night. With this one taking place at the Stade Louis II, the home team are the favourites.

Monaco Preview – Will the Red and Whites make it three wins in a row?

Since replacing Leonardo Jardim in December, former Spain boss Roberto Moreno has had a mixed bag of results at the Stade Louis II. However, after three consecutive league and cup defeats, Monaco have sealed back-to-back Ligue 1 wins over Angers and Amiens.

Last week’s 1-0 victory over Angers was Monaco’s first home league win since thumping Lille 5-1 on December 21st. The Red and Whites won six league and cup home matches in a row a couple of months ago, but they have picked up just two victories in their previous seven in all competitions at the Stade Louis II.

Our betting prediction:

8/11

(odds taken 1510 GMT, Wednesday 12 February)

 
Monaco currently sit seventh in the table with 35 points to their name. So far, they have won ten, lost nine and drawn five. The Monegasques are five points adrift of fourth spot. Can Moreno’s men secure a crucial three points on home soil on Friday night?

Montpellier Preview – Can the visitors pick up a rare victory on the road?

Michel Der Zakarian’s Montpellier are enjoying another fine season in Ligue 1. La Paillade finished seventh last term, and they are flying high in fifth place at present, three points behind fourth-place Lille. Victory in Monaco on Friday will take them into fourth spot on goal difference.

Montpellier have been in superb form over the last couple of months or so. They lost three in a row in December, but Der Zakarian’s men have won six of their following nine across all competitions, with their only defeat during that time coming to champions Paris Saint-Germain at the beginning of the month.

Only current leaders PSG have a better home record, but Montpellier have struggled on the road this term, winning only one of their 11 Ligue 1 away fixtures, drawing five and losing five of the other ten. Three points away from home on Friday will be very welcome for Montpellier.

 

Monaco vs Montpellier Betting Advice

Monaco have not beaten Montpellier in league action since February 2017. Since then, La Paillade have won two and drawn three of the following five Ligue 1 meetings.

Back in October, Florent Mollet, Pedro Mendes and Andy Delort were on the scoresheet in a 3-1 Montpellier win. At the Stade Louis II last season, Montpellier ran out 2-1 winners, scoring twice in the last two minutes to turn the game on its head.

 

Key Facts – Monaco vs Montpellier Betting Tip

  • Monaco have won their last two league games
  • Montpellier have won just one away game in Ligue 1 this season
  • The away team are currently two points above their hosts in the table

 

As I touched on, Montpellier have really struggled on their travels, but I fancy them to get the better of Moreno’s Monaco on Friday evening. Check out the tempting price of 15/2 for the away side to win and both teams to score.

Andy Delort is in fine form for Montpellier, scoring three in his last five. Since making the permanent move to the Stade de la Mosson, Delort has scored ten league and cup goals, including one against Monaco in the reverse Ligue 1 meeting in October. Delort is available at 13/5 to score anytime on Friday.
