THE PREDICTION

This is an almost immediate rematch for Montpellier and Lyon after the latter won an exciting 24-20 tussle at home on the 6th of January. Neither side has been in great shape recently with both falling foul of an in-form Castres outfit but Montpellier are in especially poor form having managed to lose four Top 14 matches already this calendar year. In fact, the hosts are on a five-match losing streak that sees them second-from-bottom of the standings, propped up only by hopeless Agen, and with just one game in-hand now. Whilst Lyon’s form has been terrible too, the only team they have beaten in recent weeks is their opponents here and they should be able to navigate through what could be a rather tight, tetchy match to do the double here.
