It’s the second night in a row that one team has stopped me from a winning bet. Montpellier is the team in question – the team I was least worried about in the accy. The side top Ligue 1 after a storming start to the new season and looked sure to beat Amiens. Amiens have started the French campaign with three points in five games and second bottom of the 2nd French tier. It should have been a mismatch so I was surprised to see Montpellier go into the break 2-0 down. Montpellier scored once then found an equaliser and the come back was on. With 14 minutes left, could they really find the winner and breathe some life into my accy? No was the answer. The game finished 2-2 and another bet is recorded as an almost.
Surprisingly, despite not knowing the rest of the teams I was betting on, they all did what Montpellier couldn’t – win.
