St Etienne – Montpellier : Preview & Prediction
AS St Etienne, 4th overall at 1 unit of Olympique Marseille, is unbeatable since 25 September and has just aligned 9 matches without losing a single. The arrival of Claude Puel is no stranger to the good results of the Greens. The Forézien club has recently won Monaco (1-0) in the Cauldron and obtained 1 draw at Oleksandria (2-2) in the Europa League and 1 short win at Nantes (3-2) on November 10 at La Beaujoire. The Tarnese technician found the right formula and a new win ahead of Montpellier could allow his team to occupy the podium of this League 1. The MHSC, 6th, is also very solid at home but shows signs of difficulties in outside. Thus, the club Héraultais is still waiting for a success away from the Mosson and has already registered 3 draws and 3 defeats during his 6 trips. In the last three days, Der Zakarian’s team has taken 5 points against Angers (0-0), Metz (2-2) and Toulouse (3-0) at home. But this move in the Forez could be fruitless.
St Etienne beat Montpellier 4-0 in a friendly on July 19.
