Olympique Lyonnais is hosting Montpellier at Groupama Stadium in round 25 in the French Ligue 1.
Lyon is still going strong, and they are now on a 5-game winning streak during which they scored massive 16 goals while conceding only 2 goals. Lyon has scored 50 goals so far this season while conceding 20 goals, and they are in second place with 52 points. I for one am surprised with Lyon’s success this season, and I think they might win the title. Lyon has beaten Ajaccio in their French Cup game earlier this week, and they are advancing to the next stage. In their last Ligue 1 game, Lyon was playing against Strasbourg at home, and they were the dominant team with 70% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a high 89% of the correct passes. Lyon has had another fantastic game, and they have won this match 3-0. Since the season started, Depay has been in fantastic form since the start of the season, and he has scored 13 goals and has added 6 assists, while Ekambi added 11 goals and 5 assists. Kadewere has added 9 goals. One more important thing for Lyon is that their injury list is clear, and that will give them an even bigger advantage in this game. Lyon is a dangerous team this season, and I think they might win the title, I hope they do.
After 9 games without a win, Montpellier is now on a 2-game winning streak during which they scored 6 goals while conceding 2 goals. Even with their bad streak, Montpellier was able to stay pretty high in the standings, and they are now in 11th place with 32 points, 39 scored goals, and 44 conceded goals. Montpellier will not be seeing the Europa League next season as they are massive 16 points from it. In their last game against Dijon at home, Montpellier was more than solid with 59% of ball possession, impressive 11 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 13 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Montpellier conceded a goal early in the 5th minute, but they scored 3 goals in 13 minutes in the second half while adding one more goal in the 91st minute. Montpellier has won this match 4-2. Delort and Laborde have each scored 9 goals for Montpellier so far this season, while Laborde added 7 assists, while Delort added 5 assists. There are no injuries in Montpellier, but a lot of their players are in danger of being suspended. Montpellier is an average team in the Ligue 1, and they are right where they are supposed to be, in the middle of the standings.
When playing at home, Lyon has not lost to Montpellier in their last 4 games, while Lyon is on a 5-game winning streak. Because Montpellier has been playing well in the attacking end, I think they might score a goal here, but I’m still sticking with Lyon at home.
