Montpellier vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 5th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier will face a tough game on Saturday evening when they take on the champions PSG, but at least they will be at home.
Montpellier come into this match in 5th place and are the best in form side in the league so there is a lot of excitement attached to this match.
The home side have won their last 4 games in a row and last weekend they beat Lorient 1-0. Their last home game finished in a 4-3 win over Strasbourg and overall at home Montpellier have won 4 of their six games to date.
Montpellier has the chance to go 1st with a win although that could change over the course of the weekend but they would go in front of PSG and really open up the league.
PSG have had a few stumbles in the league compared to last season and have not won for their last two matches. Last weekend they had to settle for a surprise draw at home against Bordeaux.
PSG are still in the lead but their points gap has been reduced to just two, and if they drop points here it will be certain that they will lose top place.
Thomas Tuchel’s side may come into this game with a spring in their step though as they beat Manchester United in England in the Champions League in midweek winning that duel 3-1. It was a fantastic result for the side considering they lost at home in the reverse fixture.
Montpellier vs PSG: Head to Head
Last season PSG won this fixture 3-1.
In the last 5 league meetings PSG has scored 19 goals past Montpellier.
Montpellier last beat PSG in 2019 at this stadium with the game ended 3-2 in their favour.
Montpellier vs PSG: Prediction
Montpellier are in really good form, they are at home and could go top of Ligue 1. They will play in attack mode, they will be fearless and we should see a great spectacle because of it.
The problem is that a team who opens themselves up too much to the quality of PSG could really suffer, and PSG got a big win in midweek and we think they will also be up for this game.
PSG are around 1.44 to win the game which just seems a little short with not much value given the form of Montpellier, but we think the Paris side can power through and will take the champions to expose Montpellier’s defence and go for the away win on the handicap.
