This is an enthralling clash at the top of the Ligue 1 table in France with St Etienne currently in fourth place, one point behind Lyon who are in the Europa League spot. Montpellier are seven points behind tonight’s opponents in fifth so anything but a win here will end their chances of a European spot for next season.
St Etienne are in great form going into this game with six wins and one draw in their last seven matches and that puts them in pole position for a Europa League spot next season. They have kept a clean sheet in their last two home games but prior to that, they’d conceded in their previous seven home games.
Montpellier need a win to keep their Europa League hopes alive. They’re unbeaten in four games now and both teams have scored in their last four matches too. They’ve won just two of their last 11 away matches and we’re backing them to lose again this weekend. The first of our betting tips is for Saint Etienne to win this match with both teams to score and the best odds are 12/5 with Betfred.
There is every chance that we’re going to get a close game here but goals are expected, so we could get on an anytime goalscorer tip. The St Etienne top goalscorer is Wahbi Khazi, who made 38 appearance for Sunderland, scoring just three goals. He’s only scored once in his last 13 games though. The in-form player for the hosts in front of goal is Remy Cabella, who has got four in his last six matches and he looks a decent bet for our anytime scorer tip here. The French midfielder is best price 11/5 with Paddy Power to score in this match.
Montpellier will be relying on top goalscorer Andy Delort to score the goals as La Paillade look to keep alive their outside chance of finishing in the top four of the Ligue 1 table, therefore booking themselves a place in the Europa League for next season.
The last of our three betting tips for this Ligue 1 match is a correct score and we’re backing up the earlier match result and both teams to score bet with a 2-1 win for the home side. Manager Jean-Louis Gasset will want to keep the momentum as they enter the final three games of the season, with no European places yet decided. We cannot look past a win for La Verts here but don’t expect an easy time of things, the prediction to complete our betting tips is a 2-1 home win.
