Strasbourg vs Montpellier: On this Friday’s match that opens up the Ligue 1’s 27th round,
The local side Strasbourg and the visiting side Montpellier face off in the city of Strasbourg, at the la Meinau Stadium, on a match between two teams that will meet again this season, with their first encounter on the first half of the season ending with a 1-1 draw in Montpellier.
The home side is making a very positive campaign on their first experience, for a long time, in the top tier of French football, being, for now, within what was expected from them, although they have a short advantage to the relegation zone of only 4 points.
The team is coming off a battering suffered against PSG, but still, they were coming off a good streak of results, having gotten earlier 2 consecutive wins and beating direct opponents, having inclusively managed to score in all of their last 3 matches.
As for the visiting side, they are making a fantastic campaign so far and the best one of the last decade, only surpassed by the year where they won the French title, being next to the European qualification spots and practically having the best defence in Ligue 1.
The team is coming off a globally positive moment of form, only losing 1 of their last 4 matches, against Lyon, although defensively they are in poor form, since they have always been conceding for the last 4 matches.
Strasbourg vs Montpellier – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon a Strasbourg that is one of the teams that tends to score the most goals in the league, at least for the position they currently occupy, but that also concedes a lot (about 2 goals per match, on average) and even with a Montpellier that is consistent defensively.
I see this match having some goals from both sides.
