Preview:
Olympique Lyonnais and Montpellier meet at Stade de Gerland, in a match for the 15th round of the Ligue 1. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 4 wins and 1 draw in the last 5 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 19‑10‑2014, in a match for the Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais won by (5‑1). The goals of the match were scored by Y. Gourcuff (36' and 47' ), N. Fekir (38' ), A. Lacazette (82' ) and S. Malbranque (88' ), for Olympique Lyonnais, and by S. Tiéné (54' ), for Montpellier. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Montpellier presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Montpellier

The away team is currently in the 14th position of the league, with 15 points won, after 4 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Nantes, by (2‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Reims, by (3‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 8 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 21 conceded. In the last 6 away league matches Montpellier has a record of 3 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 3 points out of 18 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 6 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (3 out of 6 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 14 of the last 19 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 19 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 8 of their 17 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

In this match, Montpellier will have to try to do better than in the last away matches, since they haven’t won an away match for Ligue 1 yet and tied the last 2. In this match against Lyon, in the 2nd position of the league, Montpellier should struggle to reach its goals.

Confirmed Lineup: L. Pionnier, Hilton, M. Deplagne, D. Congré, R. Bensebaini, J. Roussillon, W. Rémy, R. Boudebouz, B. Dabo, J. Martin, C. Ninga.
Coach: F. Hantz.

Betting suggestion:

Lyon is a strong team and is in the first positions of the league. Moreover, they have been very strong at their stadium, where they have a record of 4 consecutive wins. On the contrary, Montpellier is in bottom half of the table and hasn’t won a single away match yet: in 6 away matches they have lost 3 and tied another 3. Therefore, Lyon is clearly the favourite, so a bet in their favour is of good value.
