Two of the most surprising teams in Ligue 1, Montpellier Herault Sc and Lille OSC, battle for the second-highest spot on the French table after finishing 10th and 17th in last season's campaign respectively, according to Sky Sports. The frenzied season of holiday fixtures begins with a mid-week, Round 16 showdown between the second- and fourth-ranked sides who will be competing for the biggest prize available — as long as Paris Saint-Germain continues to outstrip the rest of the league by 14 points — in a match that will live stream from Montpellier, in the south of France.

While Montpellier comes in off a 2-1 win over AS Monaco on Saturday, Lille has taken just two points from their last four matches. A loss coupled with an Olympique Marseilles win on Wednesday over Nantes would drop the unlikely contenders from the top four altogether. Lille took a difficult 2-2 draw with third-ranked Lyon at the weekend, as Ligue1 reported.
"We can be frustrated given we were two goals up, but the game could have gone Lyon's way in the first 15 minutes. We could have gone 3-0 up just before the break and that would surely have changed things," said a regretful Lille Coach Christophe Galtier.
Montpellier features a goal scoring attack that has produced, at +13, the highest goal differential in Ligue 1 outside of PSG's astounding +39. Montpellier is paced by striker Andy Delort, pictured below, with seven.
