PSG made a disappointing game in midweek away at Metz. They were comfortably leading 2-0 at half time, but took the foot off the gas and opponents scored twice in the final 10 minutes. Luckily for PSG they found the winner in the dying seconds (won 3-2).
It’s been a while since PSG conceded two goals in a single game. Actually it’s the first time it happens in 2017 (in Ligue 1).
Most probably the situation is very frustrating for them. Since the reconstruction, PSG have never been in the position to be second, to chase someone and hope they will eventually make a wrong step.
Since the schedule got busy, and next week they will also play Coupe de France semifinal against Monaco, coach Emery may make a few changes if PSG take an early lead.
Hosts will miss defender Kurzawa and midfielder Rabiot.
After the win last round against Lorient, Montpellier are now sitting on two consecutive victories. It was a confident performance, and although they scored very early and opponents were extremely pushy, Montpellier managed to keep a clean sheet (won 2-0).
Fullback Congre was suspended, so winger Rousillon started as a left back, giving a chance to attacking players Ikone and Mbenza to be in the lineup in the same time. Both of them are very young and exuberant, and Montpellier can be very dangerous with Boudebouz in the center coordinating the play, and Mbenza and Ikone on the wings.
Fullback Congre is once again suspended.
In the attempt to preserve energy, PSG were very hesitant last week and almost lost important points. Montpellier are in good form and confidence, and have pretty good chances to find the net, especially if PSG will have the same attitude as last round. over 3.75 goals at 1.93
