Best Tip: Over 1.5 goals

We do not expect to see a a bore-draw or a slim 1-0 win here, and instead are tipping over 1.5 goals. That means that Montpellier and Lorient will score a minimum of two between them during 90 mins. This is based on each side's recent form stats, as well as past records of their head-to-head clashes. We give it a probability of 79%. The bookmakers have it at 1.22.
