Saint-Etienne vs Montpellier Preview

Saint-Etienne vs Montpellier

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Stade Geoffrey-Guichard

Date: 10th May 2019

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Saint-Etienne will be looking to continue their fine end to the season run when they take on Montpellier in this game.

They are currently on an impressive run of form that has seen them jostle with Lyon for 3rd position in the league table and their 7 points lead on their visitors in this game can almost guarantee that they will play in Europe next season.

The Home side beat Monaco 3-2 away from home in their last league game.  That was their 4th win in as many games and they have won their last 3 home games on the trot as well.

Montpellier have also been in fine form at this back end of the season and come here with 55 points from 35 league games so far.  They had been gunning for the final European spot but they would need to get all three points in this game to keep that race open for the remaining games.

They are currently level on points with Marseille and they will be looking to avoid a defeat here that could see the Mario Balotelli led side leapfrog them.

Montpellier have won 3 of their last 4 league games but were held to a 1-1 draw by Amiens in their last league game.

Bookmakers have priced Saint-Etienne up as strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while Montpellier look to have it all to do according to oddsmakers.

This Friday evening fixture gets underway at 19:45 BST.
