Team News

  • Laurent Koscielny was only on the bench in last weekend's match against Angers but should start here.
  • Otavio, suspended against Angers, should slot into midfield here.
  • Youssouf Sabaly remains a doubt following his AFCON participation.
  • Enock Kwateng and Raul Bellanova are both options for Paulo Sousa at right wing-back.
  • New signing Geronimo Rulli is likely to start in goal following Dimitry Bertaud's unconvincing displays.
  • Florent Mollet remains a doubt having missed out on Saturday's loss to Rennes with a thigh injury.
  • Junior Sambia is also a doubt with a hip issue.
  • With so many injuries in midfield, Michel Der Zakarian could again call on youngster Joris Chotard to partner Damien Le Tallec.


  • Both sides involved here showed good initiative in their respective fixtures last week, and will want to have the results to match; look for this to be one of the weekend's more open encounters.
  • That said, it's hard to see Montpellier, with their raft of injuries in midfield, having enough about them to earn a win on the road; look for a narrow home win here.
