Montpellier vs Lille: Our top betting tips

Montpellier have made a good start to the season. Will that continue here? Find out with our Montpellier vs Lille match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Lille won't take three points

Lille have actually fared well against Montpellier in the past; as they have no losses in the last eight meetings between these teams. However, Lille's recent form doesn't inspire a lot of confidence; they've lost two of their last three games, including a humiliating 7:1 defeat at the hands of PSG. To be fair, Montpellier have had their fair share of struggles this season; however, they are coming off back-to-back wins, where they scored nine goals and conceded no goals. Considering Montpellier have the advantage of playing at home, we believe they'll steal at least one point from this match.

Going north of 2.5 goals

The highlight of Montpellier's season so far is an impressive 7:0 win at Stade Brestois. Olivier Dall'Oglio's men have actually been one of the highest-scoring sides in the French top flight; they've scored 15 goals in five league matches, averaging three goals per game. It's worth noting that only one team has scored more goals than Montpellier this season. We would like to point out that Montpellier's matches have mostly been high-scoring; as five of their last six games have seen at least three goals scored, with four of those games going over 3.5. Likewise, Lille have had their fair share of high-scoring games; as four of their last five games saw at least three goals scored. All things considered, this should be a high-scoring game.

Will Montpellier continue their solid start?

Lille might arrive into this game as favourites to win but, actually, it's Montpellier that have made the stronger start to this Ligue 1 season as they sit in fifth spot. Lille aren't far behind though and with just two points to make up on their hosts, the outcome of this game could see the visitors leapfrog Montpellier.

Theo Saint Luce picked up an injury within the first 10 minutes of Montpellier's last match; he joins a lengthy injury list, which includes Wahbi Khazri, Pedro Mendes and Christopher Jullien, amongst others. Also, Teji Savanier and Jonas Omlin will not be available due to suspensions.

Montpellier Predicted lineup – Carvalho, Sacko, Esteve, Cozza, Sakho, Chotard, Ferri, Nordin, Germain, Maouassa, Wahi

Unlike Montpellier, Lille don't have a lot of players in the recovery room; barring Remy Cabella and Timothy Weah, they have a fully healthy squad. It'll be interesting to see how they'll fare against an injury-riddled Montpellier side.

Lille Predicted lineup – Jardim, Diakite, Fonte, Djalo, Ismaily, André, Gomes, Zhegrova, Yazici, Bamba, David
