Saint Etienne vs Montpellier Prediction 20 October 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade Geffroy-Guichard
Match date: 20.10.2017 at 19:45

On Friday 20 2017 at 19:45 in the opening game of the 10th matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Stade Geffroy-Guichard the local Saint Etienne will play against Montpellier.

Nobody actually expected Saint Etienne to be in the race for the championship this season.  It seems to us that are really capable of making it to the Europa League zone, in fact. Anyway, they score a lot and they are comparatively reliable in defense which lets them be in the first half of the table. Now, after 9 games already played in the national elite division Saint Etienne have 17 points and take the third place I the standings with 13:9 goal difference. Saint-Etienne haven’t lost at home in the new season yet. In those games they outplayed Nice 1:0, Amiens 3:0 and Metz 3:1 and drew Angers 1:1 and Rennes 2:2.

As for Montpellier, they look by far not as strong as they did in the previous season. Despite the fact that Montpellier conceded three goals less in their nine matches already played, their worse efficiency only let them score seven times. Before the upcoming game Montpellier have a series of good results and the victory against Nice 2:0 in the latest match prolonged their lossless series to make it 4 games long already.

We must admit that the guests haven’t won a single game against Saint Etienne at their home stadium in their history while they lost eight times in none games. Saint Etienne don’t lose at home and it seems to us that this fact doesn’t change this time.
