Head to Head


Monaco have dominated this fixture and hold a 24-2 advantage over Montpellier along with 13 draws.

They last met in October 2020 where Montpellier took a point in a 1-1 draw at Monaco.

Montpellier Form


Montpellier find themselves eighth in Ligue 1 after 19 matches. They are only five points off fourth place, which is held by their opponents Monaco.

Recent results have, however, not gone Monpellier’s way. They have taken two points from their last five matches, something that needs drastic improvement.

That run began with a 2-0 home defeat to Metz before getting a point in a 2-2 draw at Brest. It was followed by a 3-2 home loss to Lille and then a 3-1 defeat at Marseille.

In their last match, Montpellier drew 1-1 at home to Nantes. Amboise Oyongo gave Montpellier an early lead but they failed to hold on as Nantes equalised six minutes after the break.

Montpellier Injuries & Team News


Teji Savanier and Stephy Mavididi have trained after returning from COVID-19 but are sure to lack the match fitness required to start.

Midfielder Florent Mollet’s is a doubt after going off injured in the last match.

Pedro Mendes is expected to start after featuring off the bench last weekend.

Monaco Form


Monaco are fourth in Ligue 1, seven points off the top of the table. They have taken 10 points from their last four league matches as they continue to push for a Champions League spot.

Monaco are enjoying a good spell of form. After losing 3-0 at home to Lens, Monaco beat Dijon 1-0 away and drew 2-2 at home to Saint-Etienne.

That was followed by an impressive 5-2 away victory over Lorient. Monaco’s last match ended in a 3-0 home win over Angers SCO. Guillermo Maripan, Kevin Volland and Stevan Jovetic were the goal scorers on the day.

Monaco Injuries & Team News
