During last week Lyon qualified to the UEFA Europa League Play Offs and deserved 2:1 triumph over Amiens on the road in the Ligue 1, having conceded a goal on the ninth minute of the game, the side laboured the victory on the 94th minute of the fight with the rival’s unconverted penalty on the 89th minute of the clash. Concerning the French elite division, the club shares the second-fourth positions in the table with Monaco and Marseille, having collected 35 points. “Lyonnais” will start their pace in the Coupe de la Ligue on the current stage. Lyon conducted 12 encounters on the road in this season, resulting in seven wins, three draws and two losses.
Lyon have not been broken by Montpellier across five head-to-heads, having got four triumphs and single draw in them. The rivals have met in this season already and recorded 0:0 draw in Lyon on the 19th of November. This Wednesday a number of scored goals shouldn’t be expected either.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
