Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade de la Mosson will host Friday’s football game between Montpellier and Monaco. La Paillade just can’t find their best form in the Ligue 1, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures. Montpellier head into the match following a modest 1-1 draw with Nantes, and even though Michel Der Zakarian can count on key players for the Monaco clash, home win should not be considered.
Les Rouges et Blancs, on the other hand, kicked off 2021 in great manner, with the team rolling over both Lorient (5-2) and Angers (3-0) in the previous two league fixtures. Monaco have been in a splendid form of late, and seeing that Kevin Volland has found his goalscoring touch, away win should be considered. Even though Cesc Fabregas remains in the recovery room, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors.
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.
Highlighted Team (Monaco):
Though based in Monaco, Les Rouges et Blances – as they are commonly referred to – play their games in the French football league system. Members of the top tier Ligue 1, Monaco play their home matches at the Stade Louis II in Fontvieille in front of 18,500 people. The Principality club boasts a turbulent history, which saw Monaco reach the highest heights of both domestic and international scene, but also get relegated to the amateur leagues at the very beginnings and to Ligue 2 in 2010-11 season.
The following year AS Monaco were acquired by the Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, whose heavy investments turned the Principality club into one of the biggest spenders in Europe in 2013 and reestablishing its place among Europe’s top clubs.
AS Monaco have had notable European results in the modern football era having been runners-up in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1992 and the UEFA Champions League in 2004. One of the most successful clubs in France AS Monaco have so far won seven league titles and five Coupe de France trophies.
