Montpellier will face Brest on Sunday in Ligue 1.

Brest will host Montpellier at the Stade Francis-Le Ble on Sunday afternoon in the fourth gameweek of the 2022-23 Ligue 1.

The Pirates have had mixed results this season, opening their league campaign with a 3-2 defeat to Lens before a 1-1 draw against Olympique Marseille. They returned to winning ways with a comfortable 3-1 win over ten-man Angers, thanks to a first-half brace from Jeremy Le Douaron and a strike from Achraf Dari after the restart. Brest are seventh in the league table with four points from three games.

Montpellier, meanwhile, have struggled in the league this season despite starting their campaign with a 3-2 win over Troyes. They were beaten 5-2 by defending champions Paris Saint-Germain in their next game before they lost 2-1 against newly promoted Auxerre.

The visitors have picked up just three points from a maximum of nine and sit 13th in the standings. They will look to get their campaign back on track this weekend.
