Reason for Montpellier vs Lyon Predictions
Montpellier is a great team, they play attractive football and have quality players in their squad. In the last round, the hosts beat Nice 3: 1 at home and showed strength, and they are expecting this clash full of confidence. The goal of this season is securing the place in the continental competitions, which the home side failed to do in the latest campaign when they finished in the 8th spot. Daniel Congre scored two goals in the match against Nice, and this 35-year-old player commands the defense. Damien Le Tallec fit well into the new environment, he also had great games in the Red Star, and he was in the ideal 11 in the Europa League several times. Andy Delort is the best striker of the team, he manages well in the penalty area, and many clubs felt that. Bastian Badu is injured and won’t be available for this match.
Lyon has high ambitions in the Ligue 1, they played great in the Champions League, and it will be an exciting fight for the trophy in the top flight. The visitors failed to beat Bordeaux in a difficult away game in the last round, despite having a lot of good chances. Last season they finished in seventh place and were one of the biggest underachievers in the competition. They have a lot of young players who play excellent and attractive football with a lot of goals. Midfielder Houssem Aouar has found the right role in the team, he is a real leader in the middle of the field, and he plays well in the French national team. Memphis Depay is the best player of the club, he has excellent dribbles, his greatest strength is speed, and this guy is unstoppable. Moussa Dembele is the starter in every game and played great last season, he is a real team leader, and he scored a lot of important goals. Lyon will have a hard time keeping this goal scorer as many clubs are interested in his signing. Rudi Garcia plans to bring in some exciting players and further strengthen the team. Jeff Reine-Adelaide will not play due to injury.
Montpellier will leave the role of favorites to Lyon, the victory of the visiting team and essential points are expected.
Both teams are playing in great shape, and we think this game should go over 2.5 margin. It will be a great fight between these two rivals, a real football spectacle is expected.
