Preview: Montpellier vs. Bordeaux

Montpellier can briefly go top of Ligue 1 by defeating Bordeaux at the Stade de la Mosson.

Bordeaux will try to make it four wins in a row when they travel to the Stade de la Mosson to face Montpellier HSC.

Les Girondins' 1-0 victory over Lyon last weekend saw them keep pace with Toulouse following their comfortable 3-0 win over Nancy.

Francis Gillot has seen his team lose only once in their last ten games, and now trail fifth-place Marseille by three points.

However, Montpellier will be motivated by the fact that they can briefly usurp Paris Saint-Germain at the top of Ligue 1 should they win.

Remy Cabella is set to return for La Pallaide following last week's 2-2 draw with the league leaders.
