Montpellier are experiencing one of their best starts to a Ligue 1 season in some time and are currently in 4th position. They are 11 points behind PSG but more importantly for them they are just three points behind second place Lille. Their objective this season is too clearly finish in a European spot.
Form is decent with no losses in their last five games but they have already drawn 4 games from their opening 9, just a few of these converted to wins would have easily seen the team in 2nd place. At home they have lost just one game and they have gone their last 4 unbeaten here.

Montpellier vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Here we have the case of two very good teams coming together and we should get an entertaining match. Both have aspirations for European football next season and both at this early stage are willing to take risks to get all three points.
That means that we should see a good match with plenty of chances and goals. None of these teams can focus on the league which PSG will inevitably win so this is the next best thing to bring their A game to this match.
