Lyon- Week 16

Montpellier vs. Saint Etienne

 

Match Date: 03 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade de la Mosson

 

Montpellier

A draw to the newly-promoted Caen left Montpellier stuck in the 9th spot of the league table. Although they earned a point during that match, it wasn’t enough to propel their rank in the league table. The stalemate can be also considered as a poor response after experiencing three (3) losses during its last six (6) matches.

 

Saint Etienne

Saint Etienne is the overt football betting favorite in this match. Undefeated in its last 6 matches, there’s a possibility for the team to enter the top three (3).

 

Prediction

Montpellier 1-2 Saint Etienne

 

***

Lyon vs. Reims

 

Match Date: 03 December 2014 (local time

Venue: Stade Gerland

 

Lyon

A 3-0 thrashing from Saint Etienne compels Lyon to win its upcoming encounter. It was their first loss during its last 6 clashes. What was even worse was that it opened opportunity for Bordeaux to outlast them in the ranking.

 

Reims

Reims is undefeated in its 6 previous matches and this form could readily put up a challenge against the mighty Lyon.

 

Reims currently sits in the 8th spot of France’s top-flight league and trails Lyon by five (5) points. Should they win the upcoming clash, there’s a high possibility for the club to penetrate the league’s top five (5). However, they should be careful as Lyon has no intentions of taking this match easily.

 

Prediction

Lyon  1-1 Reims
