Montpellier vs Troyes – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Montpellier are targeting three early points when they host Troyes on the opening weekend of the new Ligue 1 season. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Montpellier to Win

Troyes were notoriously poor on the road last season and though one of four away victories in Ligue 1 was secured at Montpellier’s expense, a repeat of that triumph over their ten-man hosts feels unlikely on Sunday. Instead, a home win is favoured at the Stade de la Mosson, where new-season optimism could be enough to get La Paillade over the line. No club lost more away assignments (11) than Troyes last term – a record that makes them well worth opposing here.

Under 2.5 Goals

Bettors on the lookout for action-packed fixtures should head elsewhere on Sunday as Montpellier’s duel with Troyes has the makings of a game decided by slender margins. Both of last season’s encounters between the teams produced under 2.5 goals, indeed, seven of the last eight meetings between the sies overall have seen two or fewer efforts notched. High-class attackers are lacking in both camps and we recommend sticking with under 2.5 goals for this one.
