Team News

  • Montpellier will again be without Remy Cabella due to a thigh problem, while Souleymane Camara is still out with an ankle injury.
  • Jamel Saihi and Karim Ait-Fana are both out with knee injuries, Joris Marveaux has a thigh injury, and Garry Bocaly has a hip complaint.
  • Cyril Jeunechamp has been banned for a year and will not play till next season.
  • Rennes will again be without Vincent Pajot and John Mensah due to thigh injuries.
  • Herita Ilunga is a doubt after missing the game with Sochaux due to a similar problem, Victor Montano is out with an ankle injury, and Romain Alessandrini is unavailable for the rest of the season with a knee ligament injury.

Prediction

  • Two teams fighting it out for a place in Europe meet at the Stade de la Mosson when Montpellier take on Rennes.
  • La Palliade are just five points shy of the Champions League places after a run of four wins in their last five games. They face a Rennes side that have won just two of their last six and slipped to a disappointing home draw with Sochaux last weekend.
  • Younes Belhanda hit the target for Montpellier in their win at Evian, and despite injuries to the likes of Remy Cabella and Souleymane Camara, Rene Girard's side look to have the confidence to continue their fine form.
  • Expect the hosts to maintain their charge for the top four against a team that looks to be fading away after a thoroughly impressive campaign.
