Montpellier vs Olympique Lyonnais Prediction 7 February 2018

Tournament: Coupe de France
Location: Stade de la Mosson
Match date: 07.02.2018 at 20:00

On February 7 2018 at 20:00 at the Stade de la Mosson in Montpellier in the upcoming game of the Coupe de France Round of 16 the local Montpellier are playing against Olympique from Lyon.

In the previous season Montpellier were one of the favorites of the national elite division while this season they obviously have some problems. At the previous stages of the tournament they outplayed Lorient and Pontarlier. In the Ligue 1 Montpellier are on the 6th position with 34 points gained in their 24 games played. Montpellier don’t actually look strong in attack as they have only scored 22 goals while their defense is rather reliable as they have only conceded 20 goals. In their latest domestic matches Montpellier won against Angers 2:1, Lorient 4:3 and Toulouse 2:1.

As for Lyon, they, in their turn, look much stronger in the current season. In the previous rounds of the national cup the Lions outplayed Monaco and Nancy. As for the national championship, Lyon are on the third position in it with 48 points gained in their 23 matches played. Moreover, Lyon look rather dangerous and strong in attack and it let them score 52 goals in the games already played. At the same time they have some obvious problems in defense which didn’t let them concede less than 25 goals. In the latest away matches the Lions lost to Bordeaux 1:3 and outplay Monaco 3:2 and Guingamp 2:0.

Last time the teams met Montpellier won against Lyon with the devastating 4:1 score. Now it’s rather difficult to say who are going to be the favorites of the upcoming match and yet it seems to us that the Lions look a bit stronger in the current season and that’s why we think that they are much more likely to win and kick-off Montpellier from the national cup.
