Montpellier – Strasbourg : Preview & Prediction
Montpellier, 9th in the ranking, is only 2 points from Monaco, positioned in 5th place potentially qualifying in the Europa League (if the club which won one of the two national cups is already qualified for the European Cup). The Montpellier residents are very solid at home this season and this is clearly what makes their strength. To be able to qualify for the European Cup, the players will clearly have to outdo themselves outside (1 victory in 13 games).
Strasbourg, only one small point in front of its opponent of the day, also dreams of Europe. After winning the League Cup last year, players had the opportunity to play the Europa League this season. After winning the first two rounds, the Strasbourg lost to the Germans of Eintracht Frankfurt at the play-offs (3-1 defeat in both games). The Alsatians hope to find these European matches at the Stade de la Meinau as quickly as possible.

The Strasbourg scored only 10 away goals in L1, and conceded 15, still in 13 games.
