Team News: Montpellier
Montpellier manager Michel Der Zakarian does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match thanks to a fully injury-free squad to pick from.
Team News: Strasbourg
Strasbourg manager Thierry Laurey has to currently contend with reduced team options. Matz Sels (Achilles tendon rupture) and Lebo Mothiba (Knee Injury) are not able to play.
We’re of the view that Strasbourg might well have a job on their hands to score goals against this Montpellier lineup who we think will likely manage to score & go ahead.
We therefore see a hard-fought 1-0 winning margin for Montpellier at the conclusion of the game.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
