Struggling Montpellier take on Monaco at the Stade de la Mosson on Thursday evening. The hosts head into this match bottom of the table, having lost all but one of their opening six games. Even at this early stage of the season, Montpellier find themselves six points adrift in the relegation zone, with their solitary point coming from a goalless stalemate against Troyes in Week 4.
Monaco, too, have been far from impressive this campaign, winning two of their six league outings so far. They head into this contest on the back of consecutive home defeats; however, their away form makes for better reading, having picked up seven points from a possible nine on the road.
