We have prepared the best three predictions for this game. Take a look.

Note to Punter: Odds change often so check with Betfred for the latest game odds before placing your bet on any or all of the above three predictions.

Away win or Draw

While the bookies favour Strasbourg to deny Montpellier a double victory this season, we have a different view of this fixture. Despite losing their last two fixtures after a 15-match unbeaten streak, we don’t see the visitors losing for the third time in a row. The hosts have remained unpredictable for the longest time and have the fourth-worst home record in the league this season. Moreover, Montpellier has lost only four times on the road and beating Strasbourg thrice this season is something team manager, Michel Der Zakarian would fancy on Sunday. However, a double chance looks more plausible than a straight win for the away team.

Goals on both sides of the pitch

We are also predicting goals on both sides. Montpellier and Strasbourg struggle defensively and while this will likely be a low scoring game; both teams are likely to find the net. The hosts have kept only one clean sheet in their last ten games. On the other hand, Montpellier has managed only two clean sheets in the last ten fixtures.

Less than Three Goals

While the two teams have had some unpredictable backline performances, we don’t see many goals in this game. Montpellier will play for at least a point, and backing them to score few goals is good on the books. Moreover, Strasbourg wouldn’t want to lose more games as they seek more points with three games to play.

Match Preview: Strasbourg Needs Survival Points

Strasbourg is 16th on the Ligue 1 table and six points from safety. The hosts badly need at least a win in any of their remaining three fixtures. But can they defeat Montpellier, having lost twice to the visitors this season?

Strasbourg

Strasbourg’s poor run of results is a cause for worry going into this game. The hosts have looked shaken with a few games left to play. While the hosts can still get some points in the remaining three fixtures, winning only two games in the last ten matches is a major concern for Thierry Laurey and his men. Even more worrying is the fear of losing for the third time to Montpellier this season. We expect a cautious approach from the hosts who will be satisfied with at least a point.

Montpellier

At 8th position, Montpellier is assured of Ligue 1 place next season. The visitors have drawn 8 games on the road, won five and lost four times. Getting another draw on Sunday will do them just fine. However, we feel Michel Der Zakarian hopes to get three victories from his Sunday opponent or at least get a three-match unbeaten record against the hosts this season. Moreover, the visitors’ manager enjoys a better record against Thierry Laurey of 7 victories and 6 draws in 15 encounters.
