Montpellier vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Lille were one of the most pleasant surprises at the start of the new Ligue 1 campaign. They still are given they hold the 3rd position after 14 rounds of the season. It’s an overwhelming kick off knowing they barely saved the top flight status in the previous term.
Nevertheless, Les Dogues’ form saw a massive slide in recent weeks. Chris Galtier’s men are in a huge crisis coming into this mid-week fixture with Montpellier away at Stade de la Mosson. Lille failed to net more than one goal in past four matches in all competitions. They lost three and drew one in the process. The international break did little to end their poor thread as the team fell 2-0 away at Nice last weekend.
Montpellier vs Lille: Head-to-head
Montpellier have an opportunity to make it all square at 13 wins apiece in the H2H record against les Dogues.
La Paillade were much more successful in fixtures at Stade de la Mosson, though.
The hosts won 10, drew 2 and lost 5 of 17 matches against Lille in Montpellier.
La Paillade took four points from two H2H games with Les Dogues in the previous term of Ligue 1.
Montpellier vs Lille: Prediction
Montpellier have also been enjoying an intriguing Ligue 1 campaign so far in the season. They actually share the third place in the table with Lille as teams are lock on 26 points coming into this fixture on Tuesday.
Michel Der Zakarian’s men are very dangerous in their own backyard where they won four and drew one of past five league matches. They bagged two or more goals in each of last four games at Stade de la Mosson. The impressive streak includes a demolishing 3-0 victory over the likes of Olympique Marseille.
Lille generally claimed most of their points at home where they won 6 and drew 1 of seven games this term. We doubt they will be capable of doing much when they come face to face to face with in-form Montpellier here.
