An expensive match between two teams looking for a rebound. Unable to win one of their last five matches, the Aiglons were expelled from the Ligue 1 podium (the ranking here) last weekend, after their defeat in Toulouse (2-1). They challenge Montpellier this Friday (9 p.m., live commentary), at the opening of the 25th day, with an almost unchanged eleven: Francesco Farioli simply preferred to bet on the former Montpellier Gaëtan Laborde rather than Evann Guessand up front.

With one victory in eight L1 matches, the Héraultais are more in danger than ever. Here they are in a play-off position before facing Nice. Michel Der Zakarian lines up almost the same team as the one which shared the points against Strasbourg (2-2), with two exceptions: Becir Omeragic takes advantage of the suspension of Modibo Sagnan to find a place within the central hinge and Wahbi Khazri is preferred to Akor Adams up front. The Nigerian striker has found the net nine times this season in all competitions. His last goal in the league, however, dates back to… October 29, a double against TFC (3-0). He scored twice against Entente Feignies Aulnoye (N2) at the end of January, in the Coupe de France.
