PSG’s main goal for Saturday afternoon is to record their third consecutive win in the Ligue 1. Thomas Tuchel’s troops will host Montpellier (MHSC) at Parc des Princes.
Even though Cavani is nearly leaving the club, Neymar and Mbappe will definitely do their best to make life difficult for the Montpellier’s defenders. Paris Saint-Germain aim to establish a top position in the Ligue 1 standings. Fans hope that they will put all their effort in this Match.
Montpellier, on the other hand, are enjoying a very successful season. La Paillade currently take the 4th position in the standings. Despite this, the Parisians are likely to create a more significant threat for the visitors.
PSG is looking forward to playing against Montpellier after scoring in 52 of their last 54 Ligue 1 home matches (47 Wins, 5 Draws, and 2 Losses). From the previous nine victories, eight witnessed them attaining a shutout. They have averaged 1.0 goals inside the opening 30 minutes across their recent five home league victories.
Five of PSG’s last nine impressive home league wins saw them score precisely four times, but with just one 50/50 split of PSG goals across halves in those five victories. But, despite their dominance in the capital, the Parisians could not manage to win the both halves in 75% of their last L1 home victories.
Montpellier have registered their first away victory of the season in their last L1 road trip. But La Paillade have lost their recent three league visits here by a handicap.
Stat Attack and Players to Watch
PSG: Mauro Icardi scored a double in the 46th-60th minute period of PSG’s last competitive home win. Notably, it was a part of his first-ever Paris SG hat-trick.

PSG have won half of their recent 12 league matches against Montpellier at Parc Des Prince.
During the three of PSG’s last four H2H home league victories, they score their goals 50/50 across halves. On the other hand, Halves have lost the first half by a one-goal margin in five of their last seven L1 away matches.
