French football legend Laurent Blanc played for Montpellier from 1981-1993 and he scored 76 goals in 24 appearances in the league for the club. Over the years Montpellier have established themselves as a mid-table side in French Ligue 1. Montpellier are considered one of the youngest clubs in France as they were founded in 1974, but it has to be noted that a number of high-profile footballers played for the club in the past. Eric Cantona, Roger Milla, Carlos Valderama and Olivier Giroud played in Montpelliers colors as well, but Pascal Baills is the player with most appearances for the club (429).

As expected, Strasbourg suffered a heavy 5-2 loss to PSG at Parc des Princes in their last league match, but the newcomers should not be looking for points in matches against the title-chasing teams. La Paillade suffered only one loss in previous eight league fixtures, with the team losing to PSG in Paris and that is the main reason why we predict the visitors are going to grab something from Fridays clash against Strasbourg. Montpellier produced a fine performance against Guingamp at the weekend, but they eventually picked up only one point from the match. It is well known that Strasbourg are tough to beat at home, but beating La Paillade, who are eyeing a place in European competitions, is easier said than done. Le Racing are only four points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Fridays football match against Montpellier, meaning that the game is of big importance for the hosts.

La Paillade did remarkably well to win the Ligue 1 trophy in 2012 and that is considered the clubs biggest success. In 1999 Montpellier won the UEFA Intertoto Cup. The team welcome their rivals at Stade de la Mosson and the capacity of the stadium is 32.900. Montpellier won Coupe de France on two occasions (1929, 1990), with the team beating FC Sete and FC Paris respectively in the title games.
