PSG vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday 22nd January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
In the space of a week PSG have climbed back to the top of the table and won the Super Cup over rivals Marseille. This hasn’t been a bad start for new coach Mauricio Pochettino.
PSG will be the odds on favourites to continue the good times in Paris when these two clubs meet on Friday evening. PSG lead Lille in the league but only on goal difference and any slip ups could let in both Lille and Lyon.
The champions have won back to back games coming into this one and they have gone the last 5 weeks without defeat as they try to put some games together and create a gap.
Montpellier are in 11th place and are going through a poor patch of form with no wins in their last five. The visitors have only earned 2 points from their last 15 available and away from home they have gone their last 2 games without a win.
Montpellier’s last away game ended in a 3-1 loss against Marseille and last weekend they were defeated 3-2 by Monaco. A surprise win over PSG would see the club move back into the top 10 though.
PSG vs Montpellier: Head to Head
- PSG won this fixture last season 5-0.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture PSG won 3-1.
- From the last six meetings PSG have won 5 of them.
- Montpellier haven’t beaten PSG in Paris in the league since 2010.
PSG vs Montpellier: Prediction
PSG have a great record against Montpellier and as expected they are big odds on to win this game, and there isn’t any value in backing them even though we believe they will win.
Presently Pochettino has a group of players that are happy, he has a lot of egos to control and at times this won’t be an easy job. But for now the club are focused, they are back on top of the league and their mission before the Champions League restarts next month is to try and create a gap at the top.
We expect a dominant display from the home side, a good game and a comfortable victory.
