Montpellier vs Strasbourg: 29 February 2020
French Ligue 1, Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier are in 9th place and they have the chance to go past Strasbourg with a win here. But form has left the club and they come here with back to back defeats. They have lost to both Monaco and Angers and have not scored a goal since February 9th.
Despite some recent problems the club have 37 points and are only two points from a top 5 place. But with only 4 points earned from their last 15 this is not a good period from the home side.
Strasbourg are in 6th place and could over take Monaco with a win here and stretch their lead over Montpellier to 5 points. The club have gone their last 4 games unbeaten which is good news, but their last two games have ended in draws.
On the road they have lost 7 from their 13 games but the good news is that they have gone their last 3 games away from home unbeaten. Their last away game ended in a fairly impressive 1-1 draw at Lyon.
Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Head to Head

Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Montpellier at home have a strong record over Strasbourg. Also their overall home form has been strong with just two defeats this season and based on home games only Montpellier would be in 3rd place. They are unbeaten in their last 4 games at home and we will take them on to win this game.
However, to add more value to our selection we will back Montpellier to be winning at half time.
Andy Delort has scored two goals in Montpellier’s last three home games and he looks like a player who is really on form for the home side so we will back him also.
