PSG were without world-record signing Neymar due to a reported foot injury as their 100 per cent start to the Ligue 1 season ended with a 0-0 draw at Stade de la Mosson.
Unai Emery's side dominated possession but managed just one shot on target and Verratti – restored to the starting line-up after serving a three-match ban – insisted the loss of the Brazilian was not behind their failure to triumph.
"We are a great team, even without him. It will just be a matter of turning words into action the next time the situation arises."
"It was a tough game, there was not a lot of space," said Verratti.
"We played at 100 per cent. The concentration is there. We did not let Montpellier have a single shot.
"It got harder to score the longer the time went on. We did have opportunities.
"After six matchdays, it can happen that there is a difficult one. Now we have to think about the Champions League."
