Due to a poor record in front of goal, Nice are now 12 points off the European places, so they will need a remarkable turnaround in the second half of the season if they are going to pose a threat near the top again.

With just 16 goals scored in 17 matches, Lucien Favre’s side are the league’s joint-second losest scorers, however they have managed to keep it tight at the back, boasting the fifth-best defensive record.

Since returning from the World Cup break, Nice have faced two tough opponents in Lens and Rennes, and they only managed to pick up one point, against opponents both sitting in the top four.

Les Aiglons will be disappointed by their surprise exit from the Coupe de France last time out, losing 1-0 away at Le Puy F43 Auvergne, a team that plays in the third tier.

Meanwhile, Montpellier have scored 27 goals in Ligue 1 so far this season, although seven of these came in a 7-0 victory over Brest at the back end of August.

After winning three of his first five matches, Olivier Dall’Oglio appeared to be getting off to a good start as manager, however, he was dismissed in October after a run of five defeats in six matches.

Romain Pitau is the new man in the dugout and has managed to steady the ship somewhat, and earned a good win away at sixth-placed FC Lorient at the end of December, however, his side have started to struggle again in recent weeks.

In their first game of 2023, Montpellier lost 2-1 at home to Marseille, before they were knocked out of the Coupe de France against lower-league opposition, losing 2-1 away at Ligue 2 side Pau, so it has not been the greatest of starts.

Nice vs. Montpellier Head to head

In the previous 40 meetings between these two sides, Nice have claimed 11 victories while Montpellier have won 19, and they have drawn in 10. Montpellier have scored 52 goals and conceded 40 in the process.
