Saint-Etienne vs Montpellier Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Saint-Etienne will look to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they welcome Montpellier at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Friday night. Saint-Etienne won 3-1 at home over Metz last time out in Ligue 1 thanks to two second-half goals from Vincent Pajot and Digbo Maiga along with an own-goal from Bryan Dabo. On the other hand, Montpellier picked up a 2-0 home win over Nice last weekend, with Stephane Sessegnon and Isaac Mbenza both getting on the scoresheet in the second half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Saint-Etienne have been solid on home soil throughout this Ligue 1 campaign and they are also undefeated in nine home meetings with Montpellier. They should be able to grab all three points here, especially due to Montpellier’s terrible run of form over the past six months which has seen them win just once in nine away games.

Saint-Etienne to win at odds 11/10

Both teams to score - No at odds 7/10

Saint-Etienne saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Montpellier have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played

Saint-Etienne Preview

Saint-Etienne have enjoyed an impressive start to this Ligue 1 campaign, having lost just two of the opening nine league fixtures. They have struggled a little bit prior to the International break with a 2-2 home draw against Rennes and 2-1 loss away at Troyes, but they did well to fight back from one-goal down to beat Metz 3-1 at home last weekend. This lifts Les Verts in third in the Ligue 1 table tied on 17 points with another two sides and just two points of the second-placed Monaco. St. Etienne’s home form in this early part of the campaign has been the main reason for their impressive performance as they have won three and draw two of their five home league games so far. Furthermore, they netted at least two goals in three of these five home outings. Les Verts managed a decent tally of 13 goals in eight rounds so far this season, including four from their topscorer Jonathan Bamba. St. Etienne should feel confident ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in the last nine home meetings with Montpellier in Ligue 1, winning eight and drawing once in this term. The bad news is that Saint-Etienne suffered back-to-back defeats against Montpellier in their last two visits, scoring just once goal in this term.

Saint-Etienne Team News

Loic Perrin is a doubt, but Florentin Pogba is missing through an ankle injury. In addition, Hernani is out through suspension.

Montpellier Preview

On the other hand, Montpellier’s three-game winless streak across all competitions ended last weekend, as they picked up an unexpected 2-0 home win over Nice. Overall, Montpellier are currently unbeaten in three league fixtures, keeping a clean sheet in two of these. This leaves them in a comfortable 11th position in the standings tied on 12 points with Troyes and Angers, just six points clear of the bottom three. Montpellier looked very well-organized at the back throughout this early part of the season, having allowed just six goals in nine rounds. The worrying thing is that Montpellier have only scored seven goals so far this season, including two from their topscorer Souleymane Camara. In addition, Montpellier aren’t regarded as good travellers as they have only won once in their last nine games across all competitions, scoring just six goals in the process. However, they are now unbeaten in two league trips, including a 1-1 away draw at Monaco in their most recent fixture. The good news is that Montpellier have won their last two meetings with Saint-Etienne across all competitions, conceding just once in this term.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Montpellier ahead of this clash.
