Angers x Montpellier
- Angers have been unfortunate since the turn of the year in Ligue 1 - having lost five of their seven league fixtures in 2016 - and must promptly find a way to stop the bleeding as they are now slowly dropping toward the bottom half of the table.
- Montpellier, meanwhile, are still in a problematic position in the league but nonetheless managed to escape the relegation zone thanks to their 2-0 home win over relegation rivals Toulouse last time around, their second in four matches under Frédéric Hantz.
- The hosts have exceeded expectations thus far and currently sit well clear of the relegation zone - 8 points ahead of Montpellier - before Saturday's fixture, but failing to at least maintain a similar gap between the two this weekend could become more problematic in the near future.
