Saint-Etienne Prediction

Saint-Etienne occupy 4th place on the Ligue 1 ladder and are now just one point behind 3rd placed Lyon who sit in the Champions League qualifier spot, prior to this important home match against Montpellier.

The hosts have put together an impressive 7-match unbeaten sequence in the French top flight which includes winning 6 of these last 7 matches with wins against Caen, Nimes, Bordeaux, Reims, Toulouse and Monaco.

Saint-Etienne have come into form at just about the right time of the season and with a solid home record which stands at 12-2-3 31/13 under their belts so far, they’ll fancy their chances of claiming a valuable three points in this encounter.

Saint-Etienne’s solid home record includes keeping 7 clean sheets to date, while midfielder Cabella (8 goals) along with forwards Khazri (13 goals), Beric (7 goals) and Diony (5 goals) provide the hosts with impressive firepower.

The hosts have also won their last 3 home matches on the trot, scoring a total of 7 goals and conceding just 1 in reply.

Montpellier Prediction

Montpellier occupy 5th place in the French top flight but find themselves 7 points adrift of their Friday night’s hosts, Saint-Etienne, despite heading into this clash on the back of a four-match unbeaten run in recent weeks.

Recent wins over Toulouse, Strasbourg and an impressive 3-2 home win over PSG have kept them in the frame for a top four finish but this match against Saint-Etienne is pivotal for both the hosts and the visitors.

Turning to Montpellier’s results away from home though, and you’ll note that the visitors have managed just 2 wins out of their last 10 matches on their travels which were gained at Bordeaux and Strasbourg, but an away record of 6-6-5 21/21 shows their inconsistent streak on the road this term.

In addition, Montpellier have failed to score in 5 of their 17 away matches of this season, and they’ll be up against the miserly defensive unit of Saint-Etienne on Friday night.


Key-Facts – Saint-Etienne v Montpellier

  • Saint-Etienne are unbeaten in their last 7 matches overall in Ligue 1
  • Saint-Etienne have won their last 3 home matches on the trot in Ligue 1
  • Montpellier have won just 2 of their last 10 away matches in Ligue 1


Betting Tips Verdict

Saint-Etienne are currently enjoying a strong run of form at the moment and should take advantage of an inconsistent travelling Montpellier outfit here. The hosts’ firepower should be too much for a goal-shy Montpellier side who have struggled for consistency on the road this term.
