ANALYST

PSG are back in action with another Ligue 1 fixture this weekend as they lock horns with Montpellier at the Parc des Princes on Saturday. PSG have an excellent squad at their disposal and will want to win this game.

Montpellier are in 10th place in the Ligue 1 standings at the moment and can pack a punch on their day. The away side was held to a 3-3 draw by Bordeaux earlier this week and will need to present a robust front this weekend.

PSG, on the other hand, have been impressive in Ligue 1 and are at the top of the league standings at the moment. The French giants narrowly edged Metz to a 2-1 victory in their previous game and will need to be more decisive in this fixture.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in May this year and ended in a 2-2 draw. PSG were not at their best on the day and have a point to prove on Saturday.
