Montpellier – Lyon | 15/09/2020

Montpellier HSC will endeavour to build on their weekend victory over Nice when they lock horns with Lyon at the Stade de la Mosson on Tuesday evening. In contrast, Lyon were unable to break down the resolute defence of Bordeaux and played out a goalless stalemate with Les Girondins in their second game of the 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign.

Montpellier finally have points on the board, crushing Nice after winning both halves by a one-goal margin on Saturday. The result meant that ‘Le MHSC’ are now unbeaten in six Ligue 1 (L1) home games (W5, D1), with an average winning margin of 1.40 goals in second halves across the victories.

The hosts must focus all the way to the end if they are to win. Albeit inconsequentially, they conceded beyond the hour mark to Nice on September 12, and that represented a continuation of a habit from last season, where Montpellier shipped 70% of their home league ‘goals against’ between the 61st minute and FT.

With each of their last four L1 wins coming by a 2+ goal margin, Lyon have clear destructive potential. Overall, they averaged 1.0 penalty goals per match therein. Six of the eight halves across those wins saw Lyon win 1-0, and do so via a penalty on three occasions.

Contrary to the above, Lyon are winless in three league visits to Montpellier (D2, L1), each of which have seen them fail to score before HT. Meanwhile, six (W3, D1, L2) of their last seven L1 trips to Montpellier’s turf have seen the HT points distribution honoured at FT
