Both Montpellier and Clermont Foot are currently enjoying the comforts of mid-table in the Ligue 1. Both teams will be eager to make a push for an even stronger position, when going toe-to-toe this coming Sunday.

Separated only by a narrow margin, a win for Montpellier in their upcoming Ligue 1 clash will see them swap positions with Clermont Foot. Thus, a highly competitive match surely awaits at Stade de la Mosson.

Montpellier go into their next Ligue 1 match, scoring a humble average of 1.5 per game in their last ten matches. They scored a mundane 15 times, while conceding 15. That amounts to an average of 1.5 per game, where they kept their opponents from scoring five times.

Clermont Foot are currently not the most scoring team in the Ligue 1, as they only found the back of the net six times in ten matches. This is an average of just 0.6 goals a game in which they conceded 13 times, an average of 1.3 per game. They managed three clean sheets in of these.

The most recent outing between Montpellier and Clermont Foot ended up a 1-1 draw. The best betting odds on a draw at full-time with the bookies are at 12/5.

Montpellier vs Clermont Foot Prediction

Montpellier Form

Montpellier should be high on confidence, as their last three matches saw them gain seven points. They started off drawing 1-1 with Lens, before beating first Angers by 5-0, then AC Ajaccio in a 0-1 win. Montpellier claimed a modest two wins in their past six home matches in the Ligue 1. They also drew one and lost three, scored 11 goals and conceded nine.

Clermont Foot Form

Clermont Foot added four points to their collection in their last three matches, which began with a 1-1 draw with Strasbourg. A 0-1 win against Toulouse followed, before a 0-4 defeat against Lens in their most recent match. Clermont Foot won half their previous six away matches in the Ligue 1, as well as seeing one draw and suffering two defeats. They scored five goals whilst conceding five.

Montpellier are in decent enough shape to make them the value bet, when facing Clermont Foot. In their current form, we find it difficult to build an argument for the visitors to steal a point here.

Montpellier are looking at a record of ten wins, three draws and 14 defeats in the Ligue 1 this season. Clermont Foot put nine wins, seven draws and 11 defeats on the board in the Ligue 1.
