Montpellier vs Lyon Today’s Soccer Tips
Strong start to the season for Lyon, 2 rounds 2 wins with 9 goals scored and none conceded. The Lyon team, despite losing important parts in this summer market, such as Fekir, NDombelé or Mendy, have been able to surgically find alternatives without weakening them, and are now seen as probably PSG’s great title contender.
Sylvinho, who makes his debut as a team head coach, can take advantage of a moment of unsteadiness at PSG to make a strong start to the season and build an advantage that will allow them to manage at the end of the season, just as Monaco of Leonardo Jardim 3 seasons ago.
Dembelé and Depay have been a jigsaw puzzle for the opposing teams with 3 goals each, they are in great form, but this start would not be possible due to the great work done by midfield, such as Aouar and Tousart.
Marçal and Rafael are in doubt for this meeting.
Lyon’s journey has a traditionally complicated journey, but Montpellier, despite having started the season badly, is always a home team who can steal a lot of points from top teams.
Lyon for example have not won here in the last 2 seasons, last season PSG and Marseille were defeated here, which shows that it is always complicated to travel the so-called big teams to Montpellier.
With just 1 point from their first two games, home defeat by Rennes and a draw in Bordeaux, Montpellier are at the tail of the table, but we are still at the start of the season and nothing to worry about.
However, the whole team wants to react in this match at home against Lyon, and a positive result will motivate the team for the next matches.
Injured Savanier is very likely to be left out, Mollet and Sambia are in doubt.
Montpellier vs Lyon Our Soccer Betting Tips
Auspicious start for Lyon this season if Sylvinho’s team manages to maintain this level can clearly enter the title fight with PSG. But playing in Montpellier is always tricky, a home team that traditionally suffers few against top teams and can steal points from these teams on a regular basis. Depay and Dembelé have done a lot of damage in these first two matches, but here they will face a very tight defense that won’t give them much room to move around, so I think this could be a goalless encounter.
Bet Tips: Under 3 goals
