Montpellier | LDLLDL 📉
Montpellier won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-1 Ligue 1 defeat last time out to Clermont Foot.
In that match, Montpellier had 50% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 2 on target. The scorer for Montpellier was Joris Chotard (33'). At the other end, Clermont Foot had 12 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Elbasan Rashani (4') and Mohamed Bayo (69') scored for Clermont Foot.
It has been seldom in recent times that Montpellier have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Montpellier have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 13 goals during that time. However, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend might persist in this upcoming game or not.
Looking at their past form shows that Montpellier:
haven't won against Paris Saint-Germain in their last 5 league games.
are undefeated in their last 2 home league matches.
are without a win at home for the past 6 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Paris Saint-Germain | WWWDDD 📈
Last time out, PSG drew 2-2 in the Ligue 1 tie with ESTAC.
In that match, Paris Saint-Germain had 64% possession and 17 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. For Paris Saint-Germain, the goals were scored by Marquinhos (6') and Neymar Jr (25'). ESTAC had 9 shots on goal with 3 on target. Ike Ugbo (30') and Florian Tardieu (49') scored for ESTAC.
Paris Saint-Germain have been effective going forward of late, scoring 17 goals in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Mauricio Pochettino will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Paris Saint-Germain can also improve defensively after being scored against in 5 of those same games.
Pre-game facts show that Paris Saint-Germain:
have not been beaten by Montpellier in away games against them for the last 2 league matches.
are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
