Montpellier HSC vs Lille Tips and Prediction
Montpellier has had a strong start to the new season after finishing in the bottom half of Ligue 1 for the first time in five years last year. With three victories and two losses, they are in fifth place heading into the weekend.
The victory over newly promoted AC Ajaccio on Wednesday made it two victories in a row after their thrashing of Brest away from home last weekend. Olivier Dall’Aglio’s team regularly engages in feisty contests; in their last three games, they have been shown two red cards and their opponents have been shown three.
Arnaud Nordin’s first goal came after 28 minutes, and Romain Hamouma’s departure nine minutes later seemed to guarantee another lopsided victory. Although stand-in goalkeeper Mathis Carvalho was not actually required to make a single save despite the visitors firing 15 shots in total over the course of the entire game, Jonas Omlin’s straight red card for preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity on the stroke of halftime made the second half a dicey affair than perhaps it should have been.
Against Lille on Sunday, Dall’Aglio will be hoping his team can continue their winning streak, although the 2020–21 champions are a stronger foe than any of their prior games After winning Ligue 1 for the first time in ten years and being eliminated from the Champions League in the group stage, Lille, of course, experienced a significant comedown last season and ultimately finished in 10th place.
Although it has been a mixed start for the former Roma manager so far with two victories, one draw, and two losses, new head coach Paolo Fonseca will be expecting to significantly improve on last season’s poor championship defence with no European distractions this time around.
Midweek, Jonathan Bamba gave his team an early advantage over Nice, but the visitors immediately came back with goals from Andy Delort and Nicolas Pepe. Against Montpellier, a team that unexpectedly won Ligue 1 only a few years ago, Fonseca will be seeking for a response on Sunday.
Lille has fared better away from home so far this season, and we anticipate that trend to continue on Sunday.
The visitors definitely have higher talent on paper and significantly fewer injury and suspension problems than Montpellier’s opponents in recent weeks’ matchups.
