Best team in L1 over the last five matches (4 wins and 1 draw), Montpellier, on track to maintain itself, no longer hesitates to look up. If successful against Clermont, the MHSC could even gain two places in the standings, after the defeat of Toulouse (0-2 against Lille). The Héraultais will aim for a fifth clean sheet since the return of Michel Der Zakarian on the bench. But if they found a “better seat” defensively, its players will also have to continue to show efficiency, despite the package of Faitout Maouassa. Hit in the hamstrings on Wednesday in training, the converted winger will be out for about three weeks, which should allow Stephy Mavididi to revive. Absent for a long time, Théo Sainte-Luce is also making a comeback.
A burst of pride for Clermont?
Clermontois side, after the slap received at home against Lens (0-4) Sunday, Pascal Gastien, the coach of Clermont Foot, awaits a burst of pride from his men. “I know we can do it”, he launched. Still deprived of defenders Alidu Seidu and Maximiliano Caufriez, the CF63 will also have to do without Elbasan Rashani (ankle). On the other hand, Mehdi Zeffane and Saîf-Eddine Khaoui are available.
