Nice vs Montpellier Match Analysis & Prediction
11/01/2023 11:00 pm
Both Nice and Montpellier will be looking to bounce back to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they square off at Allianz Riviera in their Matchday 18 tie on Wednesday night.
The two sides have made inconsistent campaigns so far in Ligue with the hosts of occupying 11th position in the standings, after collecting 21 points, while the visiting side is down to 14th spot with a total of 17 points.
They are both coming off defeats in Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France, with Nice first losing out 2-1 to Rennes in the league, before suffering a 1-0 to Le Puy in the Cup.
Montpellier on the other hand suffered a 2-1 defeat to Marseille in Ligue 1, before going down 2-1 at Pau in the Coupe de France last time out.
Therefore, both side will be desperate to bounce t winning ways on Wednesday and we expect a closely-fought encounter with the two being evenly matched ahead of the clash. Nice should fancy their chances though, as the fixture has normally favored the home side, but they failed to beat Montpellier last season in both league games, losing 2-1 at home and drawing 0-0 on the road.
