Saint-Etienne achieved third consecutive win in League 1 and at least temporarily replaced Nice from the 4th place in the standings. Roman Amouma was right in the 10th minute and brought the greedy success. Montpellier has only a point from its last 4 games and takes 8th place in the standings.
The hosts were the more active team, but they received an early goal and did not finish returning to the end. Ammuma scored after Remi Cable.
Passes for Montpellier made Giovanni Sio and Rodrigue Ninga.
