The fourth takes on fifth as AS St-Etienne host Montpellier in a game that could possibly decide the last Europa League place, at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, on Saturday evening (IST).
STE vs MOT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The season is heading to its culmination and there are still places up for grabs. St-Etienne are chasing one of the most coveted places in Ligue 1, that is the Europa League. They are in pole position to achieve that target, currently sitting at fourth with a huge seven points advantage over rivals Montpellier in fifth.
That said, Etienne can even aim higher than the Europa, for Lyon are just one point ahead of them on the table. With Etienne playing earlier this week, a win for here will take them above the Les Gones, i.e. into the Champions League places.
This should get the team going here but the hosts are in good form nonetheless, having won six times in the last seven league games heading into this match.
Montpellier meanwhile could still sneak into top-four. Though erasing a seven points deficit in the last three games is as hard as climbing the Everest. They need a little bit of luck but first win their six-pointer against St-Etienne.
The visitors have the momentum behind them after going unbeaten in the last four games, three of which were the wins.
The Ligue 1 match will be played between AS St-Etienne and Montpellier at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, in Saint-Étienne, France. The ground has a capacity of 41,965.
The game will start at 12:30 AM (IST), on Saturday, May 11.
