When Clermont Auvergne and Montpellier met each other in Round 6 of this season's Top 14 tournament, they were vying with each other for top spot in the table, and Clermont were defending the competitions last unbeaten record. On Saturday, they meet in Round 14 for the return fixture at Clermont's Parc des Sports Marcel Michelin, with the home side seeking to avenge defeat in the earlier contest, when they were beaten 19-24.

Since that defeat at Montpellier, Clermont have lost three further matches, although they are still sitting second on the table, level on points with the leaders, Racing 92, but having won two games fewer. Montpellier meanwhile have lost four of their last six Top 14 Orange matches, and have slipped to seventh position. If they wish to climb back towards the top of the ladder, they need to shore up a defence that has leaked 27 tries this campaign, the worst of any club in the top seven positions.

The two clubs had different experiencers last weekend in European competition. While Montpellier crushed the previously undefeated Challenge Cup Pool leaders Harlequins at home by 42-9 to secure a quarter-final spot, Clermont Auvergne were suffering a shock home defeat to Bordeaux, which cost them a place in the knockout stages of the Champions Cup.

Clermont Auvergne may have lost their amazing 77 home game winning streak in last seasons Top 14 Orange play-off to Castres, but the Parc des Sports Marcel Michelin has not become any less a daunting place for visiting teams. It is the turns of Montpellier to enter the cauldron on Friday, and attempt to steam the incessant tide that will be thrown at them, as Clermont continue in their attempts to correct the disappointments of the past two seasons.

The near misses in the last two campaigns, which include a losing final and semi final in the Heineken Cup, and defeats in the semi and quarter final of the Top 14 tournament, has led to questions not only about the side's ability to win away from their fortress like home, but also their mental strength when it comes to the big occasions. Montpellier themselves bear their own disappointment and frustration from last season, when they faced Castres in the semi-final of the Top 14, and despite leading with just over 10 minutes remaining, were beaten by drop goal in the 90th minute of an enthralling, if not classic encounter.
