Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
After crushing Brest 7-0 at the weekend, Montpellier will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Ajaccio on Matchday 5. La Paillade will continue to rely on Elye Wahi, who scored a brace at the weekend, while Teji Savanier is sidelined through suspensions. The likes of Dimitry Bertaud, Mamadou Sakho, and Pedro Mendes are sidelined with injuries, while both Stephy Mavididi and Sacha Delaye are major doubts.
The visitors, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table with only one point in their pocket. The rock-bottom side do not seem to be competitive at this level, and given their shaky defence, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home side. In their last encounter at Stade de la Mosson Montpellier defeated AC Ajaccio 2-0, and we predict that the history will repeat itself. Midfielder Mounaim El Idrissy is banned for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Téji Savanier):
Born in Montpellier on December 22, 1991, Teji Savanier is a French footballer who plays for Nimes in the Ligue 1 as a midfielder. Savanier began his senior career at Arles-Avignon and it has to be noted that he played for the club from 2011 to 2015.
Ahead of the start of the 2015/2016 Ligue 2 campaign, Teji Savanier joined Nimes and he has been playing for the club ever since. The 171-cm tall midfielder has established himself as a first-team regular at Nimes and he successfully plays for the club in the French top flight. Savanier’s main position is central midfield, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Despite producing fine performances for Nimes in all competitions, Teji Savanier has yet to receive a call-up for the French national football team. His contract with Nimes should expire on June 27, 2018.
