Montpellier vs Lens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th January 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Last weekend Montpellier lost away to PSG and whilst the result was expected the score wasn’t and they lost the game 4-0. This would have done little to help confidence in the team and that was the clubs 9th defeat this season.
Overall form for Montpellier has been poor and they have earned just 1 point from their last 15 available. The club arrive in this game in 11th place and they could go 10th with victory but would need Angers to lose.
At home Montpellier have lost six games from 11 and have not won in their own stadium since November.
Lens are in 9th position and are 3 points ahead of their hosts, though a two game unbeaten run came to an end last weekend when they lost 1-0 against Nice.
Lens have done well this season and they could climb up a couple of places more with victory here and perhaps start dreaming of a European finish which would be fantastic for the club.
The away side have actually picked up more points on the road than at home and have 17 currently. Lens won their last away game which was against Marseille winning that game 1-0.

Montpellier vs Lens Prediction
This should be a very good game with plenty of action. Both sides have had their troubles this season, though Montpellier have had more but they should both be safe also.
So this is a game where the teams can take some risks and try for attacking football more which is a plus for us as hopefully that will lead to some goals.
This is a fixture that has them too, and we should concentrate on this market and for smaller stakes predict the correct score.
