PSG hosts Montpellier
The champion and current leader in the Ligue 1 PSG hosts Montpellier in a match from the 22th round of the league. That’s a nice opportunity to talk about this game a little bit more in our free football betting tips for the weekend.
For PSG it looks like another season in which they are going to triumph with the title. Right now the champions are leading the Ligue 1 standings with 52 points, being 10 points ahead of the second Olympique Marseille. This is probably the league’s biggest problem at the moment – it’s not competitive enough in order to attract more interest from the fans.
PSG are pretty convincing in their last five games in the Ligue 1 – four wins and one draw. In the previous round Thomas Tuchel’s team visited Lille and beat the Dogs with 2-0 at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Both goals for PSG were scored by the Brazilian super star Neymar.
It’s not a secret that PSG’s main goal remains winning the Champions League for a first time, but it doesn’t mean that the Parisians will give up on winning the Ligue 1, too.
Montpellier are having a very good season so far, because the former champions are 4th in the Ligue 1 standings with 33 points. They are four points behind the third Rennes. If Montpellier manage to qualify again for the Champions League, this would be a great success for them.
Right now Montpellier are in a run of three consecutive wins in the league, achieved over Brest, Amiens SC and Dijon.
In the previous round against Dijon Michel der Zakarian’s boys won with 2-1. Florent Mollet and Andy Delort scored for the winning team.
We consider PSG a huge favourite against Montpellier on Saturday. The champions will try to make another step towards the title and they have a good opportunity for this.
