Lille host Montpellier on matchday 18 of Ligue 1. The home side is third in the league but has just four points more than their next opponents, who are in tenth place.
Despite a poor run in the Champions League, having only scored one point in the group stage, Lille has had a good campaign in the French league. Lille have not lost in both games last season and playing at their stadium their last defeat against Montpellier was in 2011. Lille comes to this match with a run of three consecutive league wins, all of them for 1-0.
Reinildo Mandava, Adama Soumaoro, and Timothy Weah are out of the game.
Until their defeat against Paris Saint-Germain last weekend, Montpellier had come from a run of seven straight games without losing. In the last seven games only one has not produced more than 2.5 goals: draw with Saint Etienne the only one without goals. The team record is not the best in away matches: they have not won any of their eight matches.
Pedro Mendes and Daniel Congre are suspended. Nicolas Cozza and Jordan Ferri are injured. Kylian Kaiboue is in doubt.
Lille is in a good moment in the championship and has a good record in home games against Montpellier. Our bet goes to a Lille win.
