St Etienne vs Montpellier (By: Pikachu)
First to open the 36 round of Ligue 1, Saint-Étienne will host Montpellier and I expect interesting games between two good teams.
After a colorful season with some wins, loses and draws Saint-Étienne found the right technique and tactics to make wonderful end of their 2018/2019 season in Ligue 1. After they destroyed Caen away from home with 0-5 result, Saint-Étienne got so much motivated that they won 5 of next 6 matches in league and scored 14 goals, lets forget that draw vs Amiens. Saint-Étienne is in very good position with 62 points and stable 4th place which give them UEL next season, if Saint-Étienne win next 3 matches they have big possibility for UCL qualifiers and small chance for direct UCL.
Montpellier played 13 draws in the league so far which is the team with most draws of all first 8 in league. Montpellier is mid to high quality team with 55 points and 5th place, 7 points away from their rivals tonight, they have very small chance to play in UEL next season in which I dont believe they can make it. Though guests havent played so bad lately, Montpellier had 4 wins in last 6 games along with 1 draw and 1 defeat.
Hosts will miss defenders Silva (19/0) and Subotic (26/1), midfielder Hamouma (25/3) and attackers Monnet-Paquet (23/1) and Diony (30/5). Guests will miss only defender Aguilar (28/1) and midfielder Dolly (3/0).
Saint-Étienne is missing 5 good players while guests only 1. Hosts are in very good form but they dont need points deadly so it wouldnt be the end if they lose tonight while guests have the team and scorers also, both teams are scoring and conceding alot so I'll go for BTTS & Over 2.5
