Mauricio Pochettino has settled in with life at PSG over the past couple of weeks, and he will be hoping that his side will be able to build on their lead at the top of Ligue 1 with a win against Montpellier on Friday night.
Ligue 1 Preview
The PSG players seem to have brought in to the ideas brought to the club by Pochettino, as the capital club have moved to the top of the league table after a decent run of form. PSG are now unbeaten in their last six league matches, and have won four of these fixtures. That run of form has seen them reach the summit on goal difference from Lille, but they will be aware that they will need to continue their run of form to see off their resilient title contenders. PSG come into this Friday night fixtures after back-to-back league wins for the first time under Pochettino, with the most recent of those wins being recorded against Angers. PSG were made to work hard in that game, with the only goal of the match being scored 20 minutes from time by Layvin Kurzawa.
Montpellier could be the perfect opponents for PSG this week, as they haven’t won a single league game in six. Only one other side in the league have failed to win a game in their last six, and they are quickly dropping down the league table. Montpellier were beaten for a fourth time in six league outings last time out by Monaco. They fought hard in that defeat, but eventually went down 3-2. Elye Wahi and Andy Delort scored goals in the defeat, but at that time it looked like both goals were consolations, as they were already trailing 3-0.
PSG vs Montpellier Head To Head
Montpellier have enjoyed some success against PSG in Ligue 1, as they have won two of the previous nine matches between the sides. However, PSG are in red-hot form against Montpellier, as they have won the last three. They won the home game against their opponents on Friday 5-0 last season.
PSG vs Montpellier Prediction
Montpellier’s recent form has been terrible, which means that PSG will win this game pretty comfortably. The league leaders are just hitting their stride, and the over 2.5 goals bet could be a lucrative pick for gamblers for this match.
