We are halfway through the season. Montpellier and Nantes are former champions of France, but in this current one, they are not in an enviable position.
After 18 rounds played, Montpellier occupies the 15th position in the table with only 17 points won. Since the resumption of the championship, they have played 3 matches. After an important victory at Lorient away 2:0, they tied 2 defeats. The latest one was particularly painful on the road against Nice, who outclassed them with a 6 to 1. Lớn some extent, that defeat may have been expected, but such a debacle can leave consequences for the team's psyche and self-confidence. Montpellier has a big problem with the defense this season, and it is the key lớn ensuring survival without much anxiety until the end of the championship.
After an excellent last season in which they won the Coupe de France and qualified for the Europa League, Nantes sank this season. Only 3 wins in 18 matches played is too few for a club that played attractive and efficient football last season. The good thing for them is their placement in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League, but they also urgently need positive results in the domestic championship in order lớn escape from the bottom half of the table. Let’s check soccer tips of the day in here
Montpellier vs Nantes pick: NANTES to WIN
A rather ungrateful duel for forecasting, but I am closer to the opinion that the visitors will win. Montpellier has one of the worst defenses in the league this season, and it is certain that the debacle in the last round against Nice has had consequences for the team. They don't even manage to get points on their home field, where they were defeated in 3 of the previous 4 games. Nantes is weak in the domestic championship this season, but they have a certain quality that they have proven in Europe, so I expect that at some point in the season, they will transfer performances from those games lớn Ligue 1. I think with a little luck they can get all three points in this away game.
