Match Preview: Paris Saint-Germain vs Montpellier Hérault SC
After their midweek match, PSG have now drawn level with Monaco albeit having played a game more. In their weekend match against mid-table Montpellier, PSG will look to go three points clear at the top of the table and put pressure on the principality side to get a result away at Lyon.
PSG have been in solid, if unremarkable home form this season with 11 wins and 5 draws from 16 games. Montpellier, in contrast, have been relatively dire away from home with 2 wins from 16 attempts.
PSG are in a great run of form currently without a loss in 15 league games. Montpellier on the other hand have won only 2 of their last 7, with survival all but assured for the south coast side and PSG in a dogged title race, an upset seems unlikely.
