Beaten narrowly in Monaco last weekend (1-0), Montpellier continues its second trip in a row on Saturday, towards the Raymond Kopa Stadium in Angers. Sixth in the classification and pointing only four points from the podium, the Héraultais will try to resume their march forward, against an adversary who is no more than the shadow of himself. In addition to the affair of its president, on which we will not return, the SCO is indeed in great difficulty on the sporting level, as demonstrated by its 5 defeats in a row, all competitions combined. Fallen on the lawn of a Nîmes long amorphous in Ligue 1, the Butelle and company no longer seem to have the recipe, they who nevertheless formed one of the best teams in the championship in the first part of the season. In this context so complicated, the arrival of Delort, Laborde and other Savanier could therefore hurt. The MHSC is in search of Europe, and arrives in the West to take 3 new points.
