Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
All eyes will be on Stade de la Mosson when Montpellier and Olympique Lyon face each other at Stade de la Mosson in the Ligue 1 round 12. La Paillade are on a three-game losing run in the French top flight, with the team obviously struggling at the back, and they must be low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash. All Mamadou Sakho, Theo Sainte-Luce, Dimitry Bertaud, and Pedro Mendes should miss out with injuries.
Les Gones, on the other hand, have been struggling to find their form ever since key midfielder Lucas Paqueta left the club, and given their six-game winless run in the French top flight, the visitors are unlikely to grab more than one point from the match. Experienced midfielder Corentin Tolisso has joined goalkeeper Julian Pollersbeck in the recovery room after limping off with injury in a 3-2 loss to Rennes.
Highlighted Player (Christopher Jullien):
Christopher Jullien is a professional footballer who plays for Toulouse as a defender. The 195-cm-tall centre-back played for Auxere youth team from 2005 to 2011 and he made his first-team debut for the club on August 24, 2012 in a 2-1 win over Stade Lavallois.
Christopher Jullien scored his first ever goal a week later in a Coupe de la Ligue clash against Dijon. The French defender made 25 appearances in the league for Auxerre and in 2013 he moved to Germany, signing a professional contract with Freiburg. Jullien made only one appearance for the first team, but it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 49 games for the second team. After ending his loan spell with Dijon in the summer of 2016, he signed a four-year deal with Ligue 1 side Toulouse.
Christopher Jullien scored four goals, while providing one assist for his teammates in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign. The French footballer was born on March 22, 1993 in Lagny-sur-Marne and his preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Lyon):
Commonly referred to as Lyon, Olympique Lyonnais is the French club which play their games at the Parc Olimpique Lyonnais with a capacity just a pinch short of 60,000. Lyon is one of the most popular clubs in France with a vast fan base on par with Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille.
The club achieved moderate success during the 1960s and 1970s led by the likes of Bernard Lacombe and Jean Djorkaeff, while the golden era of the French side came at the start of the new millennium when Lyon began to achieve greater success both in France and on the international level.
It was not until 2002 that Lyon won their first ever Ligue 1 title which sparked an ongoing national record-breaking streak of seven successive titles. During that time Lyon were regular participants of the UEFA Champions League. The French club reached quarter-finals on two occasions, while they even played in the semi-finals in the 2009-10 season.
