Montpellier at home against Bordeaux – Wednesday – 7:00pm GMT – The Stade de la Mosson.

It’s a clash of eighth vs seventeenth, as Montpellier host Bordeaux at the Stade de la Mosson.

Montpellier have so far accrued eight points in this season of the Ligue 1

It was a 1-1 draw against Troyes in Montpellier’s last Ligue 1 outing, Oliver Dall’Oglio’s men will be hoping for a better result in this fixture.

With one draws in one game, Montpellier need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. They currently stand eighth in the League, with eight points having won two matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost two games.

Montpellier have won two matches and lost one game of their three League matches at home this season.

Montpellier will have 11 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good Attacking Performance

Montpellier will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (12). Their stand out attacking players have been Stephy Mavididi (2), Teji Savanier (2), and Valere Germain (1). Montpellier have shown a poor consistency in defence so far, having conceded 10 goals in their previous fixtures.

Montpellier are missing five players through injury or illness. This will affect Oliver Dall’Oglio’s selection choices significantly.

Bordeaux arrive at this meeting, having secured five points so far this season

Bordeaux will hope to increase their wins in a row, having secured a 1-2 victory over Saint-Étienne in their last fixture.

Vladimir Petkovic knows that a run of two losses in three fixtures for his Bordeaux side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. They currently sit in seventeenth place, with a total of five points having won one game, drawn two matches, and lost three games.

Bordeaux have won one game, drawn one game, and lost one game of their three League matches playing away this season.

Winning this fixture will see Bordeaux on 8 points.

Injury and illness have depleted Vladimir Petkovic’s Bordeaux and they will likely be missing five key personnel for Wednesday’s match.
