Montpellier Preview – Can Montpellier recover?

Wednesday night’s hosts, Montpellier, were handed a heavy 5-0 defeat away at the hands of runaway Ligue 1 leaders, PSG, on the weekend so they’ll no doubt be keen to return to winning ways this evening when they entertain lowly Metz.

Prior to their mauling against PSG, Montpellier had put together a 3-match winning streak which consisted of victories over Brest, Amiens and Dijon but that recent defeat means the hosts are now trailing 4th placed Lille by a 4-point margin.

The hosts still possess a pretty solid home record though which stands at 8-1-2 21/9 and having won 8 of their last 10 matches on home turf at their Stade de la Mosson, the hosts look in good shape to collect the points on Wednesday night.

However, Montpellier have beaten the -1 asian handicap line in just 4 of their 11 home matches so far this season and have beaten Metz in just 1 of the last 5 meetings against them, in addition to losing their last two matches at home on the trot against Metz too.

Our betting suggestion:

Metz Preview – Can Metz surprise their hosts again?

Recent form would suggest that Metz stand a very good chance of doing so as the visitors have put together an encouraging and vastly improved set of results which have seen Metz unbeaten in their last 5 matches overall in the French top flight.

This is a marked improvement from their previous period which resulted in a 7-match spell without a win which consisted of 4 draws and 3 defeats, but having posted back-to-back draws with 2nd placed Marseille and Dijon in 1-1 and 2-2 draws respectively, Metz have gone on to win their last 3 league matches on the trot.

Victories over Strasbourg, Reims and Saint-Etienne will have been a welcome boost for the visitors who now occupy 16th place on the Ligue 1 ladder but more importantly, hold a 7-point cushion over third from bottom club, Amiens.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 5 away matches, Metz look a decent bet to cover the -1 asian handicap line here.
