Montpellier vs Strasbourg
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 15th September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Montpellier have steadied the ship after losing their first game of the season and have now gone their last 3 matches unbeaten. This form has seen the club from the south move up to 7th place.
In their last game they went to Reims who had been on form and fought hard for a 1-0 victory. They have worked on organisation, discipline and defence and it seems to be paying off. Although they still look suspect on set pieces and will need to stay focused against the better teams.
For Strasbourg it has been the reverse of the host team where they started with a win but have now gone their last 3 games without one. This includes defeats too Lyon and Nantes which happened in their last two games and the worry is that they are also conceding too many goals- 5 in their last two games.
Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
- Last season this match finished 1-1.
- Strasbourg have not won at Stade de la Mosson for 14 years.
- There is a 75% chance to see under 2.5 goals in this fixture.
Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Montpellier are the slight odds on favourites to win this game and this looks justified given that the away side have recent poor form and do not have a good record coming to this ground.
So our main bet will be to see a home win but we will also back the home side to grab at least 2 goals as Strasbourg’s defence has been shaky. They will hope to have recovered after the international break but this isn’t an easy ground to come to.
Montpellier vs Strasbourg: Bet Tips
