Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Montpellier and Monaco go head to head at Stade de la Mosson in a highly-anticipated Ligue 1 game. La Paillade do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team losing three of their last four league fixtures, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Sunday’s clash. All Maxime Esteve, Jonas Omlin, Faitout Maouassa, Theo Sainte-Luce, and Dimitry Bertaud should miss out with injuries.
Les Rouges et Blancs, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team winning each of their last four league games. Monaco aim to move closer to the Champions League berth, and we predict that Wissam Ben Yedder, who scored a hat-trick in a 4-1 win over Nantes, and his teammates will take advantage of Montpellier’s shaky defence. As for the away side, both Ruben Aguilar and Willem Geubbels are out of contention with injuries.
