Montpellier will host Lyon on Sunday night in a game that Lyon must win to go back to top of Ligue 1. Montpellier hav put togeth a nice run of form winning three of their last five. Of those three wins one came against Marseille in an impressive display at home. Barrios and Mounier are the key men up front for Montpellier as they are the main goal threats, Montpellier are facing a tough defence here though as Lyon have the second best defence in the league. A win for Montpellier will put them up to fifth with a game in hand and on the cusp of European football.
Lyon need a win to go back to the top of Ligue 1. Lyon have been in a really poor run of form of late and have won only one of their last five in all competitions. Lyon are in need of a win big time, Lacazette is having a career year scoring more than twenty league goals already. With Fekir and Njei helping out with the goals of late some of the pressure has come off Lacazette but the team is still in need of a performance and a win. Gourcuff is the midfield inspiration alongside Fekir and with Lacazette up top this is a talented side and Manager Founier will be looking to bring this side back to the top of the table with a win here at Montpellier.
Taking both teams to score here as both teams are looking solid at the moment. Montpellier are in good form and they will fancy their chances against a lyon team that have been conceding goals and have been unable to finish off games. Both teams should find the net here the question is which team will be good enough to find a winner.
