In midweek Montpellier could only draw at home 1-1 to Metz which was seen as a disappointing result and this came off of the back of losing 5-0 to PSG.
These are not great times for the club but they are in 5th place and just 3 points from 4th and a European finish. The club boast the 3rd best home record in the league where they have won 8 of their 12 games and have acquired 26 points from a possible 36. They have become very hard to beat here and have earned 10 points from their last 15. They haven’t quite managed it but they are almost scoring 2 goals per game at home.
Saint Etienne are in 15th place and 6 points behind their hosts. They are going through poor form where they have lost 4 of their last 5 games which includes back to back defeats. In midweek they lost their 11th game of the season going down 2-0 to Marseille.
Away from home they have won 4 games from 11 but they have lost 4 straight games in a row. Their last away game ended in a 3-1 defeat against Metz.

Montpellier vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
Montpellier have hit a wall in the last two games but when we look at games before hand they were on a good run 3 wins in a row and they have been strong at home this season.
Saint Etienne are in very poor form and nothing suggests that they can get anything here.
However, their poor form won’t last very long and they have been able to frustrate their opponents over the last few seasons so we will take the away side to get something on the handicap.
