Saint-Etienne made a steady start to the season and moved to third in the standings. They do trail PSG by a massive 8 points, while the out of form Monaco is just 2 points away.

ASSE are coming on the back of a convincing 3-1 win at home over Metz last weekend. This stretched their unbeaten home record this season to five games, 3 wins and 2 draws.

Montpellier are unbeaten in their last four and are coming on the back of a 2-0 home win against Nice. This is rather interesting that their last three games are against teams that finished inside top three last season.

Before Nice, Monaco and PSG were held to draws. It seems like Montpellier are the team to beat in Ligue 1 at the moment.

Saint-Etienne vs Montpellier: Head-to-head

Montpellier ended their long 9 match win-less run against Saint-Etienne when the teams in the Ligue 1 fixture on February. ASSE had won 8 on the bounce during that streak.

Yet, Saint-Etienne have a strong home record against Montpellier as they are unbeaten in 9. The last five are wins and overall 8 wins and a draw.

Saint-Etienne vs Montpellier: Prediction

Both teams are coming in good spirits and therefore one must anticipate a tight clash on Friday evening.

However, I can see Saint-Etienne bagging a narrow win here as Stade Geoffroy-Guichard is a fortress for them this season.

Moreover, despite humbling the heavyweights of the league, Montpellier have a poor record at this particular venue.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 home win for 9.50

Saint-Etienne vs Montpellier: Bet Tips

  • Over 1.75 match goals at 1.53 odds is a banker.
  • Value is in backing St. Etienne to win for 2.16 odd.
