Backing a home win

Montpellier turned heads with a shocking 7:0 win at Stade Brestois last weekend; they have two wins in four league games so far, which is a huge improvement considering they had no wins in 12 matches prior to the start of their season. Ajaccio, on the other hand, have been going through a rough patch lately; they are coming off back-to-back losses, with no wins in their last five matches. Looking at the form of both teams, coupled with the fact that Montpellier have the advantage of playing at home, we believe the hosts will take all the points from this match.

Both teams will score

As a result of Montpellier's 7:0 win last weekend, they are now one of the highest-scoring sides in Ligue 1; as a matter of fact, only Paris Saint Germain have scored more goals than Montpellier this season. Conversely, Montpellier have not had much trouble conceding goals; as they've allowed nine goals in four league matches. Because of the way they score and concede, both teams were on the score sheet in four of Montpellier's last five matches. It's been the same case with Ajaccio; as both teams scored in five of Ajaccio's last six matches. Taking everything into account, both teams should score.

Can Montpellier follow up on their famous win?

Montpellier wrote a chapter into their history book at the weekend as they hit seven goals but it still only counts for three points and, given it was their first win of the season, they'll want to follow it up here. Ajaccio meanwhile need to get a win themselves; they're currently bottom of the table and winless!

Khalil Fayad and Teji Savanier remain suspended, after both players received straight red cards in their loss to Auxerre; however, Montpellier impressed with a 7:0 victory over Stade Brestois without these players last weekend. Despite having a handful of players in the recovery room, Montpellier should have a lot of confidence heading into this match.

Montpellier Predicted lineup – Omlin, Sacko, Jullien, Cozza, Luce, Chotard, Ferri, Nordin, Germain, Maouassa, Wahi

Olivier Pantaloni will be thankful to have a fully healthy squad going into this match; Ajaccio also have no players on the suspensions list. However, it's worth noting that Ajaccio have no wins so far this season; and Pantaloni will have his work cut out for him as his side takes on Montpellier.

Ajaccio Predicted lineup – Leroy, Alphonse, Gonzalez, Mayembo, Diallo, Bayala, Marchetti, Mangani, Spadanuda, El Idrissy, Hamouma
