Montpellier vs Lyon – Coupe de France : In one of the encounters taking place this Wednesday in France, counting towards the Coupe de France’s round of 16.
The local side Montpellier and the visiting side Lyon face off in the city of Montpellier, at the Stade de la Mosson,
on a match between two teams that will meet for the 3rd time this season, after the encounters in Ligue 1, that finished with a 0-0 draw, and in the Coupe de La Ligue, where Montpellier won 4-1 over the visitors.
The home side is making probably the best campaign since the season they were able to win the French Ligue 1’s title, being on the top half of the league table,
with an interesting record, and they can still make a good run in this French Cup, that is, after recently having been eliminated from the League Cup by Monaco.
The team is coming off a globally positive streak of results, losing only 2 matches in the last 2 months (and against only Monaco and PSG), with the aspect that they have already beaten Lyon this season maybe acting as extra motivation for the team.
As for Lyon, they are also making a remarkable campaign, doing well in terms of Ligue 1 and still having in this competition the possibility of building up that good campaign domestically, as well as having a good record in the Europa League.
The team is coming off a less positive streak of results, getting 2 losses on their last 2 matches, which stopped their prior excellent streak of results.
Montpellier vs Lyon – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Lyon that is one of the teams that scores the most goals but also one of the teams that concedes the most goals in France and with a Montpellier that has recently had a lot of goals on their matches (only one of their last 5 matches finished with “Under 2.5 Goals”),
I can only expect a dynamic match with goals, namely on the first 45 minutes of the encounter.
