If you are keen to back a winner in this match, we'd highly recommend doing so with a Montpellier -2 handicap to at least provide some better odds while still not putting much faith in the home side.

Clermont preview: Hopes are dwindling for Ligue 1's bottom club

With just four wins in Ligue 1 all season, Clermont hold very little belief in staying in the division. If they fail to win their home games, then it will very quickly see an end to their three-year adventure in France's top division, although an away draw against PSG will have boosted confidence.

Montpellier preview: Uptick in form at just the right time

Before the start of March this year, Montpellier had gone on a run of just two wins in 13 Ligue 1 matches, having slipped dangerously close to the drop zone. Now though, they have won three of their last four games and are comfortably midtable.

Predicted lineup: Lecomte (GK) – Mincarelli, Sagnan, Omeragic, Tchato – Chotard, Ferri – Tamari, Savanier, Nordin – Khazri

Montpellier's Teji savanier

Player to watch: Teji Savanier

When Montpellier have needed someone to step up and halt their poor run of form, it's been their captain, Teji Savanier who has pulled them through a number of games. While they were thumped not too long ago against PSG, the fact that Savanier found the back of the net shows the ability and composure he possesses.

Savanier scoring usually means Montpellier win

Savanier has been in fine form at the business end of the season for Montpellier, scoring two goals in the club's last three victories. Three of Savanier's eight league strikes have come away from home, so playing in front of raucous atmospheres doesn't appear to bother him in any way.
