THE OPPOSITION

Montpellier’s Manager Michel Der Zakarian is preparing his side for a third season in charge of the Club having achieved sixth and 10th place finishes in the last two seasons.

Leading the line for La Paillade is 25-year-old attacker Gaëtan Laborde who enjoyed a fruitful first season reaching double figures across the campaign.

At the heart of the defence is Brazilian captain Vitorino Hilton who turns out consistently for the French Ligue 1 side at the impressive age of 41.

Montpellier qualified for the UEFA Europa League for the first time in their history in the 2009/10 season with a fifth-place finish in the league.

The following season was arguably their most successful winning the Ligue 1 title with now-Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud awarded the League Golden Boot scoring 21 goals and contributing nine assists.
