After Montpellier - OL (2-1) : An impregnable Mosson
The 2012 French champion is often considered one of the most difficult sides to face in Ligue 1. Built around the three-man defence preferred by Michel der Zakarian, Montpellier are formidable on the counter and can count on talented players in every part of the pitch. However, it is surprising that a team of the caliber of OL has not won in the league at La Mosson since 2017. Nabil Fékir and Alexandre Lacazette, author of a double, had given victory to their team on that occasion (1-3). Since then, it has hardly been a happy hunting ground.
Apart from a success in the Coupe de France in February 2018 (1-2), Les Gones are now on a run of four unsuccessful trips in Ligue 1 to La Mosson (two draws, two defeats). This is the second longest series for OL in the league behind that of PSG (12 games without a win at the Parc in Ligue 1). Montpellier's consistency at home was further confirmed on Tuesday evening with a win at the expense of the seven-time champions of France who may have found themselves a new bête noire.
