Montpellier preview: Pride remains on the line

Montpellier have nothing materialistic left to pay for this season but that has allowed them to take the shackles off to an extent. La Paillade have not conceded more than a single goal in each of their last four matches, so Monaco will have to be at the very top of their game to win.

Predicted lineup: Bertaud (GK) – Sylla, Omeragic, Sagnan, Jullien, Hefti – Ferri, Chotard, Fayad – Adams, Tamari

Monaco preview: Toughest game left on paper

Monaco were slightly rocked a fortnight ago when they lost to Lyon – another side with nothing to play for – but bounced back last weekend with a 4-1 win against bottom side Clermont. Adi Hutter knows securing Champions League football before the last game of the season will be a monumental achievement.

Predicted lineup: Majecki (GK) – Diatta, Kehrer, Singo, Ouattara – Minamino, Fofana, Camara, Akliouche – Embolo, Ben Yedder

Monaco's Takumi Minamino

Player to watch: Takumi Minamino

Takumi Minamino has become one of the first names on the teamsheet towards the end of the season under Hutter. The Japanese international registered a goal and an assist in Monaco's emphatic 4-1 win over Clermont last time out.

Hitting peak form at the right time

Before this incredible run of form, Minaimo had only scored two goals and got zero assists in 10 Ligue 1 matches. However, he now has three goals and one assist in his last six appearances and played 90 minutes in four of them showing how crucial he is to this exciting Monaco side.
