Montpellier vs Paris Saint Germain Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Paris Saint Germain will be aiming to extend their 100% perfect start to the new Ligue 1 season when they travel to the Stade de la Mosson to take on Montpellier on Saturday afternoon. Montpellier managed a narrow 0-1 victory on the road at Troyes at the weekend, with Pedro Mendes scoring the winner just after the half-hour mark. Paris Saint Germain, on the flip side, won 2-0 at home over Lyon, with the visitors scoring two own-goals through Marcelo and Jeremy Morel. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Paris Saint Germain are once again priced at odds 1/6 for a victory in Ligue 1, and I think these will be their odds for the rest of the campaign. There is definitely no value in this bet, and I think that backing Montpellier to cover the Asian Handicap +2.5 is a much better betting prediction. Montpellier have won one and lost two of their last three home meetings with PSG, but those two defeats were by just a one-goal margin.

Montpellier Preview

Montpellier have finally returned to winning ways in Ligue 1 at the weekend as they won 0-1 on the road at Troyes. Prior to this triumph, Montpellier have lost three and draw one of their previous four league fixtures. This leaves them only in 12th spot in the standings tied on seven points with Toulouse and Angers, just three points clear of the bottom three. Scoring goals has been Montpellier’s main issue in this early part of the season as they hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with just four goals scored in six rounds. All of their four goals have been scored by different players, although Pedro Mendes has also managed to provide one assist for the team in addition to his winner against Troyes last weekend. At home, Montpellier have endured a mixed run of form over the past seven months, registering four wins, three draws and eight defeats in their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. They were unbeaten in four home games prior to their 0-1 loss at the hands of Nantes in their most recent home league fixtures. In addition, Montpellier managed to beat Paris Saint Germain 3-0 in their most recent home meeting with Les Parisiens.

Giovanni Sio is the only absentee for Montpellier ahead of this clash as he is missing through suspension.

Paris Saint Germain Preview

On the contrary, Paris Saint Germain continued their amazing start to this 2017/18 competitive season at the weekend, as they beat Lyon 2-0 in front of their own fans. This means that Les Parisiens have now picked up victories in each of their last eight competitive games, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Unai Emery’s men looked incredibly strong at both ends of the field in this term as they have scored 28 goals and conceded just four in the process. Edinson Cavani is the team’s topscorer at the moment with seven goals under his belt, while Neymar has helped the team with four goals and four assists in four league appearances. Sandwiched in-between their Ligue 1 triumphs, PSG also managed an excellent 0-5 victory on the road at Celtic in their Champions League group opener last week. Away from home, PSG have won 13 of their last 15 away games across all competitions and are currently on a seven-game winning streak. In addition, Les Parisiens have scored five goals in each of their last two competitive away games. Furthermore, Paris Saint Germain have picked up victories in three of their last four visits to the Stade de la Mosson, keeping two clean sheets in the process.
