14th and 15th will meet in Ligue 1 this weekend as Nantes travel to Montpellier with just one point keeping the two adrift in the French top flight with both sides still well in within chance of getting sucked into the relegation zone.
Ahead of the clash, it is Nantes who are above their opposition in this one with the club on 18 points. On the other hand, they have won two fewer games with just three on the board but lose only six compared to Montpellier’s 11.
Nantes have been excellent by their own standards since action returned in France. They drew 0-0 with Troyes before a 1-0 win over Auxerre and a 0-0 draw with Lyon in Ligue 1.
Unlike Montpelleir who lost to Pau, Nantes managd to beat Vire in the French Cup round of 64 last weekend. What’s more, Montpellier lost earlier in January at home to Marseille.
Romain Pitau’s side were also smashed 6-1 by Nice in the league in midweek. What makes this even worse for Montpellier to process is how Nice had previously only scored 16 league goals in 17 games.
