It was as much to do with Benjamin's two tries as Ryan Lamb's last gasp drop goal that robbed the French side of a bonus point that severely dented Fabien Galthie's side's hopes of reaching the last eight. Two successive defeats have left them eight points adrift of Ulster and six behind the Tigers.
It means Montpellier will have to throw the kitchen sink at the English champions if they are to stay in the hunt. In their favour is the fact the Tigers haven't won on French soil since they beat Bourgoin in 2006 - eight games go.
"There is a lot for us to improve on. It was a pretty exciting game last weekend and that drop goal from Ryan Lamb stopped them from getting a bonus point," said Benjamin.
"It was frustrating as well because we let them in for a few tries and they could have won the game. We expected them to kick a lot more.
"Hopefully, we can show what we can do in the back line again next weekend. I had got a lot of stick for not scoring. I was relieved to have got a first try at Welford Road last weekend and it would be great to get a few more."
Niall Morris comes into the back line to partner Benjamin on the wing, while England No 8 Thomas Waldrom returns to the back row. While Tigers have made only two changes to their team from last weekend, Galthie has made 14 changes to his starting line-up for the return fixture.
Only Georgian international Mamuka Gorgodze, one of Montpellier's try scorers at Welford Road, remains in the starting XV. He will lead the side.
"I thought it was a good performance last weekend, with some good tries and a great attitude to play throughout the team. Montpellier also showed just dangerous they can be and there are certainly parts of the game we can improve on," said Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill.
