After a goalless draw away at Bordeaux on Friday night, Lyon face another tricky away task against a motivated Montpellier side. Michel Der Zakarian oversaw an impressive display by his players as they were 3-1 winners against Nice 24 hours later and could've scored more too.

After achieving their first win since February, the hosts will be determined to build on that result here. What better way to solidify their European ambitions than with a statement win against the Lyon side who defied odds to reach the Champions League semi-finals last month?

Montpellier vs Lyon Betting Tips

It seems fitting that two sides a point adrift of the European places when play was suspended in March clash in midweek. Montpellier were convincing winners against Nice – who finished fifth, claiming the final Europa League qualification berth.

Despite Lyon's defiant Champions League run, both in Turin and then Lisbon, they too are without European competition this season. Transfer speculation surrounding a handful of their players will impact their rhythm between now and next month's deadline, but that's natural.

Houssem Aouar continues to be linked with a lucrative Arsenal move, while captain Memphis Depay is reportedly close to a Barcelona switch. Aouar came off the substitutes' bench and hit the woodwork last Friday; Depay was left frustrated in a game they dominated without reward.

Given their importance to Rudi Garcia's plans, it's likely both will start here – fitness permitting – and Montpellier's backline could be busy. Experienced central defender Daniel Cogre scored a second-half brace from two corners, with a header and close-range strike.

It's unlikely the 35-year-old will score again here though, against a Lyon side that have registered 47 shots (15 on target) in their first two games.

Montpellier vs Lyon Correct Score Predictions

Montpellier cannot be underestimated and Lyon don't need to be told. However, the visitors' superior H2H record (eight wins, four draws and defeats) provides a psychological boost and I'm predicting a narrow away win here.
