Henrique has returned to Brazil after his four game suspension kicked in. The suspension follows an altercation with Florent Sinama-Pongolle in the Coupe de France.
Marc Planus took a knock to the ankle and missed most of Wednesday's training session, though he could still make the line-up.
Two of France’s in form teams meet at the Stade de la Mosson for what could be a vital clash for both sides in terms of their European ambitions.
Montpellier need to keep their home form up as the season end draws closer. The 2-2 draw at PSG was a superb point but only means something if La Paillade can continue their winning form and extended their unbeaten form to six games.
On the other hand Bordeaux could also make it six games unbeaten and potentially break into the top five if results go their way. Wins over Lille and Lyon make them serious contenders for the fourth Champions League place.
We only have to go back to 2009 for Les Girondins' last win down in the South of France. Laurent Blanc had Brazilian Jussie to thank for the only goal of the game as Bordeaux came away with a 1-0 victory.
