Worth mentioning: Montpellier earned a point from their home meeting with Nantes last weekend, but have failed to win any of their opening two matches for 2021, after losing 3:1 to Marseille earlier. The team is without a triumph in five consecutive encounters and are clearly suffering in the defensive deparment, conceding two or more goals in all but one of the last seven clashes. Just one of Montpellier’s last eight and two of the last fifteen games were won by the home sides. Three of their last five outings resulted in over 2,5 goals, while four saw both involved teams to score.
Monaco trashed the visiting Angers 3:0 when the two sides met at Stade Louis II on Saturday. The team is unbeaten in four straight clashes, recording three victories and a draw. Monaco scored at least twice and a total of ten goals across the last three meetings, but before that were unable to hit more than a goal past their opponents in four consecutive matches. Four of their last five games featured over 2,5 goals, as two witnessed goals at both ends.
