Match Preview

Montpellier enter this Ligue 1 (L1) round hoping to extend their current three-game unbeaten run at home (W2, D1), albeit against a team they’ve beaten just once in the last 17 H2H encounters in L1, returning a record of: W1, D8, L8.
For what it’s worth against PSG, Montpellier have lost at home just three times this L1 campaign (W7, D6, L3), whilst scoring in all but two of their matches. They also seem to thrive on a good ‘team talk’, having scored nearly a third (eight) of their 26 home league goals this season in the 15 minutes immediately following half-time – a league high.
After having lost the Coupe de France final in their last match, PSG travel south knowing that defeat here would mark the club’s first run of three successive away losses in L1 since 2009/10. However, the visitors can take confidence from the fact they have failed to score in only one of their last 32 away fixtures in L1 (W21, D6, L5).
A combination of trends imply a comfortable PSG win to-nil is forthcoming. Most notably, the visitors are the only top-flight side to have scored in each of their L1 road trips this term, but there is also the fact that just two of their last 11 competitive H2H matches with Montpellier have seen both teams score.
Players to watch: Montpellier top scorer Andy Delort has 13 league goals so far, with over half (eight) coming before the break.
The brilliant Kylian Mbappé has contributed to a win to-nil in four of his last five goalscoring away league appearances for PSG.
Stat attack: Montpellier remain the only L1 side yet to concede a home league goal between the 31st-45th minute.
Four of PSG’s last five L1 away wins have produced a goalless first half.
Three-quarters (12) of PSG’s 16 away L1 games have featured over 2.5 goals – the highest ratio in the league.
