Montpellier- week 13

Lyon vs. Guingamp

 

Match Date: 09 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade Gerland

 

Lyon

Lyon is one of the clubs that was able to snatch a come from behind win last week. Pitted against Nice, the online betting favorite responded well to their opponent’s first goal. Several minutes after Gregoire Puel scored Nice’s first goal, Lyon’s trusted warriors, Steed Malbranque and Alexander Lacazette netted goals to secure the coveted win.

 

It is expected that the club will once again dominate when it goes against the lowly Guingamp.

 

Guingamp

Fully aware of its opponent’s strength, Guingamp shall capitalize on its win against Bastia to prevent a thrashing or at the very least, force a draw against Lyon.

 

Guingamp has been struggling at the rock bottom part of the table for quite some time now. Hopefully, their most recent victory will inspire them to clinch more wins to improve its rank.

 

Prediction

Lyon 3-1 Guingamp

Bastia vs. Montpellier

 

Match Date: 08 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade Armand Cesari

 

Bastia

Bastia will try to put their recent defeat behind to get back on its feet and fish three (3) crucial points off their match against Montpellier.

 

Guingamp stunned Bastia last week, when Guillaume Gilet netted an own goal that resulted to a frustrating defeat.

 

Bastia has the home court advantage and it will probably exploit this edge to secure an important win.

 

Montpellier

If Bastia boasts of its home court advantage, Montpellier will be capitalizing on its well-deserve win against Evian. The club is back to the top 10 after snatching a win against Guingamp and will most likely to continue such winning streak after suffering two (2) consecutive losses prior to the Guingamp face-off.

 

Prediction

Bastia 1-2 Montpellier
