Montpellier – Nice : Preview & Prediction
Montpellier would like to take off in the league (14th) and reach the soft underbelly of the rankings … A victory in front of Nice would be good for the morale of the Herault who remain on 1 short defeat in Nantes (1-0) before this international break. The MHSC had aligned before this failure two good performances in Bordeaux (1-1) and against Lyon (1-0) in Mosson. Winner in the last two seasons of Nice at Mosson, Montpellier would be inspired to achieve the pass of three to give air to the rankings. The Aiglons, 3rd, made a great start with already 3 success against Amiens (2-1), Nimes (2-1) and Rennes (2-1) during the first 4 days of the championship. The GYM has lost only once since the beginning of this year 2019-2020, it was August 28 at the Riviera Arena against Olympique Marseille (1-2). Little inspired by the Mosson, Nice could concede his second defeat of the season.
Montpellier record against Nice at the Mosson in official competition: 7 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.
The MHSC remains on 2 successes against the OGCN in the Hérault, ongoing series.
Many absences in Nice (Hérelle, Sarr, Walter, Maurice Claude, Maolida, Diaby).
Montpellier had beaten Lyon (1-0) for their last game at Mosson.
Nice won in Rennes (2-1) thanks to a goal from Coly in stoppage time (90th +2). Lucky success of Vieira’s protégés!
Montpellier, who has 7 wins in front of Nice in the last 9 duels at Mosson, is not used to conceding too many points at home against Aiglons. A new victory is highly conceivable.
