Paris Saint-Germain vs Montpellier preview
Saturday night’s clash is a meeting of the top two scoring sides in the division and backing goals at the Parc des Princes makes plenty of sense.
Even without Messi due to injury, PSG still boast tremendous firepower, yet defensively there remain question marks with Pochettino’s men having conceded in seven of their nine competitive fixtures this term.
Montpellier, for their part, have scored in every game they have played, including away to champions Lille, with their 15 goals this season netted by eight different players.
The visitors have enough about them to at least get on the scoresheet on Saturday, something they have managed in five of their last seven matches in all competitions against PSG.
