MOT vs LYN Dream11 Prediction: Montpellier will be attempting to make it back to back wins when they face Lyon in midweek at home. The club impressively beat the then league leaders Nice 3-1 at the weekend and they have the advantage of staying at home for this game also. Currently Montpellier are in 13th place as they lost their opening game against Rennes but a win here would see them climb into the top 10. Daniel Congre scored two goals against Nice and Gaetan Laborde got a goal also and Montpellier look dangerous especially at home. Lyon are in 10th place and have played 2 games so far, beating Dijon 4-1 and then drawing 0-0 away against Bordeaux. If they won and scored a few goals they would go top of the league so there is a lot to play for here. The fact that PSG lost again means a great rival like Lyon could go 7 points clear of the champions, and that presents a very special and rare opportunity.

Montpellier Team News
Having suffered an opening-day defeat to Rennes, the Montpellier faithful would not have felt all that optimistic about their side’s chances when they faced a Nice side looking to secure their third victory in succession. However, Michel Der Zakarian’s men swept aside their opponents with ease as they marched to a 3-1 victory, with defender Daniel Congre netting twice after Gaetan Laborde had opened the scoring for Montpellier. A convincing victory is just what the hosts needed as they prepare to welcome last season’s Champions League semi-finalists to the Stade de la Mosson.
Injury update, unavailability
The home side don’t have injury or suspension problem before coming into this match. Florent Mollet is back for the host in this outing.

Lyon Team News
Lyon’s formidable attacking stars failed to break down the staunch rearguard action of Bordeaux, who kept their third clean sheet in a row after a dogged performance on Friday evening. Rudi Garcia’s men had stormed to a 4-1 victory against Dijon in their first game back, with Barcelona-linked Memphis Depay netting a hat-trick for Lyon in that game, but Les Gones were silenced by Bordeaux and forced to settle for a point in their second outing of the season.
Injury update, unavailability
Lyon are expected to stick to the back three that served them so well during the Champions League tournament in Lisbon. They don’t have a major injury or suspension issue.

Defenders: Hilton, Oyongo, Denayer, Dubois
Midfielders: Ferri, Aouar, Cherki
Forwards: Dembele, Laborde, Depay
Memphis Depay: The Dutch striker could be a huge threat upfront. Depay is one of the most lethal strikers now who has scored 2 goals in 3 matches this season.
