Competition: French Ligue 1
Market: Lyon to win against Montpellier
Odds: 8/13 @ Ladbrokes
Olympique Lyonnais host Montpellier in the French Ligue 1 this evening, and are big favourites to pick up all three points given the contrast in form between the two sides. Lyon are second in the table after 14 games ahead of tonight’s meeting, while the struggling visitors are languishing in the bottom-half.
Lyon are coming off the back of three wins from their last four league games, and are desperate to try and put pressure on runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain. Currently 13 points adrift, Lyon also want to try and extend their lead from the chasing pack to push for a Champions League spot for the following campaign.
Montpellier aren’t likely to give them much of a challenge with the visitors winless on the road this season. Dropped points in all six of their away games will give Lyon confidence of picking up all three points tonight, and Ladbrokes are giving odds of 8/13 for the home side to come out on top at the Stade de Gerland.
Victory for Lyon could see them open up a gap between the rest of the top-four, while Montpellier risk slipping further down the table with a defeat.
