Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Montpellier and St Etienne go head to head at Stade de la Mosson in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Sunday’s program. La Paillade aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Nice, with the team eyeing their first league win since March 21, 2021. Montpellier are eager to finish the season in style, and we are positive that they will find the net in Sunday’s clash. Teji Savanier is banned for the match, while all Arnaud Souquet, Pedro Mendes, and Ambroise Oyongo are out of contention through injuries.
Les Verts, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both PSG and Brest in the previous two league fixtures. St Etienne, though, continue to look sharp in front of goal, which is the main reason why both teams to score betting option should be considered. Gabon international Denis Bouanga is back from suspension, while Anthony Modeste, Stefan Bajic, and Yvann Macon remain in the recovery room.

Highlighted Team (St Etienne):
Saint Etienne are a professional football club that compete in French Ligue 1. Les Verts were founded in 1919 by employees of a grocery store chain based in Saint Etienne. Saint Etienne wear green shirts and white shorts when playing at home ground and they play their home matches at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
The stadium was opener on 13 September, 1931 and following the renovation the capacity of the venue increased to 42 000. In 1981 les Verts won their tenth Ligue 1 trophy, but they have been in the shadow of Ligue 1 giants Lyon and PSG in the 21st century.
Speaking of the club’s European success, Saint Etienne made it to the European Cup (Champions League) final in 1976, but Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich proved to be a big catch for the French outfit. Anyhow, that is regarded as the club’s biggest success. It has to be noted that the likes of Michel Platini, Jacques Santini, Laurent Blanc and Aime Jacquet all played for Saint Etienne in the past.
