Montpellier head over to the Parc des Princes this coming Saturday to face title favourites PSG in a round two match in the Ligue 1.

It didn't take PSG long to book their first win of this brand new Ligue 1 season, as they claimed all three points in the opening round.Montpellier arrive at Parc des Princes with three points to their name after opening the new Ligue 1 campaign with a solid win.

PSG and Montpellier have high hopes for this new season and should be expected to put up a good game as they chase three important points in round two.

PSG scored 36 goals in ten matches, an average of 3.6 goals per game. They conceded nine goals, an average of 0.9 per game and held on for a clean sheet four times.

Montpellier scored nine goals, conceded 23 and kept their opponents from scoring once in ten matches.

PSG vs Montpellier Prediction

PSG are enjoying their football currently with three wins on the bounce, and it began with a 5-0 win against Metz. They went on to beat Nantes by 4-0, before also getting the better of Clermont Foot in a 0-5 victory.In their last six Ligue 1 home matches, PSG have four wins, while they've drawn two and lost none. They scored 18 and conceded five goals.

PSG ran away with the title last season and naturally enter the new campaign as favourites to repeat the feat. A strong start to the season could lay the foundations.

Montpellier only have one paltry win to show from the last six away games in the Ligue 1. In these six matches they drew zero and lost five as well as being outscored by 13 goals to five.

A top half finish is the dream for Montpellier, but neutral spectators have them down for a season in the lower end of the Ligue 1.

We'd be flabbergasted to see PSG waste away a win against Montpellier, who could be in for a battering, the way goals have been flowing lately.
