Liqui Moly StarLigue program: Montpellier HB – Dunkerque HGL the poster for the 12th day
The Montpellierans in full confidence
With only one defeat on the clock in all competitions since the start of the season, Montpellier HB are not giving up. Patrice Canayer’s players have had a string of good performances with recent successes for Chambéry and Pays d’Aix, which have allowed them to stay in touch with PSH at the top of the Liqui Moly Starligue.
However, it will be necessary to be wary this Friday of a Dunkirk team on a good dynamic. 6th in the standings and remaining on 3 consecutive victories in the league, the Dunkirks have recovered, in particular thanks to their house gunner, Théo Avelange-Demouge (67 goals this season), who has also just signed in Nantes for the season next. Without pressure in the Hérault, the Northerners have a good shot to play
The key player of the match: Hugo Descat
No doubt, Hugo Descat has entered his season well. After starting on tiptoe, the French international is gaining momentum in the image of his last performances, each more convincing than the other (8.75 goals in the last 4 meetings at 76% success rate). Enough to keep Montpellier HB at the top of the Liqui Moly Starligue and keep up with the pace imposed by PSG. Against Dunkirk, he will be the number one asset of the Héraultais.
This game Montpellier HB – Dunkerque HGL will be broadcast live this Friday, December 2 at 8:00 p.m. on beIN Sports 3 !

The other matches on the program for the 12th day of Liqui Moly StarLigue
HBC Nantes – Selestat Alsace
Beaten last week in the final moments in Toulouse (31-32), HBC Nantes (3th) lost the lead in the French championship. After receiving the Danes from Aalborg in the Champions League on Thursday evening, the Nantes should be able to manage with the reception of the red lantern of Liqui Moly Starligue, Sélestat Alsace. A good way to regain victory!
US Ivry – Paris SG
Just like Nantes, PSG, which will have had its Champions League match in the legs during the week (success in Denmark on Wednesday evening). The co-leader of the league will make the very very long trip to US Ivry (14th) for a derby that Parisians will have to take seriously. Elohim Prandi and his partners will want to approach this meeting in the best possible way before traveling to Porto in the middle of next week.
