Younes Belhanda, Emanuel Herrera and Remy Cabella get on the scoresheet as French champions Montpellier HSC win at FC Sochaux to record their first win of the Ligue 1 season.

French champions Montpellier HSC have climbed out of the Ligue 1 relegation zone with a deserved win over FC Sochaux at Stade Bonal.

Rene Girard's men opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 16 minutes, with Younes Belhanda converting after he had been fouled by Yaya Banana.

Emanuel Herrera doubled Montpellier's lead with a close-range tap in just before the hour-mark.

Sloan Privat headed home from Sebastien Roudet's floated free kick to give the hosts hope moments later.

However, Remy Cabella sealed his side's first win of the season 12 minutes from time, collecting Benjamin Stambouli's through ball before finishing cooly from an acute angle.

Sochaux remain bottom of the table, having lost their opening four matches.
