Promoted into Ligue 1 this season, they played champions Bordeux today and a last minute goal kept them level on points

Table looks like this


1 Bordeaux 25 9 2 1 23 5 7 1 4 18 14 22 52
2 Montpellier 27 10 1 2 18 7 6 2 5 18 20 9 52
3 Lyon 27 8 2 3 21 14 6 6 2 24 14 17 50
4 Lille 27 9 3 2 29 11 5 3 5 21 17 22 48
5 Marseille 25 7 2 2 20 10 7 4 3 26 17 19 48
6 Auxerre 26 9 2 3 17 11 5 4 3 8 10 4 48

Can they achieve the impossible? Has something like this ever been done?

Most entertaining league in Europe this season ftw.

They missed two penalty in the first half and could not beat a ten mens Bordeaux, though. They are a collective team with a great fighting spirit but not much more than that.

imagine a team composed of talented technicians with the same spirit?

Such teams don't exist anymore.

Too much money flying around.

Spahic is half the reason Montpellier is so close to being in championship position. He's a brick wall in defense... and is definately one of the top 3 best centerbacks in Ligue 1 :thumbsup:

Reminds me of Real Sociedad, everyone thought they would clinch La Liga but that didn't happen and I doubt that it will happen this time around. The reason I believe so, is due to the lack of experience and dealing with enormous media pressure and hype week in week out.
