Montpellier vs Lyon
Coupe de France
Date: Wednesday, 7th February 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Montpellier and Lyon games are usually full of excitement and goals and with both teams out of the honours regarding Ligue 1 we have a real chance to see a very interesting game unfold on Wednesday night.
Montpellier are now in the top six and apart from their recent 4-0 loss to PSG have been in solid form. They haven’t lost at home since December and have just 1 loss in their last six games in front of their own fans.
Despite beating PSG, Lyon slipped 11 points behind with a loss to Bordeaux. But the club remain a huge threat either home or away. Their are goals all over the squad, and had PSG not had such an amazing season Lyon could well be top of the league. The loss to Bordeaux was only Lyon’s 2nd defeat away from home all season, and Montpellier will realise they will have to be at their best to get to the next round.

Montpellier vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon are a great side who will step up for this game. We have to remember that they had to overcome Monaco in the last round and that was away from home. Montpellier of course have a chance for the win being at home, but we will take the risk on Lyon. They do not want to end this season with no trophies.
