Montpellier vs Bordeaux: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips.
This betting preview contains recent form, possible lineups, injury news, match predictions and betting tips for Montpellier vs Bordeaux.
Fixture: Montpellier vs Bordeaux
League: Ligue 1
Venue: Stade de la Mosson
Date: Saturday 17th December
Kick-off: 14:00 GMT
After getting thrashed 4-0 by Monaco, Bordeaux will travel to the Stade de la Mosson needing to get back on track before their match against Nice two weeks from now. Unfortunately the visitors won’t really know what to expect since it is fair to say that Montpellier have been an inconsistent team this season.
Over their past three matches Montpellier has a 3-0 win over PSG sandwiched in between losses to Toulouse and Lille. However, Bordeaux should not expect an easy match, as their opponent is unbeaten at home over their past four matches.
This can prove to be a decisive battle in the middle of the table with neither team giving up much ground.
This matchup leans slightly Bordeaux’s way, but there really isn’t a clear-cut favorite. Montpellier are a tough side to breakdown at home, but Bordeaux hasn’t lost to the hosts in their last seven matchups.
Neither team will want to give anything to the other, so expect this to be a defensive chess match of sorts. This one appears to have stalemate written all over it.
