Little by little, AS Monaco goes up in the classification after having totally missed its first part of the season, which cost (again) its head to Leonardo Jardim, replaced on the bench by Robert Moreno. Since the arrival of the Spaniard, the Monegasques have alternated the good and the less good. Defeated 3 times by Strasbourg (1-3), Saint-Etienne in the Coupe de France (0-1) and Nîmes (3-1), the players of the Principality corrected the shot by winning against Angers (1- 0) then Amiens last week (1-2). Also, they climbed to 7th place in the ranking 6 lengths from the podium.
For its part, Montpellier has every reason to be ambitious for this year-end since it is in 5th place in the ranking, only 4 units from the podium. After experiencing some poor performances, especially against Belfort in the Coupe de France (0-0, 5-4 TAB) and PSG (5-0), the Héraultais could not overcome Metz (5- 0) but they returned to success on Sunday by winning in front of Saint-Etienne (1-0).
