Discover the starting lineups before Montpellier-Nice, first match of the 12th day of Ligue 1.
Kick-off the 12th day of Ligue 1 this Friday evening. The Nice leader moves to Montpellier, 13th in the ranking (live commentary, 9 p.m.). A surprise in Francesco Farioli’s eleven with the start of the young (18 year old) striker Badredine Bouanani in place of Gaëtan Laborde, replacement. A big first in the starting 11 for the Algerian international (3 caps), who has only played four matches for a total of 55 minutes so far in 2023-24. Terem Moffi and the indispensable Jérémie Boga will accompany him on the front of the Nice attack, notably with the French international Jean-Clair Todibo and the veteran Dante in defense.
Faced with several absences, due to injury or suspension, Montpellier coach Michel Der Zakarian for his part aligns a central hinge composed of the Omeragic/Estève duo, with Théo Sainte-Luce on the side. It’s clic in the middle and up front, notably with the scorer Akor Adams, silent at the Parc des Princes during his last outing but author of seven goals since the start of the season in the French championship. Teji Savanier will be at the helm for the MHSC, with the captain’s armband.
