Montpellier vs Lyon Betting Predictions and Odds
Offensive spectacle in Montpellier?
The “Le Classique” between PSG and Marseille was without a doubt the big French highlight last weekend. Numerous teams took advantage of the second season mistake by the Parisian star ensemble and settled in the upper third of the table. Olympique Lyon was not one of them. The semi-finalist of the Champions League only took one point at home-strong Bordeaux.
The “Gones” had more play, but could not crack the defensive bulwark of the opponent. During the week, Olympique Lyon will continue with the catch-up game against Montpellier. As the odds comparison of the betting base, below, shows, Montpellier vs. Lyon, the guests again in the favorites role according to the odds – bet the “Gones” will again give up?
The fact that Montpellier will not be an easy hurdle should be clear when looking at the direct comparison between “La Paillade” and the guests from Lyon. Across all competitions, Olympique Lyon have only won one win in their last five away games at Montpellier. If you consider what a strong performance MHSC delivered last weekend, winning points on Tuesday evening would by no means be absurd.

Montpellier – Statistics & current form
Montpellier HSC has been lagging behind the great expectations for several years. After the surprising first championship in the club’s history in the 2011/12 Ligue 1 season, things went steadily downhill. In 2016/17 “La Paillade” even finished the season in 15th place in the table.
Recognize upward trend
In the last two years, however, there was at least a slight upward trend. The 2020/21 season started with an unfortunate defeat at Stade Rennes. But “La Paillade” showed morale and was able to compensate for the false start with an impressive home win over OGC Nice. MHSC gave the otherwise strong Nice defense three goals.
Head coach Michel Der Zakarian will have been more than satisfied with the performance of his team. It remains to be seen whether his team will continue their offensive performance on Tuesday evening due to the short recovery time. At home, Montpellier has not yet lost a single home game (across all seasons) this calendar year.
Stade de la Mosson: The fortress of MHSC
In the last season, which ended prematurely after 28 matchdays, Montpellier had an impressive home record. At the Stade de la Mosson, “La Paillade” celebrated ten wins in 14 home games, got two draws and only suffered two defeats. This made MHSC the third strongest home team in the 19/20 Ligue 1 season.
In the summer, the team structure at “La Paillade” remained stable. With a few newcomers, Montpellier has also strengthened itself, including keeper Jonas Omlin from FC Basel. So far, Michel Der Zakarian has been spared personnel restrictions. After the strong performance last weekend, the 57-year-old is unlikely to make any changes in the starting XI.
If Montpellier wins against Lyon, attractive odds above the 3.00 mark are available for tip 1.

Lyon – Statistics & current form
Last season Olympique Lyon caused a sensation on the international stage and was among the top four European teams in the premier class. Although the “Gones” had to cancel the sails in the semifinals against the eventual Champions League winner from Munich, they will hardly be disappointed with the overall result in the premier class 2019/20.
Improve exploitation of opportunities
Olympique Lyon started the 2020/21 season a week later than the league competition. In the first two games of the season there was a win and a draw for the “Gones”. The latter last weekend in Bordeaux. Although Lyon were far superior in terms of play, the defensive bulwark of the opponent could not be cracked.
Offensive star Memphis Depay was even replaced in the final quarter of an hour. The Dutchman currently tops the internal scorer list with three goals but may be leaving Lyon soon. According to current media reports, a transfer to FC Barcelona is imminent. The offensive of the “Gones” would undoubtedly lose its impact.
Is there the first bankruptcy of the season in Montpellier?
Away from home, Lyon didn’t get the best results last season. In 15 away games, the “Gones” gave up nine times and conceded an average of more than one goal per away game. Last weekend, Lyon owed the clean slate largely to Bordeaux’s weak offensive performance.
Not a single shot from the youngest opponent was on his own housing. It is quite possible that the defensive of the “Gones” will be challenged on Tuesday evening. Lyon coach Rudi Garcia will not have to complain about any losses at the away game in Montpellier. It remains to be seen whether the coach of the “Gones” will make changes to the starting XI.
Probable formation of Lyon:
↳ Lopes – Denayer, Andersen, Marcelo – Cornet, Guimaraes, Caqueret, Dubois – Depay – Ekambi, Dembele
Last matches from Lyon:
⚽️ 09/11 2020 Bordeaux 0 – 0 Lyon

Montpellier vs Lyon Betting Odds and Predictions by PicksSoccer Experts
While Montpellier compensated for the botched start of the season with the home win over OGC Nice, Olympique Lyon suffered a small setback last weekend. The “Gones” shared the points in a goalless draw in Bordeaux and could therefore not reflect their playful superiority in the result.
Whether Lyon can master the upcoming away task in Montpellier is not really foreseeable. After all, the CL semi-finalist did not have the best away record last season. If you also consider how strong the Montpellier offensive was on the previous matchday, it would hardly be surprising if Lyon let up in the catch-up game.
