Their past results show that Strasbourg:
- haven't won against Montpellier in their last 2 league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 3 matches in the league.
After a loss in their previous game against St Etienne in Ligue 1 action, Montpellier and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

In their previous half-dozen clashes, Montpellier have bagged a tally of 9 goals. La Paillade have also managed to score in every single one of those games. Over that period, they’ve seen 10 goals go against them. We will see if that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Heading into this contest, Montpellier have not won away from home in their last 5 league games.
Head to head

A total of 19 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 6 of them from Le Racing and 13 created by La Paillade. The average number of goals per game works out to 3.17.
Team News: Strasbourg
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Strasbourg boss Thierry Laurey to be concerned with from a near full-strength group of players. Mohamed Simakan (Arthroscopie) misses out.
Team News: Montpellier
Montpellier manager Michel Der Zakarian has to choose a team with limited availability. Ambroise Oyongo (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Pedro Mendes (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) miss out here.
When taking all factors into account, Montpellier certainly have the ability to breach the defence of this Strasbourg lineup, but it is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re predicting a 2-1 winning score for Strasbourg at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
