Troyes vs Montpellier Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Troyes welcome Montpellier at the Stade de l’Aube on Saturday evening, with both teams aiming to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Troyes only managed a nil-nil home draw against Toulouse last time out in Ligue 1, despite the fact they had eleven goalscoring opportunities. On the other hand, Montpellier lost 0-1 at home at the hands of Nantes, with Michel Der Zakarian’s men conceding the goal in the 76th minute. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

It’s difficult to separate these two sides as both have been struggling for consistency in this early part of the season and both looked poor going forward. We are expecting a low-scoring affair as three of the last four meetings between these two sides have seen few than two goals scored. Therefore, the Total Goals market look good value here as it's pretty difficult to predict the winner, given the fact that three of the last four games between these two have ended in draws.

Troyes Preview

Troyes started the new Ligue 1 season brightly, but their recent form has seen them lose two and draw once in their last three league games. They had plenty of goalscoring opportunities last weekend against Toulouse, but they were unable to find the back of the net. Actually, scoring has been their biggest issue of late as they have only scored once in their last three league games. This leaves Troyes only in 15th in the Ligue 1 table tied on five points with Rennes and Lille. Troyes have already played three games in front of their own fans so far this season, but they are still searching for their first home victory of the new season. Furthermore, Troyes are winless in the last three home meetings with Montpellier across all competitions, scoring just two goals in the process. Troyes need to start picking up points in front of their own fans if they are to survive relegation this season, as their squad doesn’t look capable to finish in mid table. Head-to-head, Troyes are winless in the last six meetings with Montpellier across all competitions, losing three and drawing three in this term. Troyes haven’t been great recently, but overall, they have only lost three of their last 19 games across all competitions.

Troyes Team News

Tristan Dingome and Stephane Darbion are both doubts, but Benjamin Nivet is still out through a foot injury.

Montpellier Preview

Montpellier did well to beat Caen 1-0 at home in the opening round, but they have failed to win a single game since then. They are currently on a four-game winless streak in Ligue 1, losing three and drawing once in the process. Similar to their Saturday’s opponents, Montpellier have also looked short going forward as they have only scored three goals in five league outings, which is the second worst attacking record in the division. Due to their poor run of form, Montpellier find themselves in 17th position in the Ligue 1 table tied on four points with Strasbourg and Dijon. The main problem is that Montpellier have only won one of their last nine away games across all competitions, while losing seven. They are currently on a six-game winless streak on the road, having scored just two goals in the process. The only good news is that Montpellier are undefeated in the last three visits to the Stade de l’Aube, registering two draws and one victory in the process. Furthermore, Montpellier are unbeaten in the last six meetings with Troyes across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in three of these.
