France – Ligue 1 | Montpellier VS Nantes; Saturday, 27 April at 03:00 GMT +8

Montpellier has improved their form over the past six games, moving four points clear of the relegation zone and potentially leapfrog 11th-placed Toulose. Meanwhile, Nantes, who finished last season one point clear of the relegation zone, have only two wins from their last seven league games. Antoine Kombouaré’s team has won four of their last five away games and is unbeaten in five of the last six. Montpellier finished their last home game without conceding, but La Paillade has conceded an average of two goals per game in their last six matches at the Stade de la Mosson. Nantes have been weak defensively, with only one clean sheet in their last seven games, but have been in good form in front of goal, scoring in four of their last five games and averaging a goal a game in their last five encounters with La Paillade.

Montpellier manager Michel Der Zakarian has a fully injury-free squad for selection, and La Paillade is likely to use a 3-5-2 system, selecting Benjamin Lecomte, Becir Omeragic, Boubakar Kouyaté, Modibo Sagnan, Enzo Tchato, Jordan Ferri, Joris Chotard, Teji Savanier, Issiaga Sylla, Arnaud Nordin, and Akor Adams.

Nantes boss Antoine Kombouaré faces fitness concerns with Ignatius Ganago, Bastien Meupiyou, and Moses Simon missing. Les Canaris is expected to start with a 4-2-3-1 formation, featuring Alban Lafont, Kelvin Amian, J. Castelletto, Nicolas Pallois, and Samuel Moutoussamy.

Predicted lineups:


Goalkeeper: Benjamin Lecomte
Defenders: Issiaga Sylla, Boubakar Kouyaté, Modibo Sagnan, Silvan Hefti
Midfielders: Arnaud Nordin, Joris Chotard, Bećir Omeragić
Forwards: Akor Adams, Téji Tedy Savanier, Tanguy Coulibaly
