This could be an interesting match as Monaco have their presumed home advantage while Montpellier are ahead 2 points in the Ligue 1 table.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

Monaco enjoyed a nice away win last time out, playing at Amiens SC's place. The match ended 2-1 with Islam Slimani and Wissam Ben Yedder scoring. Previous to that game, a home match hosting Angers SCO in a game that was won 1-0.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of R. Moreno when Islam Slimani scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 59th minute. Some amazing scenes last match, when Islam Slimani scored the winning goal two minutes into stoppage time.
