Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
St Etienne and Montpellier go head to head at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in what is expected to be a close encounter. Les Verts made a slow start to the season, and it has to be noted that they are one a four-game losing run in the Ligue 1 ahead of the visit of Montpellier. However, home win should be considered as the visitors head into the match with a severely-weakened squad.
Michel Der Zakarian’s troops suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Reims at the weekend, with both Hilton and Le Tallec being sent off. The duo misses the Saint Etienne game through suspension, and seeing that Ristic (injury), Teji Savanier (suspension) and Mendes (coronavirus) remain on the sidelines, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the struggling hosts. In their last meeting in the French top flight Montpellier defeated St Etienne, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
