Bruno Genesio’s Lyon are showing confident results in recent matches as the team is unbeaten in last 5 matches and took 13 points in them. Such spurt allowed the team to climb up to the third position after 32 rounds. The team have 52 points with 52-34 overall goal difference. Lyon have taken 15 wins, 7 draws and 10 defeats so far in the Ligue 1 matches. Lyon are less confident on the road than at home but also take points quite consistently at other stadiums. They got 19 points in 16 away matches with 19-21 goal difference.
Lyon have slight advantage in the head-to-head record between the teams. However, Montpellier were victorious in the reverse match this season (4-2). The hosts of the match are clearly on bad conditions while the visitors show impressive form and consistency. This is why we expect Lyon to be closer to victory in this match.
Prediction for the match: Lyon to win with +0.0 Asian handicap.
