Après Montpellier - OL (2-1) : Cette imprenable Mosson
On Tuesday evening, OL lost away to Montpellier (2-1) in a reschedule match from the first matchday of league play. In recent years, the Hérault has not really been a place of much success for Les Gones, who have had great difficulty bringing back three points from their trips south.

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.
