Montpellier vs Lyon
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 22nd December 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Surely the game of the weekend in France will take place between Montpellier and Lyon the teams that occupy 3rd and 4th place in Ligue 1.
Montpellier are just two points behind Lyon and so would move past them with a win here. Their form has been a little patchy as they lost their last game against Lille and have drawn some matches but even so they have lost just one game in the past month.
The team have been overall strong at home and have lost just 2 games this season here. They have also conceded just six times all season which is a great record but then again they have scored just 13 times when being at home, when we factor in their league position they should have many more.
Lyon remains the genuine heavyweight team and are chasing 2nd place to automatically qualify for next season Champions League, that is all that matters for them. For now they are happy as they have qualified for this seasons knock out and will focus for the next two months on Ligue 1.
Form wise Lyon have just 1 win in their past three games although that victory did occur in their last match which was a 3-0 win over Monaco. Lyon’s away form isn’t the best but at the same time their recent away form is very good with just 1 loss in their last 5 games and they have gone their last three matches unbeaten and scored 8 goals in those games. They remain a very dangerous opponent.
Montpellier vs Lyon: Head to Head
- The last 3 meetings has seen both teams to score.

Montpellier vs Lyon: Prediction
We should see a very exciting and intense game with both teams playing well this season and both on the same level. Our main bet here is to go with history and that is for both teams to score, but we also believe the goals will flow and will opt to see at least 4 scored. Gaetan Laborde has been very good for the home side this season after his switch from Bordeaux and we will back him to score anytime at Stade de la Mosson.
