This Sunday sees Montpellier go head to head with Auxerre at the Stade de la Mosson – Kick-off 3:00pm GMT.

Auxerre currently sit in eighteenth place as they travel to ninth placed Montpellier.

Montpellier arrive at this fixture, having secured three points so far this season

With Montpellier having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Oliver Dall’Oglio’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Also, Montpellier have a huge task to over-turn their opponents in this game, having already lost one game this season. Their position is ninth in the League and they have three points, that is, 1W, 1L and 0D having won one game and lost one game.

When Montpellier host Auxerre, they will do so on the back of one win on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see Montpellier on 6 points.

It is likely that three key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Oliver Dall’Oglio and his Montpellier team.

Auxerre’s Ligue 1 season, has so far seen them gain one point, going into this game

It was a 2-2 draw against Angers SCO in Auxerre’s last Ligue 1 outing, Jean-Marc Furlan’s men will be hoping for a better result in this fixture.

Also, Auxerre seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with one draws in one game. Now they have 0 matches won, 1 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in eighteenth place, with a total of one point having drawn one game and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Auxerre have lost one game.

A win in this fixture, would take Auxerre’s points from 1 to 4, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring record of three goals. This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Gaetan Charbonnier (1), Julian Jeanvier (1), and Jubal. Auxerre have shown a very poor defensive solidity, having conceded six goals in their previous fixtures.

Going into Sunday’s game, Jean-Marc Furlan without three of his players, due to illness or injury.
