Montpellier and Bordeaux Begles return to domestic action in the French Top 14 Orange competition on Saturday at the Altrad Stadium, after disappointing European campaigns, which saw both clubs eliminated at the Pool stages of the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup respectively. Both clubs are challenging for a place in the top six of the league table after 16 rounds of fixtures, those being the all-important play-off positions come the end of the season. Currently in eighth place, Montpellier will look to close the gap on their visitors who have a five point and three place advantage going into Saturday’s match. The home team has one of the least impressive home records in the tournament, but even then they have won six of their eight matches at the Altrad Stadium, such is the preponderance of home victories in the French rugby.

 While Bordeaux have produced some of the most stunning rugby played by any club in the competition this season, they have tended to keep their best form for in their own Stade Chaban-Delmas, where they have tasted defeat only to Toulouse this season.  Away from home, the side from the coast have managed just a solitary victory, their ability to secure bonus points just giving them an edge over some of their rivals for the top six positions.
