OSC Lille vs Montpellier 16.04.2021

Lille’s grand quest to break PSG’s monopoly of the Ligue 1 title in recent years continued last week on Friday with a 2-0 win at Metz which maintained their slim three-point cushion at the top of the standings with just 6 matches to play.

Montpellier meantime played out to a thrilling 3-3 at home to sixth-place Marseille as the two teams went back and forth with each team looking to secure a coveted place in Europe next season.

We expect another lively encounter here. However, with the finishing line drawing ever so close and Lille still brimming with confidence stemming from their critical win over PSG, we are backing them to maintain their strong finish to the season by picking up all three points on offer here.
