Strasbourg vs Montpellier
Coupe de France
Date: Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Kick-off at 13:45 UK/ 14:45 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Strasbourg continues to drop points in Ligue 1, and there is a good chance that it will affect their game ahead of Coupe de France in the schedule. The host has been winless for the past four fixtures, following a 3-0 loss on the road against Lyon last time out in the campaign.
Montpellier ended a nine-game long winless run in their schedule with the win in the last clash. The 4-2 win at home against the likes of Dijon was only their second win in the last 12 fixtures. They came in straight to the 1/32-final as the host, but are not likely a huge threat for the latter.

Strasbourg vs Montpellier Prediction
Both teams are strong contenders in Ligue 1 this season, except for their recent dip in form. Mid-table side, Montpellier is at the 11th spot in Ligue 1 table. Meanwhile, the home team is seven points behind the traveling side and closer to the relegation zone at the 16th position in the campaign. With both teams in decent overall performance this term, the BTTS will come in handy to yield decent returns in the clash.
The host enjoys the ground advantage, but their recent winless fixtures will affect their morale. In the meantime, the visitor has turned into winning ways and also has a lead in the league over the host. Besides, visiting on the back of a win with seven goals in it in total will improve the morale of the way team’s dugout. So, the double chance favoring Montpellier will probably be the best bet for the punters.
