Paris SG vs Montpellier PredictionPSG vs Montpellier Prediction and Preview for Saturday's Ligue 1 fixture. Led by an in-form Neymar, PSG will be looking to further extend their lead at the top of Ligue 1 as they take on SC Montpellier at the Parc des Princes.
Match status: 2019/20 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 22
Kick-off:
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris)

PSG are well on the way to winning their seventh Ligue 1 title in a row. Les Parisiens have overcome a slow start to the season to hold an almost insurmountable ten-point gap over Marseille in second. The champions are currently on a ten-game unbeaten run, and are outright favorites to extend that run with victory in this encounter.

Montpellier, in contrast, have had an up-and-down season, but will be largely satisfied with their position on the standings. La Paillade occupy the fourth and final European slot as they seek a return to continental football. Manager, Michel Der Zakarian will certainly be hoping his side can stay clear of the chasing pack, and clinch a spot in the top four this second half of the season.

PSG vs Montpellier Team News

PSG recorded a routine 2-0 victory away at SC Lille in their last league outing. Star Forward, Neymar continued his impressive streak with a pair of well-taken goals to earn Les Parisiens victory. This victory means PSG have now won four of their last five league matches, and are unbeaten in the last nine.

Les Parisiens title challenge has been spearheaded by their impressive attack, which, led by deadly trio: Neymar, Mbappe and Icardi, has plundered fifty-goals in the league this season. For context, the second highest scoring side in the league, AS Monaco have managed thirty-six strikes.

As legendary manager, Sir Alex Ferguson once declared: ‘Attacks win you games, but defence wins you titles, and that is exactly what is panning out at PSG. Thomas Tuchel’s side have conceded just fourteen goals in the league this season, which is the best record in Ligue 1, and one of the best in Europe.

PSG have been almost infallible playing at home this term, and have won eight of the ten league matches they have played at Parc des Princes this season.

Montpellier won their third league match in a row following a 2-1 victory at home to relegation battlers, Dijon SCO. Goals from Florent Mollet and Andy Delort were enough to secure victory for Montpellier, who had to withstand a late Dijon rally.

Michel Der Zakarian will, no doubt be pleased by his side’s response following a dismal run at the start of December which saw them lose three matches in a row. La Paillade have now won three successive matches, and placed themselves firmly in contention for Champions League qualification.

Montpellier are placed fourth on the league standings, four points behind Rennes in third, and they are only three points ahead of Angers in ninth! They are a decent side in front of goal, and have scored thirty league goals this season, with eight of those coming in their last three sides. However, the goals may be harder to come by this time as they are up against an indomitable PSG defense.

Both PSG and Montpellier are free-scoring sides; hence, we are set for an exciting display of attacking football in a match that could easily go awry for the visitors.

Injured or Suspended Players:

PSG: Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer, Colin Dagba, Edinson Cavani, Layvin Kurzawa.

Montpellier: Pedro Mendes, Nicolas Cozza, Mihailo Ristic.

Paris SG vs Montpellier Predictions

It would take a footballing miracle for Montpellier to come away with even a draw in what is expected to be a routine victory for PSG. Both sides are not shy when it comes to finding the back of the net, but with PSG’s excellent defence, the scoring scales should tip in PSG’s favour.
