Lille vs Montpellier Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Lille vs Montpellier Predictions
Lille has two straight wins and clean sheets since their shock loss to Nimes and will be hoping for a third here. The hosts have the best defense in the league, having conceded 19 goals and have also lost the least number of matches. However, they’re the lowest scorers in the top four, with 53 goals. Their win over PSG placed them in pole position for the league title, and they built on it with the win over Lens in the last game. Lille will be better defensively for the Montpellier visit as Tiago Djalo returns from suspension, but as they return home after two away matches, they’ll be keen to avoid a repeat of what happened in their last home game – the loss to Nimes. The league leaders have three wins and a loss in the previous five home league matches, with four clean sheets in the process. Jonathan Ikone is a great player, and many teams are interested in this guy. He has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. He is the future of French football. Christophe Galtier is brilliantly leading this team, and he has the great trust of the people from the club.
Montpellier have three losses in the last five matches against Lille. They head to this game unbeaten in their previous ten league matches but with just four wins in the process and have one clean sheet in the last 15 games. No team has conceded more goals than Montpellier in the top 15 in Ligue 1, and this is an area they have to address as they set European aspirations. Montpellier is six points below the UEFA Conference League places and will have to handle this game better than they did the 3-3 draw with Marseille last time out. They took a first-minute lead in the game but, in the end, needed a last-minute goal to salvage a point. Poor defensive performances have really cost the team. Joris Chotard found the proper role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Andi Delort is a great striker, he has the experience, and he is a real team leader.
Lille is the favorite in this match, the goal is to fight for the title, and they have no right to make a mistake.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
