Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier)
Having endured a difficult 2019/20 season, Montpellier will be looking to make amends by playing out a more impressive campaign this time around. As things stand, they are well on-course to executing just that.

Meanwhile, Lyon have begun the season on a high. With four points from their first two games, Les Gones have emerged as early favorites to challenge for the league title. Expect strong performances from both sides as they go all out for victory.

Surely, Montpellier will not be entirely disappointed by last season’s performances. Despite finishing as low as eighth on the log, there were lots of positives to be taken. At times, they looked unstoppable, showing their winning credentials.

Perhaps, Zakarian will feel by hard-done by FFP’s infamous decision to bring the 2019/20 campaign to an abrupt end. If the season had continued to completion, there was every chance of La Paillade making the cut for continental qualification.

Losing their opening fixture, Montpellier were made to wait for their first points of the new season. Not having to lurk around too long for that first win, Zakarian’s charges recorded a comfortable 3-1 victory over Nice on the last matchday.

As La Paillade locked horns with Nice, they always looked the better side right from kickoff. An early goal from Laborde was backed with a brace from Congre as Montpellier strolled to success. The visitors pulled one back, albeit a consolation, as Montpellier bagged all three points very comfortably.

That victory must have pleased Zakarian as he watched his side put a dent in Nice’s 100% winning start to the season. Now, confidence must be sky-high within La Pallaide’s camp as they head into another difficult game against last season’s Champions League semifinalists Lyon.

Having announced themselves on the European scene last season, Lyon entered the new Ligue 1 campaign in fine form. Coming up against lowly Dijon in their opening fixture, they took the opposition to the cleaners, firing four goals past them.

However, Les Gones failed to build on that emphatic victory when they took on tricky side Bordeaux last time out. By far the better side on the pitch, Lyon’s profligacy cost them a great deal as they were held to a drab goalless draw.

A very difficult game to watch at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, Lyon registered a staggering 20 shots-on-goal but could only get three of them on-target. If they are secure a result against Montpellier this week, their attackers will have to do a better job at hitting the target.

The disappointment of the previous game is likely to spur Les Gones on to a better performance versus La Paillade. There is no doubting this Lyon squad as they earn results on their day. Should Tuesday be one of their days, Montpellier could be in for a long night here.
