Montpellier arrive at this game, having secured 50 points so far this season

Montpellier will be buoyant, following a 2-3 away win against RC Strasburg in their last fixture.

Montpellier have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. They currently stand eighth in the League, with 50 points having won 13 matches, drawn 11 games, and lost 12 fixtures.

Montpellier have won seven fixtures, drawn three matches, and lost eight games of their 18 League matches at home this season.

Montpellier will have secured 53 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Montpellier will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (58). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Gaetan Laborde (15), Andy Delort (14), and Stephy Mavididi (9). Montpellier have shown a poor defensive solidity so far, having conceded 61 goals in their previous games.

Montpellier’s squad has depth, but even so, Michel Der Zakarian is likely to be missing three of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.

Brest arrive at this meeting with 40 points

Oliver Dall’Oglio will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Brest need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded 11 losses in their last 20 meetings. They currently sit in fourteenth place, with a total of 40 points having won 11 matches, drawn seven meetings, and lost 18 games.

It must be a worrying prospect for Brest to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured three wins and three darts to the home team.

A win in this fixture, would take Brest’s points from 40 to 43, so far this season.

Brest’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Oliver Dall’Oglio, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
