Ryan Wilson can be at the heart of Glasgow charge

Montpellier have conceded thee tries to back-rowers

Ryan Wilson scores a try against Leicester Tigers

Champions Cup Pool Three
Sky Sports Action 7.45pm Friday

Glasgow and Montpellier have both lost their two Champions Cup Pool Three matches so far.

However, the teamsheets suggest that head coaches Dave Rennie and Vern Cotter have not thrown in the towel as far as reaching the quarter-finals is concerned and an excellent contest is likely at Scotstoun.

Hosts Glasgow are going great guns in Pro14 Conference A, winning all ten games and gaining the four-try bonus point on eight occasions. Visitors Montpellier are second in France's Top 14.

The fact that Montpellier have lost their last two away games to La Rochelle and Racing probably accounts for a handicap start as big as seven points.

Supreme wingers Nedani Nadolo and Tommy Seymour are clear anytime tryscorer candidates but, with a forecast for snow flurries and gusting winds, the 7-1 available about Glasgow flanker Ryan Wilson crossing the whitewash looks big value.

Montpellier have conceded three tries to back-rowers in their Champions Cup defeats to Exeter and Leinster and while Glasgow love to play expansive rugby, they are never afraid to go back-to-basics and employ a rolling maul close to the line. Wilson barged over against Leicester and Saracens in last season's competition.

In the Challenge Cup, Pau are asked to give up seven points to hosts Agen as they bid to make it three wins out of three in Pool Three while Russian visitors Krasny Yar and Enisei-STM get respective starts of 39 and 28 points at Stade Francais and Dragons. 

Recent European meetings - 2014-15: Montpellier 13 Glasgow 15, Glasgow 21 Montpellier 10; 2011-12: Glasgow 20 Montpellier 15, Montpellier 13 Glasgow 13.
