Montpellier and Paris Saint-Germain will lock horns with each other in Ligue 1 this weekend. The match between Michel Der Zakarian’s side and Luis Enrique’s team will be held at Stade de la Mosson and is scheduled to kick off at 7:45 pm UK time on Sunday.

Montpellier

Montpellier HSC are a well-known and big club in France and are a staple of Ligue 1, but there is a very good chance that they could end up in Ligue 2 at the end of the season. They finished as high as 12th in the Ligue 1 table last season. It is very unlikely that they will finish as high.

Michel Der Zakarian’s side are 13th in the Ligue 1 table at the moment with 26 points from 25 matches, just a point above the bottom three. Montpellier are above Strasbourg, Lorient, Nantes, Metz and Clermont in the league table.

Montpellier will head into the Ligue 1 match against Paris Saint-Germain on the back of a 2-1 victory over Nice away from home in the league. It came after a 2-2 draw with Strasbourg in front of their fans in the league which came after a 4-1 defeat to Marseille on the road.

Team News:

Montpellier are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Benjamin Lecomte will be in goal for the home team. Silvan Hefti, Becir Omeragic, Kiki Kouyate and Issiaga Sylla will be the four defenders. Jordan Ferri and Joris Chotard will be the two holding midfielders. Arnaud Nordin, Teji Savanier and Mousa Al-Tamari will be the three attacking midfielders. Wahbi Khazri will lead the line for Montpellier.

Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain are the biggest club in France and have been dominating Ligue 1 for over a decade now. PSG are the dominant force in Ligue 1 and are always expected to win the league title. They are the clear favourites to get the job done this season.

PSG are at the top of the Ligue 1 table at the moment with 56 points from 25 matches. Luis Enrique’s side are as many as 10 points clear of second-placed Brest. It is hard to see PSG collapse in the final weeks and months of the season.

Luis Enrique’s side will head into the Ligue 1 match against Montpellier this weekend on the back of a 3-1 victory over Nice at home in the league. It came after a 2-2 draw with Reims in front of their fans in Ligue 1 which followed a 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad in the UEFA Champions League.

Team News:

Paris Saint-Germain are likely to line up in a 4-3-3 formation. Gianluigi Donnarumma will be in goal for PSG. Warren Zaïre-Emery, Lucas Hernandez, Lucas Beraldo and Nuno Mendes will be the four defenders. Lee Kang-in, Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz will be the three midfielders. Ousmane Dembele, Goncalo Ramos and Kylian Mbappe will be the three forwards.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Montpellier have won just 6 of their 25 Ligue 1 matches this season.
  • Paris Saint-Germain have drawn their last 3 Ligue 1 games.
  • Paris Saint-Germain have lost just 1 Ligue 1 game this season.
  • Kylian Mbappe has scored 21 goals and given 4 assists in 23 Ligue 1 games for Paris Saint-Germain this campaign.
  • Randal Kolo Muani has scored 6 goals and given 2 assists in 19 Ligue 1 matches for Paris Saint-Germain this season.

Conclusion

Montpellier are in danger of getting relegated to Ligue 2 at the end of the season, and it is hard to see them get anything from the match against Paris Saint-Germain. PSG have the strongest team in France, and they should be able to pick up all three points from the game with ease.
