Wednesday’s football game at Stade de la Mosson pits together Montpellier and Olympique Marseille, the two teams who defeated Metz and Clermont respectively in their last league matches. La Paillade did well to put an end to their six-game winless run, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but they face a difficult task against OM. Boubakar Kouyate misses out through suspension, while all Wahbi Khazri, Arnaud Nordin, Theo Sainte-Luce, Leo Leroy, and Issiaga Sylla are out of contention with injuries.

Marseille, on the other hand, are eyeing their fifth consecutive league win, but beating Montpellier at Stade de la Mosson is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards and we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils in the Ligue 1 round 17. Defender Jonathan Clauss is back from suspension, while both Joaquin Correa and Valentin Rongier remain in the recovery room.

Prediction:  1-1
