📏 Form Guide

Montpellier LLWLLW

Montpellier, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 3-1 Ligue 1 victory versus Nice.

In that match, Montpellier had 39% possession and 21 attempts at goal with 13 of them on target. For Montpellier, goals were scored by Gaëtan Laborde (18') and Daniel Congré (50', 64'). OGC Nice had 7 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Dante (69') scored for Nice.

It has been a rare occasion in recent games that Montpellier have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that La Paillade have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 10 goals along the way.

Coming into this contest, Montpellier are undefeated in their last 6 league matches at home.

Lyon DLWLWD

In their last game, Lyon drew 0-0 in the Ligue 1 match with Girondins de Bordeaux.

In that game, Lyon managed 55% possession and 20 shots at goal with 3 on target.

Throughout their six previous matches, Rudi Garcia's Lyon have found the back of the net a total of 8 times, giving them the goals scored per game average of 1.33.

Looking at their past form shows that Lyon:

  • haven't beaten Montpellier when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches.
  • are without an away win for the past 2 league games.

👥 Head to head

An examination of their prior head-to-head clashes stretching back to 19/11/2017 shows that Montpellier have won 1 of these and Lyon 2, with the number of drawn matches standing at 3.

A combined sum of 13 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 6 from La Paillade and 7 being from Lyon. That’s an average goals per game of 2.17.

The previous league meeting featuring the two was Ligue 1 match day 3 on 27/08/2019 when it finished Montpellier 1-0 Lyon.

On that occasion, Montpellier had 50% possession and 19 shots on goal with 5 on target. The scorer was Arnaud Souquet (42').

On the other side, Lyon got 14 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target.

The referee was Mikael Lesage.

🗞️ Team News: Montpellier

Montpellier manager Michel Der Zakarian does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go.

In our view, La Paillade could go for a 3-4-2-1 system this time, utilising Jonas Omlin, Pedro Mendes, Hilton, Daniel Congré, Mihailo Ristić, Damien Le Tallec, Jordan Ferri, Arnaud Souquet, Gaëtan Laborde, Teji Savanier and Andy Delort.

🗞️ Team News: Lyon

Thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from, Lyon manager Rudi Garcia does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game.

We are inclined to think that Lyon seem most likely to begin the game with a 3-4-3 formation, going with Anthony Lopes, Joachim Andersen, Marcelo, Jason Denayer, Léo Dubois, Maxence Caqueret, Bruno Guimarães, Maxwel Cornet, Karl Toko Ekambi, Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay.

💡 Prediction

We’re of the opinion that Montpellier will have their work cut out to score goals against this Lyon lineup who we think will emerge victorious.

We therefore see a good battle with a 0-1 winning score for Lyon at the end of this game.

Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
