Montpellier vs Strasbourg Free Betting Tips – Ligue 1
A very credible candidate for Europe, Montpellier has made a very honourable start to the season which allows it to find itself, at the quarter of the championship, in 7th place with only 2 points behind 2nd place. Very solid during the first 5 days, the Héraultais had experienced some difficulties in October, losing against Nîmes (0-1) and Reims at home (0-4) in particular. But they were able to correct the shooting before the break and remain on two fairly convincing successes obtained against Saint-Etienne (0-1) and Bordeaux (0-2).
Opposite, Strasbourg seems to have broken its spring in this first part of the season. Authors of several quite exciting exercises in recent seasons, the Alsatians are in the hard for the moment in this championship and drag their misery in the red zone. Indeed, they took only 6 points in 10 days and find themselves in 19th place with 2 points behind the first non-relegation. Beaten 8 times in their first 10 games, Thierry Laurey’s men had just managed to stop the bleeding by winning against Brest (0-3). But since then, they have fallen back into their pitfalls against Reims (2-1) and Marseille (0-1).
The workforce for Montpellier vs Strasbourg
If we put aside the goalkeeper Omlin, the entire Montpellier workforce should be fit for this meeting. Suspended in Bordeaux, the important Hilton should make a comeback, unlike the Tallec midfielder. Against the Girondins, the Algerian international Delort scored his 4th goal of the season while his friend Laborde delivered his 5th assist.
The Alsatians will once again be orphans of goalkeeper No. 1 Sels and striker Mothiba who are still stuck in the infirmary for a while. On top of that, the important Saadi and substitutes Lebeau and Siby are out of form. On the other hand, the very important midfielder Aholou should his return after testing positive for Covid and the striker Ajorque has served his suspension. With 19 goals conceded, Strasbourg shares the status of the worst defence in the championship with Dijon and Nîmes.
The probable compositions for Montpellier vs Strasbourg:
Montpellier: Bertaud – Hilton, Congré, Pedro Mendes – Sambia, Mollet, Ferri, Oyongo – Savanier – Delort, Laborde.
Strasbourg: Kamara – Lala, Simakan, Mitrovic, Caci – Bellegarde, Djiu, Liénard, Chahiri – Thomasson – Diallo.
