Montpellier and Lille are going against each other in a match for the leading places in Ligue 1. During the weekend Montpellier took a critical victory away against Monaco and are now on the second place in the standing. La Paillade have only one loss during the season. At home, the team have won four of their last five games where they scored at least two goals.
Longtime Lille were on the second place behind PSG, but during the last month, Les Dogues lagged from their chasers. During the weekend Lille missed the chance to beat Lyon, although they scored the first two goals in the game. After this match, Lille prolonged their run of four consecutive fixtures without a win in the French Ligue 1. For the last time, this happened in April this year.
We expect a win for Montpellier in this derby game. Until this match, La Paillade are in a better form and play solid at home. At home this season the team achieved an impressive victory against Marseille with 3-0. Lille are on fourth place in the standing, but this is due to the solid performance at home. In their away games Les Dogues had only two wins, and this is against Dijon and Amiens. The disappointment from the missed victory versus Lyon will negatively affect the players of Lille. I will back Montpellier to Win, with Montpellier 2-0 Correct Score.
