Montpellier vs Caen: Preview and Prediction
Montpellier vs Caen
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 15th October 2016
Kick-Off at 19:00 BST
Venue: Stade de la Mosson, Montpellier.
For Montpellier they are having an incredibly terrible season incredible because they started Ligue 1 with a 1-0 win over Angers, and still two months down the line only have that one win. Their bad form has left them dicing with the relegation zone in 17th place.
The worry is also in the lack of goals they have got this season, at home they have scored just 3 times. Their latest home loss came against Metz when they went down 1-0.
Have Caen made a turning point in their season? They stopped a 3 game losing streak recently to draw against Bordeaux and looked impressive in beating Toulouse who themselves are having a great season.
However, away from home tells a different story where they are yet to win and have collected just a single point from the 12 available.
Montpellier vs Caen: Head-to-Head Stats
Caen has won the last two fixtures in these meetings against Montpellier. From the last seven matches counting just Ligue 1, there has been at least three goals on four occasions. These matches are rather unpredictable but it would be fair to say that Caen had the edge in recent encounters.
Montpellier vs Caen: Prediction
This is a game that has a draw written all over it. Between these two sides, they have managed five draws already. Montpellier is under real pressure at home to perform and until fan expectation dies down this is a team that would rather play away.
This plays straight into Caen’s hands and the team were able to travel down on Wednesday night so will get in four training sessions and might be the better prepared of the two.
