Montpellier vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 22nd November 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Here are two teams who are really in need of a win and one of them will be hoping to get just that on Sunday.
Montpellier will feel that they have the advantage before a ball is kicked being the home side and they come into this match in seventh place. The good news for the club is that after a poor run they did manage to win back to back games before the international break.
However the break could have been a bad thing for Montpellier who would have wanted the season to have continued if they had started a good run. Their last game was a 2-0 win over Bordeaux.
Strasbourg could go bottom if Dijon win and they come into this game having lost their last two in a row. Their last loss was against Marseille although that game only finished in a 1-0 defeat.
There is no denying though have poor the club have been and Strasbourg have lost 80% of their matches so far. On the road the club have lost 4 of their five games so far and are conceding on average 2 goals per game.
Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
Last season Montpellier won this fixture 3-0.

Strasbourg have no wins at Montpellier in the last 15 years.
Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Even though Montpellier have had some bumpy results and need to find more consistency we fancy them for this win. We also have to remember that the club are in better form now and are going for their 3rd win in a row.
Strasbourg are better than the 19th place that they are in. But they have been unlucky and lose heart to quickly in games. There is an obvious quality gap between the sides and we think Strasbourg will struggle here.
Strasbourg have a poor record away to Montpellier and we think the home side can get a good result and ease to victory.
Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Bet Tips:
