Welcome to our Montpellier vs. Nice preview, predictions and head to head analysis of this French Ligue 1 match. Montpellier are in 15 place in the league, well clear of relegation and looking at a mid-table finish to the season. Nice are in 4th place and challenging for Champions League football next season. They need the maximum points from this match to maintain that challenge. They suffered a dip in from over the last 5 weeks, only managing a single victory over bottom club Troyes. Can they rediscover the form that put them this high in the league?
