Live in-play betting – 

12th placed Montpellier face their biggest test this season when they host PSG.

They have started their season in a very inconsistent manner with 2 wins and a draw from their last 6 matches.

The former French champions sold their top attacker Steve Mounie to Huddersfield and they have struggled for goals since.

They have one of the smallest squads in the league which also has very limited quality.

They will be glad to finish inside the top ten this season but they seem powerless to stop this rampaging PSG attack.

Despite trouble brewing between Neymar and Cavani, PSG are still favourites to win the French Ligue 1 this season.

They are currently in top form both in Europe and the local league as they have gone 3 points clear at the top of the league table.

The trio of Kylian Mbappe, Edison Cavani, and Neymar have been lethal and they helped PSG win their last two competitive games by scoring 7 goals and conceding none.

This game offers them another chance to do the damage that they have been signed to do and we think they will deliver in similar fashion here again.

Bookmakers make PSG extremely short priced favourites to win this game away from home (1.16) Montpellier are currently trading at odds of (17.0) to get the job done at home.
