Montpellier vs Strasbourg
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 17 September 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson
Montpellier take on Strasbourg in the Ligue 1 on Saturday at Stade de la Mosson.
Strasbourg will try to forget the last season as soon as possible because the sixth-place finish did not even secure them a place in European Competitions this season.
The Blue and Whites might had better hopes prior to the opening fixture this Ligue 1 season, aiming to start the campaign in a completely different mood.
But, they failed to do so. After the opening fixture’s defeat to Monaco, Strasbourg have made it five consecutive Ligue 1 fixtures. They bounced back from the slump by claiming a victory in the last match-day against Angers.
Meanwhile, Montpellier had to settle for a bottom-half finish the last season. Things are not different this time around as the team sit at 10th in the league standings currently.
They started this season positively but was destroyed by PSG in the second fixture scoring 5 for 2 from the Montpellier side. Since then, they won two and lost three to bag a total of 9 points on the table.

On the other hand, Montpellier won and lost 2 apiece of their total 4 Ligue 1 fixtures in front of the home crowd in this season. They scored goals in all the fixtures. Do also note that their defensive line breached in 3 of those 4 fixtures.
