HSC Montpellier vs AS Saint-Etienne Soccer Prediction Today
HSC Montpellier – AS Saint-Etienne – At the start of the 35th round of French Ligue 1 we have a very interesting defeat, as two teams are still in the competition for Europe, with eighth Montpellier currently having three points less than sixth St. Etienne. In addition, the visiting team has been in a much better shape than its rivals lately, which on the other hand can boast of having celebrated in the previous two of their first championships.
However, Montpellier has a lot of problems in this part of the season, as well as a domestic defeat with St. Etienne are expected after two linked defeats, first at home with Bordeaux 3: 1, and then last weekend with a 1: 0 win at Nice. But what is even more important is the fact that in the last 10 appearances only one victory was achieved, and this is the away at Caen, so it is no surprise that in the meantime they have been ranked fifth in the eighth place on the Ligue 1 table.
However, they are still in the game for the European league because they have only four points less than the five-placed Nice but also their current form is not promising at the eve of the last four laps. On the other hand, their next rival is in a great run, so it will be very interesting to see if Montpellier will succeed in avoiding the third consecutive defeat. Let’s say that after the suspension has been restored, the head of Lasne returns to the first team, while defenders Aguilar, Roussilon and Oyongo are still injured.

After the last two triumphs over Strasbourg and Troyes, the coaches of Gasset have only come to a point of rest for the fifth Nice, and if they continue to play at this rhythm, it would not be surprising to us that at the end of the election this placement in Europe. However, they are now expecting a very demanding match with the always unpleasant and solid Montpelliere, which should only miss outraged injured defenders Perrin, Pierre-Gabriel and M’Bengue.
