Ligue 1: Lille vs Montpellier

Lille vs Montpellier Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first match of Round 9 in French Ligue 1, Lille take on Montpellier.

Lille didn’t make good start of the season and after 8 rounds they are standing near the relegation zone with only one win (1-4-3). Home team have very good defence, one of the best in Ligue 1 (conceded only 4 goals in 8 matches), but their main problem is attack. Lille hit the net only twice and that’s very poor. Tonight they are playing against poor Montpellier and they expect important three points.

Montpellier have three points less than Lille. They also have managed to win only once this season, in the previous round when they beat Lorient 2-1. Visitors also see their chance against Lille, but they will have to their best in order to score, while on the other side they will have to secure their net. Visitors have one of the worst defences, conceded 12 goals in 8 matches.

In home team Balmont (5/0 m) is injured, while their first goalkeeper Enyeama (6/0 gk) is out due to suspension. Visitors will be without injured Sabaly (1/0 d) and Sala (4/0 f).
