Monaco will be hoping that their victory over Guingamp on Sunday will be the start of a winning run that will take them up the Ligue 1 table.
Last season's runners-up had only won one of their first five games of the campaign, but beat Guingamp 1-0 at the Stade Louis II to move out of the relegation zone.
A bigger test awaits on Wednesday, though, as they travel to a Montpellier HSC side who have been in good form at home so far this term and have only conceded two goals in their six games.
Jardin may start with an extra midfielder, Nabil Dirar, who scored the winner against Guingamp, as he prepares his side for a trip to one of the most difficult grounds to win at in the French top division.
Lucas Ocampos and Geoffrey Kondogbia are also in line for recalls having been dropped to the bench for the weekend, but Montpellier boss Rolland Courbis may go with the same XI that held Lille on Sunday.
Monaco have gone a remarkable 17 matches against Montpellier without having suffered defeat.
Possible starting lineups
Montpellier: Jourdren; Congre, Hilton, El Kaoutari, Tiene, Deplagne; Mounier, Martin, Sanson, Berigaud, Montano
Monaco: Subasic; Fabinho, Carvalho, Toulalan, Raggi; Ocampos, Moutinho, Kondogbia, Dirar; Berbatov, Kurzawa
Sports Mole says: 1-1
