>St Etienne – Montpellier PREDICTION & TIPS
The Greens took their time but finally came to the end of Metz last Saturday (3-1). A fifth success in nine days which allowed the Stephanois to invite themselves on the third step of the podium. Opposed Friday in Montpellier, 11th, Garcia’s men have the opportunity to ensure a weekend more in the top3. The Héraultais begin to find their rhythm, after a beginning of the season galley. Unbeaten for four days (2v-2n), the MSCH would be well extended its series in a Cauldron where they were dominated during the last six years … Accustomed to concentrate on the defensive aspect before projecting, the two formations will they be able to decide?
Montpellier found the way to the Stephan nets only during one of his last four trips to the Cauldron.
The MHSC has remained silent in 7 of its last 14 trips to a club ranked among the top ten in L1.
The Stéphanois have preserved their inviolate goal in 4 of the first 9 days of the season.
St Etienne – Montpellier- Our prediction
Saint-Etienne knew how to defend under the Galtier era and seem to have progressed since the arrival of Garcia. Often concentrated on the defensive aspect when it moves, the MHSC will have a priori very few opportunities in the Cauldron. Saint-Etienne has almost a fortunate chance of preserving its inviolate goal. One tries the bet “Montpellier does not mark”.
