Montpellier will be aiming to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Strasbourg when they take on Troyes in a postponed Ligue 1 fixture. La Paillade are a real force to be reckoned with at home, with the team eyeing their seventh home triumph of the process. Ambroise Oyongo is currently at the Africa Cup of Nations, while all Maxime Esteve, Thibault Tamas, and Pedro Mendes should miss out with injuries.
Les Bleus, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team collecting only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures. Since Troyes failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Lyon, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. All Balde, Kabore, Kouame, and Touzghar are on international duty, while all Sandler, Azamoum, Metinho, Kone, and Suk should miss out with injuries for the visiting side
