Montpellier vs Lille French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Montpellier vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 23rd December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).

Montpellier have a very tough game at home to the current league leaders Lille in midweek. The home side have earned 7 points from their last 5 games and need to find a bit more consistency one suspects to be taken seriously.

Montpellier has the chance to go to 4th place with victory but should get at least 5th and would go on to 30 points and find themselves right in the mix.

Recent home form has been a big worry though and they have lost 4 of their last five games here. Their last game at home ended in a 2-0 defeat against Metz.

Lille have just played PSG at home and that game ended 0-0. PSG dominated possession however they only managed 1 shot on target for the whole game and Lille would have been happy with that.

Not many people would have expected Lille to be top of the league and if they win this match they will be guaranteed to be top as 2020 comes to an end.

Lille have only lost 1 game away from home however they have not performed as well as they could have on the road and have picked up 12 points from 21.

Montpellier vs Lille: Head to Head

  • The last time the clubs played here Lille won 1-0.

Montpellier vs Lille: Prediction

Montpellier is not an easy ground to go to but the home side who are sure to be fired up for this game simply are not getting the right results.

Lille have been brilliant but away they haven’t always been convincing, but we do expect them to power through for the win. The fact of ending the year in 1st place is a big motivation for the club.

There are goals in this Lille side too and that is also a market we will be looking into. An away win.

Montpellier vs Lille: Bet Tips:
