Montpellier vs PSG

, KO: 19:45 Mar 17, 2024, Stade de la Mosson
PSG

PSG travel to the Stade de la Mosson for a Ligue 1 class with Montpellier as they continue their march towards the title. Montpellier have been a bit erratic at home in recent weeks and should struggle against the superior quality of the Parisians.

Montpellier head into Sunday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 victory at Nice in their previous Ligue 1 fixture. They took a fortuitous lead after Jean-Clair Todibo put through his own net while Teji Savanier netted the winner.

Michel Der Zakarian’s men have struggled with inconsistency lately, claiming just two wins from their last nine Ligue 1 matches. They are just one point above the bottom three and need a swift upturn in fortunes to avoid getting dragged into the relegation zone.

Montpellier have also found things difficult at the Stade de la Mosson, having picked up just one win from their last 10 matches. They played out a 2-2 draw with Strasbourg in their previous home fixture.

PSG are also coming off a victory over Nice as they triumphed 3-1 in a midweek Coupe de France quarter-final clash. Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring early in the first half while further goals from Fabian Ruiz and Lucas Beraldo sealed the win.

It was a solid return to winning ways for PSG, who have drawn their last three Ligue 1 matches. Their title defence has been slow going but they remain 10 points clear at the top of the standings.

PSG have fared better on their recent travels and have won six of their last seven away matches across all competitions. Luis Enrique’s men have kept clean sheets in three of their last four Ligue 1 away matches.

How the bookies view it

PSG have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 11/20 by 10bet to claim the win. Montpellier are considered outsiders with a home win valued at 5/1 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 15/4 by 10bet.

Head to head

PSG have a 27-14 advantage with 14 draws from 55 previous matches against Montpellier. The Parisians have also won the last five meetings and claimed a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in November.

Players to watch

Kylian Mbappe is the leading scorer in Ligue 1 with 21 goals and will be the one to watch om Sunday. The forward has three goals in his last three matches and is priced at 4/5 bet365 to get on the score sheet.

PSG have been solid at the back lately, jeering clean sheets in three of their last four away matches. Lucas Beraldo has been a rock at the back for the Parisians and can lead them to another clean sheet at 13/8 by William Hill.
