Team News

  • Lille have no new injury worries, but will still be without Franck Beria, who has a broken hand, while Tulio De Melo is also unavailable due to a groin injury.
  • Adama Soumaoro is also sidelined with back problems.
  • Benjamin Stambouli is expected to be absent for three months for Montpellier after sustaining a fractured foot, while fellow midfielders Jamel Saihi and Joris Marveaux are both still unavailable through injury after missing the win over Bastia.
  • Garry Bocaly has a hip complaint, while goalkeeper Laurent Pionnier is still out with a groin problem.
  • Karim Ait-Fana is still on the sidelines, and Cyril Jeunechamp is out with an indefinite suspension.

Prediction

  • Lille and Montpellier are both looking to move into the upper echelons of the table following indifferent campaigns so far.
  • Les Dogues have won just once in their last six games, and had to come back from a goal down to earn a point against struggling Reims last time out.
  • By contrast Montpellier have showcased improved form in recent weeks, winning three consecutive games and moving into a position to make an assault on the division's top six.
  • Younes Belhanda and Remy Cabella have both been in fine form for La Palliade, and with the likes of Emmanuel Herrera and Anthony Mounier all showing signs of improvement, the visitors will be confident of earning another valuable three points.
  • Expect a fast paced and open encounter with plenty of chances, however it is the visitors who have the momentum going into the game and they have more than enough quality to produce an excellent away win.
