Having lost to Lyon in their previous Ligue 1 game, Al Hain-Cole expects Les Parisiens to suffer more frustration against Der Zakarians's side

Paris Saint-Germain will be aiming to get their Ligue 1 campaign back on track when Montpellier visit the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

Defeat at Lyon last weekend was a second in seven league games for Les Parisiens, who had lost just once in their previous 37.

Match Odds

Nevertheless, they are clear 1/7 (1.14) favourites with dabblebet to return to winning ways straight away in this one.

However, Michel Der Zakarian’s men have lost just one of their last 15 fixtures in all competitions, and are available at 18/1 (19.00) to pull off a shock victory in the capital.

The sides shared a 0-0 draw when they met at the Stade de la Mosson in September’s reverse encounter, and you can get odds of 15/2 (8.50) on them cancelling each other out once again here.

Team News

Both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe missed Wednesday’s Coupe de France game against Guingamp, although both could be in line for a return here.

PSG loanee Jonathan Ikone may not be fit to face his parent club after missing the 4-3 cup win over Lorient, while Facundo Piriz is also struggling with injury.

Montpellier strong in defence

Although unlikely to consign Unai Emery’s team to a second successive league defeat, the guests can probably be counted upon to at least put up some stern resistance.

Unbeaten in 11 away games, Der Zakarian’s team has proved so tough to beat thanks to a defence that has conceded just 15 goals in 22 league fixtures – the best record in the league.

What’s more, their recent record against the current leaders reads two draws and just one defeat in the last four encounters.

Tips and Predictions

All in all, odds of 3/4 (1.75) are well worth backing on Montpellier ensuring no more than three goals are scored for the ninth consecutive encounter between the sides.
