Betting Tips Strasbourg vs Montpellier
Friday’s Ligue 1 encounter at the Stade de la Meinau sees 14th-placed (30pts) Strasbourg take on sixth-placed Montpellier (38pts).
La Paillade (W3, D1, L1) last qualified for continental competition back in 2011-12. They are now chasing European qualification hopes once again as they look to pip Nantes to fifth – should Nantes lose to their North-coast counterparts, Amiens. Midfielder Ellyes Skhiri is particularly charged for this game, and recently stated: “Our goal is very clear. We need to secure fifth place.”
Newly-promoted Strasbourg (W2, L3) took a thrashing in their last L1 match and bore the brunt of league-leaders PSG home-form in a 5-2 away defeat. However, Strasbourg’s home record has picked up of late, and they have accrued a decent home record with just four home league losses this season – and even beat PSG 2-1!
In nine of their L1 head-to-head matches, fifteen-goal Strasbourg have won five matchups, whilst ten-goal Montpellier have won two matches, two games were drawn.
With only seven positions separating the teams, a fairly evenly matched game is expected from fans of both sides – but with Strasbourg’s ropey defence letting in 47 goals in 26 matches – can Montpellier pile on the pressure on their European-spot contenders Nantes?
