Match Date: 29 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade de la Mosson


The battle for relegation survival heats up between Montpellier and Valenciennes. With their Ligue 1 status at stake, one can only expect a down the wire match between the two as they both prove their worth in staying in the top-flight league.


Sitting on the 15th spot of the table, Montpellier experienced a beating from Nantes. The loss resulted to a poor team form characterized by a single win during their last matches.


But if there is anything that gives them the confidence to win over Valenciennes, this is their undefeated record at home. Currently, Montpellier maintains a 5-match success at Stade de la Mosson and this easily makes them as the sports betting favorite in the match.


Montpellier’s strength at home is something that Valenciennes should be wary about. Just recently, the minnow, AC Ajaccio outlasted them, much to the surprise of many. Aside from the fact that it was a total blow to their ego, the result was also a total waste of the golden opportunity to ensure survival.


Prediction: Montpellier
