Lille vs Montpellier: Prediction and Betting Tips
Lille on the right track to claim the title
With every match being very crucial in Lille’s quest to win their first Ligue 1 title since 2011 as the season nears its end, Les Dogues took a big stride towards winning the title by beating their main challengers PSG 1-0 in Paris in the 31st round. Now it’s up to Christophe Galtier’s men to finish the job as we head to the final straight of the season.
The main reason for their good form has been their defense. Lille have conceded 19 goals in 32 matches the lowest in Ligue 1. They have two clean sheets in their last two matches winning both matches. Overall Galtier’s team has kept 18 clean sheets.
Lille will be looking to keep up the momentum as they have won three of their last five matches having lost one and drawn one in the other two. They have scored in their last four home games. Lille failed to score at home in just two matches.
Montpellier looking for a better defensive performance
Montpellier go into this match having been unbeaten in their last ten games. Coach Michel Der Zakarian wants to continue this form and challenge for European spots. La Paillade are six points behind fifth-placed Lens and a couple of good performances might see them challenging Lens.
Montpellier have the worst defensive record among the top 15 clubs in Ligue 1 with an average of 1.66 goals conceded per game. With just one clean sheet in their last 15 matches, coach Der Zakarian has to find a solid defensive tactic as they visit Lille since the hosts have only one aim in this game and that is to win.
- Lille are unbeaten in five matches against Montpellier
- Lille have won three of their last five home games
- Lille have four clean sheets in five home games
- Montpellier have one win in eight away matches
- Montpellier have one clean sheet in 15 matches
- Montpellier have won four of their last ten matches
Lille vs Montpellier Prediction
Coach Galtier will make sure his players are totally focused for this game and won’t give their opponents any chances to cause surprises. As we have seen throughout this season, Lille are a very good side both defensively and offensively and we think they have enough capability to overcome this Montpellier side. We are backing a Lille win.
