Both Teams to Score

This will be a tricky fixture for the hosts as they look to extend their title race lead on Friday. Montpellier is unbeaten in their last ten Ligue 1 fixtures and hopes to keep that record when they travel to Lille. The visitors come into this fixture with the tenth best away record in the league having scored in seven of the last eight away fixtures. Lille has the third-best home record in the league with only ten goals conceded in 32 fixtures so far. The hosts have also scored at least a goal in seven of their last eight home fixtures.

Under 2.5 Goals

Despite a 3-2 scoreline in the reverse fixture back in December in 2020, we are looking at two teams that have greatly improved in recent weeks. While Montpellier has only kept two clean sheets since 3rd February, they are unbeaten within that duration. The visitors haven’t been conceding a lot of goals until last weekend when they drew 3-3 with Marseille. Lille is equally a strong team at home. However, they have not been conceding many goals recently, which is why fewer than three goals look plausible.

Montpellier or Draw

Placing a straight win for either side looks is a risky bet. Nonetheless, we don’t expect Lille to find this an easy fixture. The hosts won by 1 goal margin in the reverse fixture that ended 3-2. In this match, Lille welcomes a very ambitious Montpellier that hasn’t lost a game in the 13 fixtures in all competitions. We predict that Montpellier will collect at least a point in this fixture.

Lille vs. Montpellier Preview: Lille Hope to Keep Title Chase Alive

The visitors hope to overturn a narrow defeat of 3-2 last December. Find out more in our match preview below.

Lille

Lille has not lost a match to any of Ligue 1 top five teams this season. A strong performance against the best sides means they could stage another strong show on Friday against 8th placed Montpellier. They have lost on three fixtures so far after 32 fixtures. However, 9 draws have put the hosts in a precarious situation of a 3-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table. However, Lille has not recorded three consecutive wins against Montpellier in their previous 19 meetings. They welcome Montpellier after two consecutive victories in the previous fixtures between them.

Montpellier

It is hard to bet against a much-improved Montpellier. After a 13-match unbeaten streak, Montpelier will hope to keep their good run of form when they travel to Lille on Friday. Lille has not lost to any team in top eight this season. Will Montpellier title the scales this Friday? The visitors have not lost three times in a row to their Friday hosts hence backing them to collect a point here is a plausible argument.
