Champions up to ninth after home win.
A solitary goal by Emanuel Herrera guided Montpellier to a narrow win over Nancy as they moved up to ninth in Ligue 1.
34′ [1 – 0] E. Herrera
Emanuel Herrera’s first-half goal guided Montpellier to a narrow victory over basement club Nancy, as the Ligue 1 Champions moved up to ninth in Ligue 1.
Herrera headed home after 34 minutes but it was not a dominant performance by Montpellier, with Thomas Mangani hitting the bar for the visitors late in the second half.
While Montpellier are in mid-table, Nancy remain rock-bottom, their mini-revival apparently over after two successive defeats.
