PSG vs Montpellier Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for PSG vs Montpellier Predictions
PSG are top of the league, which isn’t a surprise. However, the perennial French champions have a slender lead. They have 42 points from 20 games, the same tally as second-placed Lille. It is only a superior goal difference that keeps PSG on top. Lyon is not too much further point in third, trailing the pacesetters by two points. PSG will be without new boss Mauricio Pochettino for this trip due to the Argentinian coach’s Covid-19 diagnosis. A 1-0 win at Angers in his absence suggests that PSG will be fine without him. That victory was their seventh match unbeaten in all competitions, five of which have been wins. PSG are strong at home, winning their last four games at the Parc des Princes. Of the previous 38 league games PSG played there, 31 have gone in favor of the capital club. PSG have won their last four home games against Montpellier. Leandro Paredes is a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he’s doing, he’s strong, and it’s not easy to take the ball away from him. Moise Kean finally shows his proper form and scores important goals. He creates a lot of problems for the opposing defenders. Kyllian Mbape is a world-class player, has incredible speed, and makes a difference on the pit.
Meanwhile, Montpellier has had an average campaign, traveling to this game from the relative banality of 11th place; they are eight points off a European place and 13 points clear of the relegation zone. However, recent form suggests that their average Ligue 1 existence could soon be under threat unless they begin to win games. A 3-2 defeat at home to Monaco last weekend extended their run of games without a win to six, four of which were defeats. This form makes a trip to PSG daunting, but the visitors have only lost two of their nine prior away games. Joris Chotard found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Andy Delort is a great striker, he has the experience and is expected to score as many goals as possible this season.
PSG is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at half time.
The prediction for this match is over 3.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
