Posted by

The south-coast side will be looking for a home win to edge closer to Europe.

When: 7.00 pm GMT, 14 March 2015

Where: Stade de la Mosson, Montpellier

Montpellier Herault Sport Club have improved dramatically since their lowly 15th-place finish last term and with over ten games to go, have already matched their points total for the 2013-14 campaign.

Coach Rolland Courbois will be looking to cement their return to the top half with Europa League qualification and, four points of fifth-place Saint-Etienne with a game in hand, this would seem feasible.

However, after being pasted by Olympique Lyonnais last weekend-losing 5-1-the side must demonstrate they have the mental fortitude to return to winning ways.

Jamel Saihi returns to the side, while Daniel Congre ought to be fit as well having recovered from an injury suffered last weekend.

Stade de Reims secured a comfortable 3-1 triumph over Nantes last weekend, and represent confident, talented opposition who are themselves looking to move into the top half.
