Montpellier vs Lens team news

​Montpellier

Failing to win any of their last five matches in the league has put Montpellier in a difficult spot as they now find themselves just one point ahead of the first team in the relegation zone. Another worrying thing for them is their home record since Montpellier have only managed to win once at home this season in Ligue 1.

Meanwhile, Lens will have to manage without injured Arnaud Nordin, Issiaga Sylla, Leo Leroy, Jordan Ferri, and Theo Sainte-Luce, along with suspended Boubakar Kouyate.

Predicted LineupLecomte – Sacko, Jullien, Esteve, Omeragic, Davin – Al-Tamari, Savanier, Chotard, Khazri – Adams

Lens

After their poor start of the season and 4 losses in the first 5 games in the league, Lens are now on a nine-game streak without a loss and they've won six of those games. Thanks to this run, Lens have climbed to the 6th place in the standings.

Florian Sotoca will have to serve a suspension in this match, while Ayanda Sishuba, Jimmy Cabot, and Wuilker Farinez are out with injuries.

Predicted LineupSamba – Danso, Medina, Gradit – Frankowski, Abdul Samed, Mendy, Machado – Thomasson – Said, Wahi

Player to watch: Deiver Machado

The experienced Colombian winger has been in solid form this season, scoring three goals for Lens in Ligue 1. With Sotoca out, Machado will have to shoulder even more offensive responsibility in this game.
