Montpellier vs Lille: Preview & Prediction
This 35th day of the Ligue 1 could be decisive for Montpellier and Lille in their race for the maintenance. They are not very far from their goal and a draw could satisfy these two formations.
Currently, these two teams are elbowed in the soft belly and a victory would officially maintain the Ligue 1. In recent years, the results have been rather favorable to the Lille, but watch out, Montpellier will have a say.
In recent weeks, Montpellier has won the two matches it needed to almost ensure its maintenance in Ligue 1, a success in Caen and in front of FC Lorient, on the same score of 2 goals to 0.
These two victories allowed Montpellier to go to the Parc des Princes without any pressure and despite their defeat 2-0 in front of the PSG, they still have 6 lengths ahead of the red zone.
Even if Montpellier is not regular in its performances, the maintenance is approaching. Jean Louis Gasset’s protégés alternate ups and downs in their walls in 2017, successes before SC Bastia, Saint Etienne and FC Lorient or some failures against AS Monaco (1-2), Guingamp ( 1-1), the FC Nantes (2-3) …
The LOSC will therefore try to take advantage of it, but the Lille are also not regular on this end of the season. They count a length more than the Montpellier, so without folly, they will come to seek a point in the Herault.
