The Ligue 1 is back in action this weekend as Montpellier lock horns with Marseille at the La Mosson Stadium on Saturday. Marseille have not been at their best this season and have a point to prove going into this game.

Montpellier are in eighth place in the Ligue 1 standings and have consistently punched above their weight this season. The home side played out a 1-1 draw with Angers last weekend and will need to be at its best in this fixture.

Marseille, on the other hand, have endured a turbulent season so far and are currently in sixth place in the league table. Les Olympiens have turned their fortunes around over the past month, however, and will be confident ahead of this match.

Marseille have a good record against Montpellier and have won 18 matches out of a total of 34 games played between the two teams. Montpellier, on the other hand, have managed only eight victories against Marseille and will need to be at their best in this game.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in January this year and ended in a 3-1 victory for Marseille. Montpellier struggled on the day and will need to play out of their skins in this fixture.
