Montpellier were absolutely trounced by United Rugby Championship leaders Leinster last weekend 89-7 in a performance reminiscent of their huge 42-6 defeat at Exeter Chiefs last month. An awarded win via covid-19 is their only positive to date but they could end up crashing out of the Champions Cup if they do not find a performance like what they have been achieving in the Top 14. Travelling Exeter come off a big win at home to Glasgow last Saturday but, other than the customary victory over rock-bottom Premiership side Bath, they have lost each of their away matches since October. Taking the visitors to win outright seems a reasonable move here but the +2 would be a peace of mind.
