At the start of Ligue 1 Matchday 26, Stade Rennes won 4-2 on the Montpellier Hérault turf after a game full of unexpected twists and turns. Also, and above all, the two teams fought a rhythmic battle full of opportunity and tension on the grounds of Montpellier Herault SC, from which Stade Rennais FC finally emerged victorious (4-2) after a somewhat crazy match. In the 2011-12 season, the Montpellier men’s football team won their first Ligue 1 title, finishing the season with 82 points, three points clear of second-placed Paris Saint-Germain.
Together with Marseille, Rennes and Nice, the Montpellier men’s football team is one of the few teams that played in the inaugural 1932–1933 season and still play in Ligue 1. After a brief return to Division 3, also called the National championship since 2001. by 2004 the Montpellier men’s football team had returned to play in Ligue 2. After a slow rise through the league system with coaches such as Robert Nouzaret, Kader Firoud and Jacques Bonnet, Montpellier returned to Ligue 1 under Michel Mézy in 1987-88 season. The men’s soccer team was founded under the name Stade Olympique Montpellirain (SOM) and played under that name for most of its existence.
Montpellier is currently 11th and Rennais is 4th. Stade Rennais has a PPV of 0.35 and Montpellier Herault SC has a PPV of 0.2. Yes, because Montpellier Herault SC and Stade Rennais FC want to be in Europe at the end of the season.
This game saw how good Rennes are; they gracefully controlled the ball and made the correct passes at the right time. Rennes are now playing for a spot in the UEFA Champions League as the first three teams from the Ligue 1 will qualify for the tournament. They are three points behind the third-placed Nice and four points behind the second-placed team Marseille. The race for the top spot is pretty much out of reach because PSG is marching towards the Ligue 1 title with ease. They have a lead of 15 points at the top.
Rennes has an excellent chance to finish in the top three if they continue their current form. Rennes has won three of their last five matches and can also win the next two league matches as they will go head to head against Anger and Lyon (both the teams are placed below Rennes). Rennes also has its Europa Conference League Round of 16 matches lined up against the English side Leicester City. The upcoming phase of the season is pretty difficult for teams that have a lot to achieve with many things going on simultaneously.
