Off the back of a five-game winless run, Montpellier look set to struggle in this clash with Lens on Friday night. The visitors make the trip having won four of their last five in Ligue 1, as they move back up the table after a tough start.

The away side have strung together an unbeaten run after a tricky start, jumping up to sixth in the standings. They meet a Montpellier side who have been beaten in six of their seven clashes with sides in the top eight, which makes the visitors look good for an away win.

Prediction: Across the last eight games in Ligue 1, only PSG have picked up more points than Lens. The visitors have really stepped up a gear in recent weeks and they can see off a Montpellier side who tend to struggle against the top teams.
