Les Pailladins have picked up six points from their last six Ligue 1 matches on the road.

Match Preview

The Kids welcome Montpellier HSC to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match. Lyon were 0-1 winners in the reverse fixture back in November. This ended Montpellier’s run of three consecutive wins in this head to head. It also means Lyon are now looking for their first league double over Montpellier since the 2016/17 season.

Olympique Lyonnais come into the match on a run of two home wins in a row. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Gones lost their last league match away to Stade Brestois. Expected goals of 2.6 to 1.2 in favour of Lyon indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match. Moussa Dembele scored their only goal but had seven shots in the match including three big chances and will feel he maybe should have grabbed another for his side. Regardless, he now has 15 league goals this season for Lyon and is the 1.75/1 favourite to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 2-1.

Their opponent on Saturday, Montpellier HSC, come into the match on a run of four league games without a win and have failed to score in each of their last three league matches. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Paladins lost their last league match away to RC Lens. Expected goals of 1.0 to 0.2 in favour of Lens indicates perhaps it was a fair result even if the late second goal was a little harsh. The Les Pailladins fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance though. They had nine shots and four on target but all were from outside the box with none within 20 yards of the Lens goal. The final score of the match was 2-0.

Stephy Mavididi is Montpellier HSC’s top scorer with eight goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 4/1 to score against Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday.

Olympique Lyonnais team news

Maxence Caqueret (meniscal injury), Rayan Cherki (metatarsal fracture), and Sinaly Diomandé (ankle surgery) will be unavailable for The Kids due to injury on Saturday.

They may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against Stade Brestois in their last league match.

Montpellier HSC team news

Mihailo Ristic is suspended for the match against Lyon. Injuries will also rule out Thibault Tamas (knee surgery) for the trip to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

They may look to shuffle their deck voluntarily having lost against RC Lens in their last league match.
