Montpellier vs Paris Saint-Germain Preview: Team news, stats and prediction

Montpellier will be looking to avoid a fourth straight home defeat when they host Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.

La Paillade are currently 17th in the table, just one point above the relegation zone. They have won just one of their last 10 home games in all competitions, and they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last 12 league meetings with PSG.

PSG, meanwhile, are in a much better position. They are 10 points clear at the top of the table, and they have won their last six away games in all competitions.

The Parisians will be without Kylian Mbappe, who is suspended, but they still have plenty of firepower in attack, with Lionel Messi and Neymar both available.

Montpellier will need to be at their very best if they are to get anything from this game. They will need to be solid defensively, and they will need to take their chances when they come.

PSG will be the favorites, but Montpellier have shown that they can be a dangerous side on their day. If they can get an early goal, they could make things interesting.
