Nantes will be looking to claim three points that would ensure they stay in Ligue 1 next season when they host Montpellier on Saturday afternoon.

Les Canaris have not only failed to win their last three league games, but have also failed to score a single goal. In the league, Pierre Aristouy's men have not won since February 12, 2023, going thirteen games without a win.  Nevertheless, Nantes fans can take comfort in the fact that they have won their last two encounters with the visitors.

Montpellier have already secured their place in Ligue 1 for next season, but will be looking to end the season on a strong note. Michel Der Zakarian's men may not be in such dire need of points, but they have also lost just one of their last six Ligue 1 games away from home. Considering that they have, however, won just one of their last four away games at Nantes, it wouldn't be a surprise if they left this game empty-handed.

Nantes vs Montpellier Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

When it comes to games between Nantes and Montpellier in Ligue 1, the headlines have been dominated by the lack of goals. By comparison, eight of the last ten league encounters between these two sides have ended with two goals or fewer.

Given that the hosts' last three games have each ended similarly, we don't expect many goals on Saturday afternoon either.

  • Best tip: Under 2.5 goals

Nantes team news

Midfielder Pedro Chirivella is struggling with a knee injury and Saturday's game is expected to come too soon for him.

The 25-year-old would miss what would be his ninth game in a row, but otherwise coach Pierre Aristouy has no other problems to report ahead of this fixture.

Montpellier team news

Montpellier would be happy to go into Saturday's game with an injury-free squad, but Joris Chotard and Téji Savanier are just one yellow card away from suspension.

Elye Wahi is the club's top scorer this season with 17 goals and the 20-year-old is expected to lead the line, while Faitout Maouassa (five assists) will be the one to keep an eye on in the engine room.
