This weekend sees action restart in France’s Ligue 1 following the international break, and on Sunday, Montpellier face off with Strasbourg.

This is a big game for Montpellier. If they win, they can move up as high as the top three in the table.

For Strasbourg, meanwhile, it’s equally as important – they currently sit in 19th place and are desperate for some points.


Montpellier vs Strasbourg Head-to-Head

Montpellier’s season has been mixed, but they have been able to win half of their 10 games. Their last two results in particular were impressive, as they picked up away wins against Saint-Etienne and Bordeaux.

However, they haven’t won a home match since 20 September, having been beaten there in their last two.

Strasbourg, meanwhile, last won on 25 October, defeating Brest 3-0. That win broke a three-match losing streak. They have lost their last two, falling to defeat against Reims and Marseille.

Montpellier vs Strasbourg Prediction

Montpellier are coming off a pair of strong wins in Ligue 1, and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t follow it up with a third victory in this encounter.

Strasbourg have struggled in Ligue 1 from the start this season and their run of one win in six games is appalling. On top of their poor record this season, they’ve struggled to keep goals out, and this should mean a comfortable home win for Montpellier on Sunday.

Prediction: Montpellier 2-0 Strasbourg
