Note: Odds from Netbet are subject to change.

Goals on both sides

Both Lille and Montpellier have demonstrated scoring prowess since the start of the new season. With three games played, Lille has four goals while Montpellier has eight goals. While Lille seems to be on a downward spiral after lifting the Ligue 1 trophy last season, we think the hosts will want to put up a fight for points in this fixture. A goal for the hosts is highly probably. The visitors have scored at least twice in each of their first three matches hence should find the net again in the fourth game of the season.

Over 2.5: Yes

This is likely to be a high scoring fixture. Montpellier is especially a high scoring prospect, the more reason we have steered clear of a straight victory prediction in our three picks.

The hosts to score first

Montpellier doesn’t have a good record against the hosts. The visitors have lost 10 times, drawn five and won only three games against Lille. And while we are tipping them to score at least once in this game, Montpellier’s defence has leaked nearly as many goals (7) as they have scored in three games (8). For that, Lille has a better chance of scoring first, thanks to home advantage and the fact that Lille has never lost to Montpellier in the last six meetings.

Game Preview: Montpellier Faces the Reigning Ligue 1 Champions in Match Week Four

Another interesting fixture to watch this weekend is Lille vs Montpellier. The visitors will attempt to break a long-standing bad record of 3D and 3L to Lille in the last six meetings. While Montpellier’s season has kicked off on a relatively good note, the visitors are wary of a weak defence coming to this match. Montpellier will also play their second away game, having drawn the first one 3-3 at Reims.

Hopefully, head coach, Olivier Dall’Oglio fixes his teams defence for better performance on the road because things could get tricky against 2020/21 Ligue 1 winners, Lille. The visitors have conceded four and scored four on the road in one only game, another bad record that threatens their prospects of winning this match. On the flipside, Lille’s only home game this season was a 4-0 loss to Nice, which equally puts a big question on the preparedness of the reigning champions this season.
