Strasbourg vs Montpellier
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 29th September 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg)
Strasbourg have got off to a poor start with just 1 win this season and in their last game they lost against Lille with that ending 2-0.
The results have not gone the clubs way and as a result they come into this game in 17th place with just 6 points. At home their record is much better where they have lost just once this season but have drawn too many games. Their last home match ended in a 2-1 win over Nantes. With the league so close a win at the weekend could see the team rise near the top 10 clubs.
Montpellier have looked great one week and average the next and the club from the south of France come into this game in 10th place. Recent form has been encouraging and they have gone their last 3 games undefeated. In midweek they met and beat Nimes 1-0 at home but the teams problems have been trying to win back to back games.
Away from home Montpellier have drawn 66% of their games and have yet to win on the road, their last match ended 1-1 with Marseille which was a decent result.

Strasbourg vs Montpellier: Prediction
We expect to see a close game and that is why we will predict the draw as a final result. It is risky, but these two teams know all about drawing and one would expect that both teams would be happy to go away with a point each.
However this won’t be our main bet for this game which will be to see both teams to score which historically looks nailed on here to happen and should give us a decent enough profit in return. Expect a slow game with few chances as both clubs will be cautious.
Strasbourg vs Montpellier: Bet Tips:
Both teams to score at 2.00 (1/1)
Match Result: A draw at 3.00 (2/1).
