Reason For Montpellier vs St Etienne Predictions

  • Montpellier have won 8 of their 12 home games in Ligue 1.
  • Saint-Etienne have lost 7 of their 11 away games in Ligue 1.
  • Montpellier score an average of 1.83 goals per home game.
  • Saint-Etienne concede an average of 1.91 goals per away game.

Montpellier have been excellent at home this season

Montpellier were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Metz in midweek while Saint-Etienne lost 2-0 in their own backyard against Marseille, meaning that the gap between the two clubs increased to 6pts ahead of Sunday’s clash. The two clubs played out a goalless draw when they met for November’s reverse league fixture and we’re expecting another close and competitive ninety minutes this weekend.

The hosts have won eight times at home this season, performing much better in their own backyard than on the road, while Saint-Etienne have already lost seven times away from home and have lost six of their last seven league games. Montpellier average 2.17 points per home game and Saint-Etienne average 1.09 points per away game, with the hosts winning 67% of those matches and the visitors losing 64% of theirs.

Montpellier score an average of 1.83 goals per home game and concede 0.83 goals while Saint-Etienne score an average of 1.09 goals per away game and concede 1.91 goals, which is why we have backed a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of the hosts this weekend. 58% of Montpellier’s home games and 73% of Saint-Etienne’s away games have produced over 2.5 goals while 50% of the hosts’ home games and 64% of the visitors’ away games have seen both teams score, adding further weight to our prediction for a 2-1 home win.

Saint-Etienne are in the midst of a poor run of results in Ligue 1

The hosts have only failed to score in 17% of their home game and the visitors have only failed to find the back of the net in 18% of their away trips, which is why we have backed a final scoreline in which both teams score. Saint-Etienne have conceded in both halve of 45% of their away games and this stat could prove crucial in the end result this weekend.

Exactly 3-goals have been scored in 25% of Montpellier’s home games and 36% of Saint-Etienne’s away games, with a majority of Montpellier’s wins this season (5) being obtained via a 1-goal margin and four of Saint-Etienne’s defeats also being by a 1-goal margin which ties in perfectly with our prediction for a narrow 2-1 home win this Sunday.

We’re confident that Montpellier will win on Sunday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1. The hosts have been strong at home this season with eight wins from twelve games and they play Saint-Etienne at the perfect time, with the visitors losing six of their last seven league games.
