Montpellier will welcome Strasbourg to Stade de la Mosson for a matchday 9 fixture in France Ligue 1. The last meeting on 9th May 2021 ended in a Montpellier 3-2 win. Both sides have met nine times in the most recent seasons. Montpellier has won 5 matches, and Strasbourg triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.89 goals, while both teams score 56% of the time.
Montpellier's latest fixture against PSG ended in an away 2-0 loss. I expected more from La Paillade. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Strasbourg's recent game against Lille ended in a home 1-2 loss. Strasbourg had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Strasbourg deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 75th minute.
Since the start of the season, Montpellier is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 5 games on home soil. Although Montpellier is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 20% home clean sheets.
Strasbourg has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Strasbourg wins 1.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Strasbourg kept a clean sheet in just 25% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Strasbourg.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.96 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 71% of Montpellier's home and Strasbourg's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Montpellier has scored in 100% of home games. Strasbourg is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
