Montpellier will look to build on their Ligue 1 momentum when they host Strasbourg at the Stade de la Mosson on Saturday night. Montpellier come into this tie on the back of a narrow 0-1 victory on the road at Reims, with Ambroise Oyongo scoring the winner with just 13 minutes to go. On the contrary, Strasbourg suffered a dramatic 2-3 home loss against Nantes last time out in Ligue 1, with their goals being scored by Ludovic Ajorque and Joia Nuno Da Costa.

Betting Tips for the game
Montpellier have lost 1-2 against Dijon on the opening round, but they looked much better since then. Montpellier are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1, winning two and drawing once in this term. The bad news is that Montpellier’s home form in Ligue 1 over the past seven months has seen them lose three and drawing five in this term.
Strasbourg, on the other hand, kicked off the season with a 0-2 win on the road at Bordeaux, but haven’t won another game since then. They are currently on a three-game winless streak in Ligue 1, including their 2-3 home loss against Nantes a fortnight ago. Away from home, Strasbourg managed just one win in their last ten competitive trips.
Montpellier should be able to extend their unbeaten start in Ligue 1 on Saturday night against a struggling Strasbourg side. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Montpellier to win at odds 1.95.
