Nantes – Montpellier preview: Latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Nantes vs Montpellier lineups.

Nantes

Nantes have been an inconsistent team so far and in the first 8 rounds, they recorded better results on the road. The Canaries scored a lot of goals in recent weeks but also conceded many and defensively things have looked very bad. 

Top goalscorer and only reliable forward asset so far Mustafa Mohammed misses this game suspended. This is a major issue, especially considering that two other strikers – Ganago and Zeze – are ruled out due to injuries. 

In further selection issues, influential full-back Centonze and equally impressive inner midfielder Augusto are also sidelined. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Lafont (GK), Duverne, Comert, Castelletto, Merlin, Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Adson, Mollet, Simon & Abline 

Montpellier

Der Zakarian’s men also struggle on the defensive end and they haven’t kept any clean sheets. Montpellier beat Nantes 3-0 back in May though and also 7 of the team’s 9 points up to now have been collected on the road. 

Somehow Montpellier do much better when they can sit deep, soak up pressure and use the flanks to cause problems on counterattack. 

Montpellier have no serious injury issues as such with only 2 backup players ruled out from the coming match. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Lecomte (GK), Sacko, Omeragic, Kouyate, Sakho, Chotard, Ferri, Al-Taamari, Savanier, Khazri & Adams

​Player to Watch: Mousa Tamari

Montpellier's striker Mousa Tamari is enjoying an excellent season so far. In 7 league appearances the Jordanian accumulated 5 goals and 2 assists. 

Tamari is the heartbeat of Montpellier's front line and we expect him to be shining again in the coming match.
