The match

Matchday 36 of the French Ligue 1 sees runaway title winners PSG travel to the Stade de la Mosson to take on 13th-place Montpellier. PSG have a 12 point lead over second-place Marseille and have had the title wrapped up for a number of weeks now. Eliminated from all other competitions, the Parisians have been going through the motions to finish out the season which has resulted in the super team drawing their last three matches. Montpellier likewise don’t have much left to play for in the season as they are comfortably clear of relegation yet too far behind to even secure a top half finish. La Paillade has been on an awful run of form to close out the season and have now lost five and drawn two of their last seven matches.

If there is one critique of PSG’s domestic performance this season, it would undoubtedly be their overall away performance. While some deviation in results is to be expected with most teams, a club with the quality that Les Rouge-et-Bleu possesses will likely hoped to have been more consistent on their travels. Their stellar unbeaten home record of 15-3-0 is in stark contrast to their somewhat pedestrian 9-5-4 away record. The main culprit for their away inconsistencies is down to their defensive fragility with the Parisians only holding the sixth best away defensive record with 24 goals conceded and only kept three away clean sheets in their 18 matches. With a lack of meaningful football in the next two games, it's reasonable to expect more lapses in concentration, especially on the defensive end.

Key Statistics

  • PSG has only kept one clean sheet in the last eight matches and has conceded six goals in the last three, all ending in draws.
  • Montpellier have found their scoring touch, netting in three straight matches for a total of five goals after failing to find the net in three straight prior.
  • PSG away matches average 3.39 total goals, the second highest in Ligue 1, while Montpellier home matches average 2.72 total goals.

The bet of our experts

We’re going to back both teams to score and over 2.5 goals as our pick for this one. PSG have looked vulnerable defensively as the season comes to an end and with nothing left to ply for. While the hosts have struggled to put up positive results in recent weeks, they have at least started to find the net with some regularity. Look for PSG to win this match with 2-1 or 3-1 likely outcomes.
