Over 2.5 Goals

Angers has the second-worst defense in Ligue 1, they conceded 53 goals, the only team that has allowed more goals is Troyes with 55. At the same time, Angers is also the second-worst squad when it comes to efficiency. Their goalscoring record stands at 21 goals. When we focus our attention on the over/under bet for this Montpellier vs Angers prediction, the visiting team is tied for second with 17 games of more than two goals scored including the last two matches they played. Montpellier is just below them in that ranking with 15 ‘over' games, but they had three out of their last four matches with fewer than three goals in the back of the net. Looking at their h2h record, three out of their past five matches ended with over 2.5 goals.

Montpellier to Win

Interestingly, Angers has only two wins this season in 25 matches played, and one of those wins was earned against Montpellier by the score of 2-1. It was the middle of September, the earlier part of the season, and since then things haven't gotten any better for the visiting team. With only ten points on the record and eleven points behind the safety zone, it is going to require a small miracle for Angers to survive the season without being relegated. Montpellier, on the other hand, is 14th at the moment with eight wins, 14 losses, and three draw games, their main problem the entire season is their leaking defense. However, against one of the worst attacks in the league, things should be somewhat easier for the home team. Angers won the last couple of times they met, but both as the home team, Montpellier won the last two matches that they hosted.

Team News, Preview, and Montpellier vs Angers Lineups

Montpellier

The whirlwind season for Montpellier continued last week when they played out a draw against one of the best teams in the league, Lens, and that was their third straight game without a loss. That positive run gave some security for the team, even though they are still not too far from the relegation zone with only six points being the vacuum from the teams in danger of dropping down the league system. Montpellier will be without Elye Wahi, Beni Makouana, Leo Leroy, and Pedro Mendes for the Angers match.

Potential lineup: Lecomte, Esteve, Jullien, Kouyate, Sylla, Chotard, Ferri, Sacko, Maouassa, Nordin, Savanier.

Angers

The future for the visiting team ahead of the Montpellier vs Angers match is firmly set in the relegation zone, and most likely in Ligue 2 from next season. They have failed to give their fans any kind of hope for what is to come this season going winless in 23 out of 25 matches played. There are some health issues within the team for this weekend's match: Yahia Fofana, Ali Kalla, and Ulrick Eneme-Ella are out.

Potential lineup: Bernardoni, Ghoulam, Camara, Hountondji, Valery, Sima, Abdelli, Bentaleb, Mendy, Salama, Niane.

Player to Watch: Teji Savanier

With Elye Wahi out of the Angers match with injury, Teji Savanier will be the focal point for the Montpellier attack. He is tied with Wahi as the top scorer for the team getting eight goals on the record with a single assist to his name as well.
