Montpellier vs. Lyon: Ligue 1 – Match Preview

Lyon will look to extend their excellent start to the Ligue 1 season away at Montpellier on Tuesday evening.

Montpellier have claimed just the one point from their first two matches this season.

Last time out they earned a 1-1 draw away at Bordeaux, with Andy Delort scoring their goal.

Lyon have won both of their matches so far this season, thrashing Angers 6-0 last weekend.

Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay have hit the ground running and both scored twice in the victory.
