Start of the 2nd day of Ligue 1 this weekend, but very first match for Montpellier Hérault SC!

Following the semi-final of the Champions League played on August 19 by Olympique Lyonnais, the meeting between the Hérault club and OL was logically postponed, it taking place on the same day as a potential final. Michel der Zakarian’s men will therefore make their debut in this Ligue 1 Uber Eats version 2020-2021 this Saturday, near Roazhon Park, in order to face Stade Rennais.

Eighth at the end of the 28 days played during the truncated last season, the Montpellier are one of those teams who may have felt aggrieved by the end of the championship, given their balance sheet. With 40 points, the MHSC was only 1 point less than Nice, 6th, and Reims, 7th, both Europeans for this 2020-2021 financial year. Conversely, Rennes is one of the big winners from the top of its 3rd place final! In addition, with the final victory of Sevilla FC, a club already qualified for a European competition via its championship, the Breton club is exempt from the preliminary round and will directly join the group stage. A place on the podium to be confirmed for Julien Stéphan’s men, especially against a vengeful OL, an OM who hardly moved and kept André Villas-Boas, a LOSC still present, an AS Monaco who will want to do better and a redeemed and ambitious OGC Nice!

Chance of the calendar, history has wanted Montpellier to meet Stade Rennais for its first match of the season, while it was against these same Bretons that their championship ended last March. Beaten 5-0 that evening, Michel der Zakarian’s men will certainly be keen to take their revenge, but without a background or recent result on which to rely, nothing tells us that they will be able to. At this stage, the Rennes victory seems the most likely, with a good odds of 2.08!
