Our Best Free Predictions for Montpellier vs Lille

Lille has failed to replicate their sterling performance last season. Three wins, four draws and five losses on the road, however, gives them a modest rating on away record. In this trip to Montpellier, Lille look to recover from two losses in a row but it could prove difficult playing away from home and with only three wins in 13 trips. The best free Ligue 1 predictions by Football Whispers for this game are as follows:

BTTS @ 7/10 (1.70)

Lille and Montpellier have recently experienced terrible defending. As a result, both teams are struggling with inconsistency. For example, Montpellier lost four of their last five games across all competitions during which they couldn’t stop opponents from scoring. The hosts leaked ten goals or averagely 2.0 goals in that run. The visitors also failed to keep a clean sheet in the last five games, conceding 11 goals or 2.2 goals on average. Moreover, both teams scored in the last four meetings. These records back our pick on both teams to score in this game.

Over 2.5 @9/10 (1.90)

Poor defending is a big worry for both teams before this game. It is also noteworthy that Montpellier scored in four of the last five outings, an identical scoring record to Lille’s run in as many past games. We expect both teams to score and also more than two goals in this game.

Montpellier vs Lille Game Preview, Team News and Lineups

This fixture between Montpellier and Lille will be about getting back to a winning run. Both teams lost their last two games, a performance the teams will want to forget as soon as this Saturday. Notably, defensive challenges have been the biggest worries for both teams recently. The hosts leaked four goals and failed to keep a clean sheet in the last five games. On the flip-side, Lille leaked seven goals in their last two games. A 5-1 home thrashing against PSG was the lowest moment for the reigning champions, a result that negates their win against the Parisians in a Cup fixture at the start of the season.

On the other hand, Montpellier lost 3-2 to Saint-Etienne and hope this home game could bring good tidings to as they seek top five place.

The hosts are only three points shy of top five and while a win in this game could get them closer to the top, they need to widen the gap between them and Lille to five points. Currently, only two points sit between these teams and given their recent defensive flops, the game could end in favour of either side. It explains why our tipsters have settled on the goal market for this match.

Montpellier predicted lineup: Bertaud, Souquet, Cozza, Sakho, Ristic, Mollet, Ferri, Chotard, Gioacchini, Wahi and Germain.

Lille predicted lineup: Grbic, Celik, Botman, Gudmundsson, Fonte, Weah, Andre, Onana, Bamba, Arfa and David.
