Top Bets for Pau vs Montpellier

The French Cup often brings clashes between teams from different specters of the domestic league system, and this is one of those occasions.

Montpellier to Win

Montpellier has its troubles this season in Ligue 1, starting in a positive fashion before losing ground and piling up losses. However, they did a good job during the World Cup break, and came back with a better attitude and results. Playing against a Second Division team that hasn't had much success this season could be another great opportunity for the visitors to improve their form this season.

Under 2.5 Goals

Even though Montpellier is a good offensive team, a lot will depend on how the hosts start this match. They are not a very good goalscoring team so their goal here will be to shut down opposition's attacking play. There isn't much we can take from their Ligue 2 form, they are one of those teams that have an average quality squad-wise, but are somehow tough to score against.

Team News, Preview, and Potential Lineups

Pau

The home team lost both of their matches when the season resumed after the World Cup break, and are now struggling to find some form that would keep them out of the relegation battle. There are a lot of teams in Ligue 2 that are struggling with goalscoring form, and Pau is one of them. They have a goal difference of 16:21, and even managed to have a negative outcome in home matches even though they won more than they lost. But, that will take them only so far. There main goal for the season is to stay in the Second Division, everything else is extra work. Obviously, their adventure in the French Cup has its own benefits, and playing at home against a Ligue 1 side like Montpellier will give their fans something to look forward to, instead just hoping they won't be relegated. Captain Antoine Batisse is injured, while their Vietnamese midfielder Quang Hai Nguyen is on international duty.

Potential lineup: Olliero, Ros, Kouassi, Ruiz, Koffi, Sylvestre, Saivet, Beusnard, Bassouamina, George Clayton, Yattara.

Montpellier

It has been a hard season for Montpellier fans who were so exicted by the way their team started the season when all of a sudden things changed dramatically. They lost their way pretty quickly and suffered some tough losses conceding to many goals for their own taste. But, they took some lessons and have taken advantage of the season's break because of the World Cup to work on their weaknesses. They returned with an impressive win at Lorient. However, their defense is what will drive their success or failure the rest of the year. They have allowed 29 goals, and their forward line can't balance it out for the time being. There are some injury concerns: Dimitry Bertaud, Wahbi Khazri, Pedro Mendes, Theo Sainte-Luce, and Enzo Tchato are doubtful.

Potential lineup: Omlin, Maouassa, Esteve, Jullien, Sacko, Leroy, Ferri, Mavididi, Savanier, Nordin, Wahi.

Starting lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Elye Wahi

The 20-year-old center forward is impressive this season leading the charge for the Ligue 1 side as the best scorer. He is a France U21 international and is touted as the next big thing among French strikers. He is getting plenty of chances to shine for Montpellier and will look forward to the rest of the season to further his progress.
