Strasbourg vs Montpellier
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 20th April 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Strasbourg were involved in a classic six goal thriller in their last game which ended 3-3 against Guingamp. But this was a disappointing match for the club who were expected to win with few problems. The draw means that they have drawn their last 2 matches and 4 out of their last 5 games. They are in 9th place on 44 points but have qualified for Europe anyway because they won the Coupe de la Ligue.
The good news for Strasbourg is that they are not losing games and their last defeat occured at the beginning of March. This is a club who have good confidence and at home they have gone their last 4 games undefeated.
Montpellier come into this match in 6th place with 48 points and could make a real splash for a European place if they can win this game. Their last game ended in a 2-1 home win over Toulouse and overall their form has been decent but they have lost 2 games from their past five.
Montpellier have the 4th best away record in Ligue 1 but recent form has been very poor where they have lost 3 of their last 4 games. A win would most probably keep them in the same position but would stop the threat of the teams behind them closing in.
Strasbourg vs Montpellier: Head to Head

Strasbourg vs Montpellier: Prediction
Montpellier have a poor record at this stadium and coupled with the fact that Strasbourg are playing well and scoring goals and still have good confidence we do not think they will lose this game. Our bet will be to go with history though and say that we do not feel there will be many goals in this game. This is a game that could be very close and we do not expect to see much difference in quality from either side in a match which may present very few chances on goal for either team.
