Live in-play betting – 

Defending Champions AS Monaco welcome an impressive Montpellier side in this game after their crushing 0-3 home loss to FC Porto in the Champions League.

Their European form might be undesirable but they have been impressive in the league this season despite losing most of the members of last season’s Ligue 1 winning squad.

They are currently 2nd in the league table, just 1 point behind PSG who spent so much money to rebuild their squad over the summer.

They have been solid in the league when they play at home winning their 3 home league games this season scoring 12 goals and conceding just 3.

They look likely to bounce back with another win in this game.

12th placed Montpelier became the first team to win a point off, as well as stop PSG from scoring when they held the league leaders to a goalless draw last weekend and they will be looking to get another point off AS Monaco here.

They started their season in very poor form as they lost 3 and won just 1 of their first 5 games but they have managed to collect 4 points from their last two games keeping two clean sheets in the process also.

They will be looking at keeping the likes of Radamel Falcao at bay in this game also.
