Montpellier hosts Olympique Lyonnais in a match from the 28th round
Montpellier hosts Olympique Lyonnais in a match from the 28th round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s examine this game and we will bring you our predictions football 1×2 for it.
This is a game between two teams in the Top 5 of the Ligue 1. Montpellier are 5th in the league standings, while Lyonnais are 4th. But the difference between them is pretty big – 11 points in favour of Olympique Lyonnais.
Montpellier’s record in the Ligue 1 so far shows 14 wins, 8 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five games Montpellier won twice, made two draws and suffered one defeat against the leader PSG.
In the last round Montpellier made a 0-0 draw during the visit to Strasbourg. Both teams had some chances to score a winning goal, but after all the match ended without a winner.
In their last five games Lyonnais are showing a truly terrible form – they have not won even one of their last five matches, losing three times and doing two consecutive draws against Lille and Saint-Etienne.
Olympique Lyonnais’ main goal remains finishing third and qualifying for the Champions League. But with the team’s current form, it won’t be easy. Right now Lyonnais are 5 points behind the 3rd Olympique Marseille, so it’s a serious distance to erase. Especially when you can’t win a game in five consecutive matches.
For Olympique Lyonnais it’s going to be very dissapointing if they miss out on a Champions League participation. Bruno Genesio’s team was playing very good, before this unexplainable slump happened. Now they have to bounce back as soon as possible, because five points behind Marseille is a serious distance.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Ligue 1 game between Montpellier and Olympique Lyonnais. This is a difficult game to predict, so be careful.
