Glasgow travel to France to take on Montpellier in Round 2 of the European Rugby Champions Cup at the Altrad Stadium, Montpellier on Saturday, full of confidence and optimism, after their showing last weekend, when they thumped Premiership side Bath at the Scotstoun by 37-10. The Scottish side have tasted defeat just once this season, in Round 6 of the Guinness PRO12 tournament, when they were beaten at Ravenhill by Ulster, while Saturday's opponents Montpellier, are themselves riding high in their own domestic league.

Currently fourth in the table after nine rounds of matches, the French club have suffered just one defeat on home soil from the five games that they have played at home, and are a typically difficult French side to counter when they are in familiar surroundings. In Round 1, Montpellier travelled to fellow French outfit Toulouse, where they went down to a 30-23 defeat, but thanks to a late late penalty, they managed to emerge with a losing bonus point to their credit.

The two sides have met twice previously in the Champions Cup, with the score currently standing at one win apiece. The Pool looked wide open before it started, and looks likely to remain so come the end of Round 2.
