Montpellier vs Troyes Prediction and Betting tips

Montpellier host Troyes on Sunday in the opening weekend of the new Ligue 1 season at the Stade de la Mosson.

The home side got off to a solid start last season, hoping for European football midway through the season before suffering a miserable defeat in the second half of the season. They claimed just three wins in their last 19 league games of the season and finished 13th in Ligue 1 standings, their first bottom-half finish in five years.

Montpellier experienced a miserable pre-season, losing all three friendlies. They will try to put that behind them and start the season on a positive note.

Despite a poor end to the season, Troyes managed to retain their top-flight status right after promotion and will be happy about that. They finished 15th in the league standings with 38 points from 38 games, six above the drop zone, and will look to put in a stronger performance this year.

The visitors have managed to keep the core of their squad together and have also carried out good recruits by firmly signing Canada international Ike Ugbo. They struggled in the off-season but are aiming for a strong start here.
