            Lyon vs Montpellier Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Lyon will be looking to continue their push for European football in Ligue 1 on Sunday afternoon when Montpellier make the trip to the Groupama Stadium.

            OL go into the weekend in seventh position, following a strong month in April seeing them boost their chances of attaining a European spot. With just five games remaining in France’s top tier, the 16-point gap to the top three and Champions League football is an impossibility. However, Lyon will be hopeful of catching up to a Lille and Monaco who currently occupy UEFA Conference League and Europa League places, respectively. Lille are six points away in fifth and Monaco are an eight-point jump up in fourth.

            Montpellier head into Sunday’s 16:05 pm kick-off without the weight of any pressure, sitting comfortably in mid-table. The southern France outfit are 12th in the standings, with an 11-point cushion to the bottom four meaning that their Ligue 1 status will surely be secured as the curtain begins to come down on another season in France’s top division.

            Sunday’s hosts have struggled to mount a strong challenge for European football for most of the season, seeing them set to miss out on UCL football yet again. Lyon have managed a bit of a resurgence in April, winning four of their last five league games.

            The month started with a surprise 1-0 win away to leaders PSG, followed up with victories over Rennes and Toulouse. Laurent Blanc’s side then suffered a 2-1 defeat in the Derby des Olympiques, with Marseille picking up an away win two weeks ago, but Lyon were able to bounce back with a win last weekend away to a Strasbourg side fighting to stay in the division. Former Aston Villa midfielder Morgan Sanson put the hosts in front early on before goals from defender Castello Lukeba and midfielder Maxence Caqueret turned the tie before half-time. Despite a late Lukeba red card, Lyon were able to hold on and take all three points.

            Montpellier are also in great form ahead of the trip to Lyon after impressive back-to-back wins in the league. Despite Teji Savanier’s red card early in the second half, Arsenal academy graduate Stephy Mavididi scored the only goal of the game as Montpellier claimed the win over a strong fifth-place Rennes side who themselves are fighting for a place in Europe. Michel Der Zakarian’s side went one step better with a massive result last time out away to another team in the battle for European football, beating fourth-place Monaco 4-0.

            Lyon Team News

            The main Lyon threat will be captain Alexandre Lacazette who will lead the line for Les Gones. The former Arsenal man has been on fire in front of goal since returning to his boyhood club on a free transfer in the summer. The 31-year-old has 20 Ligue 1 goals this season as he chases down Kylian Mbappe for the Ligue 1 Golden Boot award. The PSG superstar has 23 goals so far this season, whilst Lille’s Jonathan David is currently in second place on 21.

            Lukeba’s suspension means that he will be unavailable for Sunday, but other than that Laurent Blanc will have a full team to choose from.

            Montpellier Team News

            Montpellier will also be looking to a former Arsenal man in Mavididi to inspire them at the Groupama on Sunday. The English winger has two goals and an assist in his last two outings for La Paillade, coming off the bench in both of those. It gives Der Zakarian the dilemma of whether he should start Mavididi, given his fine form, or continue utilising him as an impact sub.

            Teji Savanier will continue to be a big miss for Montpellier following his three-game suspension picked up against Rennes. The 31-year-old has been influential for his side this season, notching up ten goals and an assist so far as he drives his team forward. His aggression has come back to bite him again though, with it being the captain’s third red card of the season.
