Worth Mentioning

The last meeting between the two teams ended in a boring 0:0 draw back in March, 2022. Nice were unable to register a win across the previous two head-to-head matches, recording 1 defeat and 1 draw in the process. Being the host turned out to be of a great benefit in the last 10 encounters, with the team playing on a home ground recording 8 victories and avoiding defeat in 9 out of 10. Only 1 of the most recent 10 clashes resulted in a draw. Three of the last five games saw both sides hitting the back of the nets and three featured more than two and a half goals. Within these battles on the pitch, Nice limited their rivals from scoring in one and Montpellier achieved that feat two times. The last five meetings finished with 12 goals scored in total.
