The new French Top 14 Orange season may be only two weeks old, but already Montpellier, Last season's Challenge Cup winners, already find themselves under pressure, as they prepare for Sunday's Round 3 fixture at the Stade Chaban Delmas in Bordeaux, when they face Begles. Just one point from a trip to Toulouse and a home game against Clermont Auvergne, has left Montpellier in twelfth position in the early season table. In such a situation, a trip to Bordeaux is far from the easiest assignment, but they will take heart from last season's result at the same venue, when they claimed a 24-22 victory. Although it should be remembered that Bordeaux hit the post twice, once through Pierre Bernard, and also through Baptiste Serin, with what would have been match winning penalties.

Bordeaux began their season with a 15-9 home win against the reigning title holders, Racing 92. Last weekend was something of an anti-climax for Begles, as they were beaten by Toulouse 17-22. They did however, secure a losing bonus point for their efforts. The five points that they have accumulated sit Bordeaux Begles in eighth position after the completion of two rounds of the tournament, three points adrift of top placed Toulouse.

Bordeaux Begles, the best supported club side in Europe, and Montpellier who meet at the Stade Chaban Delmas, in front of what is sure to be the biggest crown of the weekend in the Top 14 Orange tournament, are two of a cluster of eight sides who have won and lost one match in the opening two weeks of the new season. Typical of French club rugby, away wins have made up a very small percentage of results so far this season, with just three away teams recording wins, while there have been 11 home wins during the same period. Bordeaux Begles and Montpellier have slotted into that statistic quite neatly, with both clubs winning at home in Week 1, before being defeated on the road in Week 2.

Perhaps most surprisingly has been Bordeaux’s lack of attacking edge. Probably the most exciting team in last season’s campaign, have managed a mere two tries this season. On the other hand, this week’s opponents, Montpellier, who are often perceived as one of the more pragmatic clubs in the Top 14, have managed to register seven tries, a total that is only bettered by table topping Clermont. A match that looks like it could go either way, is likely to end in yet another home win, although the losers may well pick up a consolation bonus point.

There is the unusual situation at the Stade Chaban Delmas on Sunday of two Top 14 Orange clubs meeting each other, who will both be more than satisfied with the outcome of the first four rounds of this season's tournament. Bordeaux Begles have won two and lost two of their fixtures to date, and find themselves in sixth position in the table. Exceeding even their own expectations for the campaign. However, their two wins have come at home, while they have lost both games that they have played on the road this term. If they want to maintain their relatively lofty position, they will have to learn how to succeed when away from their own stadium. They did produce a fine effort away from home last week, when they traveled to reigning champions Toulon, and were narrowly beaten by 18-13, thanks to Frederic Michalak kicking six penalties for the home side.

Montpellier who suffered the heartbreak of an extra time defeat in the semi-final last season, currently top the table, as they seek to put that huge disappointment behind them. Since losing in Round 1 to Racing Metro, Montpellier have won three matches on the trot, including beating Clermont in their own stadium, and last week posting 43 points against the team that dashed their hopes and dreams last season, Castres.
