Lens, despite their resilience, are hardly making substantial spectacle in the league. The relegation candidates have only picked up one point from their most recent battle, where they battled out against Montpellier in a draw (they also scored a draw in the previous week). The match, in all fairness, was played very well by both sides. Three goals were netted by each team, with Lens’ goals delivered by Valdivia, Guillaume, and Touzghar.

Nice, meanwhile, are trying very hard to rank higher than the mid-table. Their last two appearances in the competition awarded them with four points: three from winning against Caen and one from drawing with St. Etienne. Prior to these, they were winless in six consecutive matches (including one in Coupe de la Ligue). They are currently positioned at number 11.


Football betting tip: Lens and Nice will pull off a stalemate.




Paris Saint-Germain vs. Montpellier

Match Date: 21 December 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Parc des Princes


PSG are struggling to steal away the leadership from Marseille. Currently placed second in the league, the side have had rough performances Iin their last two matches. In Ligue 1, they succumbed to Guingamp in an unexpected and frustrating clean sheet. At the Champions League, they have conceded three goals to Barcelona and only scored one.

Montpellier are very inconsistent when it comes to their form and general performance. The past five weeks of Ligue is evidence to this. At the tournament, they have scored two wins, two draw, and one defeat since their match against Toulouse. They currently rank ninthe in the league table, with 25 points under their belt and 21 goals in their record.


Sports betting tip: PSG will win against Montpellier.
