Paris Saint-Germain is hosting Montpellier to Parc des Princes in round 21 in the French Ligue 1.
Since the arrival of the new head coach, PSG is on a 3-game winning streak, but not everything is sunshine and rainbows apparently. There are a few players in PSG that aren’t agreeing with Pochettino’s ideas, and Mbappe is apparently one of them, which is not good. During their 3-game winning streak, PSG has scored 6 goals while conceding only 1, and their defense is looking better. With 42 points, 44 scored goals, and only 11 conceded goals, PSG is at the top of the table, and they are the best team in France overall. PSG was playing against Angers on the road in their last game, and they were the dominant team with 61% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. It took a long time for PSG to score a goal, but they did it in the 70th minute, and it was enough for a 0-1 win. It seems that PSG is starting to focus more on their defense, but their offense is still one of the best in the world, and when they have to, they will score a goal. There are a few injuries in PSG, but their most important players are ready to play, and they will be at full power for this game.
Montpellier has won only 1 of their last 8 games while losing 5 of those 8. Montpellier is struggling massively, and they are in 11th place with 28 points, 33 scored goals, and a massive 35 conceded goals so far. Montpellier has conceded 14 goals in their last 6 games while scoring 8 goals. In their most recent game, Montpellier was playing against Monaco at home, and they have had 51% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 74% of the correct passes. Montpellier has conceded 2 goals in the first half, and 1 goal in the second half, and by the time they got their game together, it was too late. Montpellier has lost this match 2-3. Delort is the leading goalscorer for PSG with 9 goals, while Laborde added 6 goals and 6 assists. There are no injured for Montpellier at this time, but Ferri is suspended because of the yellow cards. Montpellier has started the season well, but this slump is killing them, and because of that they will not reach the Europa League spot this season.
PSG has been dominant in this matchup, and they are in far better form than Montpellier. PSG is the best team in France, at least the most complete team, and they need to stay in good form because the Champions League is behind the corner. I’m taking PSG and goals at home.
