Match preview

Montpellier will be hoping to build on a fantastic result last week against Rodez in a club friendly with them sitting 14th in Ligue 1 ahead of a trip to the Stade du Moustoir where they will meet with Lorient up in fifth.

It’s been another excellent season for Lorient so far, although they did take a bit of a hit in the World Cup break. The club drew 1-1 with Osasuna before a 1-0 loss to Guingamp. Lorient returned to winning ways by beating 15th-placed Nantes in a friendly, which will bode well for them when they meet with 14th-placed Montpellier.

Lorient are two points behind Marseille in fourth, while also sitting three behind Rennes in third and eight behind Lens in second. Ahead of this one, Régis Le Bris’ men have won eight games and lost only three matches.

Montpellier smashed Rodez 5-0 last time out in a friendly, just six days after losing to second-placed Lens. They also managed to draw their last two Ligue 1 games before the World Cup break, while the club sit only one point above the relegation zone.

Montpellier have still managed to win four games, which is the most inside the bottom half of the table. What’s more, they have scored 24 goals but let in 29 and lost the most goals in Ligue 1 (9) after Angers’ 11.
