Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lyon will be looking to build on a routine Coupe de France win over Ajaccio when they host Montpellier at their Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Matchday 25. Les Gones have been producing splendid displays in 2021, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against La Paillade. Rudi Garcia rested several first-team regulars in the French Cup clash, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Montpellier, with both Ekambi and Kadewere returning to the starting XI.
La Paillade, on the other hand, did well to beat Dijon 4-2 in their last league match, but seeing that conceded ten goals in total in the previous four away games in the Ligue 1, we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing side. Experienced attacker Andy Delort is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
