Montpellier – St Etienne : Preview & Prediction
Montpellier, 5th in Ligue 1, is only 6 points from the podium … The Hérault club plans to beat AS St Etienne this weekend to get closer to this 3rd place. The MHSC will want to return to victory after its poor performance in Paris (5-0) then against FC Metz (1-1) at Mosson. The Hérault club still took 10 points out of 15 in play thanks to its 3 victories ahead of Brest (4-0), in Amiens (2-1) then against Dijon (2-1). The same cannot be said for Sainté, who ranks 15th and has just lost his last two matches in Metz (3-1) and against Olympique de Marseille (0-2) this Wednesday evening. Outside, the Greens are on a very bad pass with 4 failures during their last 4 trips to the league in Rennes (2-1), Reims (3-1), Strasbourg (2-1) and Metz (3-1). Stéphanois should once again struggle with one of the best home training.
Montpellier has been unbeaten for 3 games (1 win and 2 draws) in official competition against St Etienne.
Montpellier is 5th in Ligue 1.
Saint Etienne is 15th overall.
The Greens remain on 2 defeats in a row in the league.
The Forézien club is on 4 defeats of row outside in Ligue 1.
In the hard way for a few weeks, the Greens should logically bow to the Mosson against a formidable Hérault team.
