Ligue 1: Montpellier vs Lorient
Montpellier is still occupying first position above all the odds and it looks like they have no intention to leave it at all. They are three points above second placed PSG and are currently by far the most effective team in French Ligue 1. Especially good they have been playing at home where they have six out of seven wins, with only loss one and a half month ago against already mentioned PSG. As said, hosts are in a great form having won three out of four wins, including last two: Marseille 1:0 at home and 3:1 Sochaux on the road last weekend. Being in a great mood its logical to expect them to win tonight too as they host quite weaker team than the hosts were winning against in recent weeks. Led in attack by Giroud, who is in fantastic form, it’s obvious that Lorient defense will have many problems stopping them.
Lorient is currently holding seventh position which is quite high considering their reputation. However, many teams have similar number of points and it’s a position which can easily slip them away. Their position is mainly based on their good home performances, meanwhile they have pretty poor away 1-2-4 away record. Lorient lost last three matches on the road in Ligue 1: Rennes, Brest, Evian were all better then them. Having said that, it’s obvious that they can’t hope for good results when visiting leaders tonight.
Hosts were beating much better teams at home this season than Lorient is, there is no reason to doubt in another their home win at very nice odds.
