TOPS/FLOPS – Montpellier was able to count on Arnaud Nordin and Joris Chotard to win 3-0 in Nantes against a feverish team like Ludovic Blas.
Simple and effective Nordin
By far the most dangerous, Nordin put the Nantes rearguard in great difficulty with numerous calls behind their backs and quick sequences. Scorer just before the break, his achievement was refused for an illegal position. But as soon as he returned from the locker room, he did himself justice by scoring his 8 solo this time.e goal of the season in Ligue 1. The former Saint-Etienne is having a good season and laid down the law at La Beaujoire this Saturday afternoon.
Chotard medium to do everything
We don’t talk much about this season about the Montpellier recovery midfielder. However, he did not only recover important balls on the Beaujoire lawn. A veritable metronome, he never stopped running and covering the spaces to relaunch his partners, which he often knew how to find with two ists on the counter, on the second then the third goal.

The Hérault buffet
For several weeks, the MHSC has not stopped scoring, especially on the outside. It’s an all-you-can-eat buffet of goals offered by Michel Der Zakarian’s players with three more goals this Saturday afternoon. After 4 goals at Louis II against Monaco a month ago and 4 more at Lyon a week later, Montpellier can boast of having scored 11 goals in their last three games away from La Mosson.
Nantes excitement again and again
We have the impression of repeating ourselves and seeing the same things again week after week with FC Nantes. Well back in the game, the Canaries were unable to realize their opportunities as usual before being surprised. In Ligue 1 lately, the residents of Beaujoire have not been able to open the scoring but above all to be realistic. Result of the races against a Montpellier team which showed total realism, it was a new defeat on the 15the of the season, the 6e home. Nantes has still not won in Ligue 1 since February 12, against Lorient (2-1).

Blas on the kneecaps
The master of the FCN has been marking time for several weeks and his performance of the day confirms it. Even if he started his meeting well, he gradually faded away, losing all impact for his team. We felt tired and for good reason it was 51e Canaries match this season between Ligue 1, the Coupe de France and the Europa League. His match ended with a yellow card for a dangerous and uncontrolled tackle like his score, on Maoua (77th) before going out a few seconds later.
