Montpellier vs Lyon Betting Tips: Expect a Lot of Goals in an Emotional Game

20:00 Sunday 14 May 2017

Match Preview

Lyon are approaching the game in Montpellier in a desperate mood. On Thursday, they gave their utmost effort in the second leg of Europa League semifinals against Ajax and won 3-1, but went out because of the 4-1 defeat in the first leg. Lyon are physically tired, emotionally exhausted, and might not be ready to concentrate on Ligue 1. That most definitely affects our Montpellier vs Lyon picks. However, Lyon should take this game seriously because they still need a point to finish in the fourth place ahead of resurgent Marseille.

Montpellier are almost safe, six points above the relegation zone with two games remaining, but would love to take at least a point to make that mathematically certain. They are a rather attractive side but luck was not on their side as they lost three matches in a row to nil. We should consider that making our Montpellier vs Lyon predictions.

Montpellier vs Lyon Preview and Betting Advice

Making our Montpellier vs Lyon betting tips, we should note that Lyon have a great going forward but significant problems in defense. At least three goals were scored in each of their last seven matches in all competitions, and that shouldn't be expected to change with Montpellier who love open football. The Ligue 1 game between the teams in September produced six goals as Lyon won 5-1. Such result is difficult to predict because of Lyon's situation, but we can expect a lot of action, and the odds on over 2.5 goals are good at 1.53. You can also be bolder and use the odds on over 3.5 goals at 2.25.
