Today Match: Paris Saint-Germain and Montpellier Prediction 

Following yet another problem in their mission for additional Ligue 1 splendor, Paris Saint-Germain will certainly intend to get off to a much better start in February when they travel to the Stade de la Mosson for a meeting with Montpellier HSC on Wednesday.

The ruling champs were held to a 1-1 draw by Reims at the weekend break, while their hosts went out 2-0 victors against Auxerre

With the put on hold pair of Elye Wahi and Wahbi Khazri enjoying on from the mischievous step, ex-Arsenal item Stephy Mavididi selected a perfect time to lastly score his first as well as 2nd goals of the Ligue 1 season throughout a beneficial trip to Auxerre.

Mavididi cut inside before firing a rocket into the roof of the internet just after the hour mark, and also the former England young people worldwide doubled his tally with a fragile contribute the 80th min before the bulletproof Benjamin Lecomte kept out a stoppage-time penalty from Birama Toure.

Having ended an unpleasant four-game losing run in all competitions extending back to December, Romain Pitau's side inhabit 14th location in the table and hold a healthy five-point buffer over the four sides in the transfer area, but they are much from assured of their area in the top department.

An early Sports car de France exit to Pau has at the very least enabled La Paillade to concentrate entirely on their Ligue 1 fortunes, however as one of only four groups to have shipped over 40 goals in the department up until now - the others being Troyes, Auxerre as well as Angers - failure to tighten up at the back will lead to danger for Pitau's men.

Montpellier have actually likewise taken simply one factor from their last 5 house games during a woeful duration at the Stade de la Mosson - keeping simply one clean sheet on acquainted territory all period versus Ajaccio - however there is probably no much better time to encounter an injured PSG.

While couple of anticipated Reims' excellent unbeaten run under William Still to proceed at the house of the holders, the 30-year-old destroyed the manuscript to come away from the Parc des Princes with a draw after Les Parisiens were minimized to 10 guys.

Neymar's dance feet permitted the Brazilian to break the deadlock with 51 minutes played, however after midfield lynchpin Marco Verratti saw red prior to the hour mark, Reims dug deep and also located a leveller six minutes into second-half injury time via Collection loanee Folarin Balogun.

Having dropped factors in three of their last four Ligue 1 affairs, PSG are in wholly unfamiliar region at the top of the Ligue 1 standings, yet Christophe Galtier's side still hold a three-point benefit over Lens after the second-placed Sang et Or can likewise just draw 1-1 versus Troyes.

Placing 7 past Pays de Cassel in the Coupe de France would have ostensibly been suitable preparation for the return of Ligue 1, but PSG definitely have a title battle on their hands this period, and they are currently in jeopardy of suffering three successive league beats far from residence for the first time given that March.

Nevertheless, PSG will absolutely take support from their 5-2 thumping of Montpellier back in August, which represented their eighth successive sway La Paillade in all competitions, as well as the champions have actually scored at the very least two times in each of their last 11 conferences with the underdog hosts.

Having actually both seen red in a 3-0 loss to Nantes on January 15, Montpellier demonstrators Wahi and Khazri will certainly serve the secondly of their two-game suspensions on Wednesday, leaving Valere Germain to spearhead the charge with assistance from a resurgent Mavididi.

La Paillade have no fresh concerns to report from their sway Auxerre, and midfielder Jordan Ferri should return after missing that competition with a bout of flu, yet it stays to be seen if Pedro Mendes can recoup from a hamstring problem in time for Wednesday.

Pitau should not disrupt a winning formula either way, implying that former PSG centre-back Mamadou Sakho will likely need to be content with a place on the bench versus his old club.

When it comes to PSG, Verratti will certainly serve his suspension today after seeing red in the draw with Reims, so Galtier may think about introducing Renato Sanches or Danilo Pereira as part of a midfield reshuffle.

Nordi Mukiele and Presnel Kimpembe remain lacking with injury, as well as the pair have been joined on the sidelines by Neymar, who misses out as a result of muscular exhaustion. Nuno Mendes is back after a muscular tissue trouble of his very own however.

Backup goalkeeper Keylor Navas has been named in the team after a deadline-day relocate to Nottingham Forest failed, yet Gianluigi Donnarumma's place in goal has actually not been under threat at all this period.

Montpellier HSC possible starting schedule:
The count; Tchato, Jullien, Esteve, Maouassa; Ferri, Chotard; Nordin, Savanier, Mavididi; German

Paris Saint-Germain possible beginning schedule:
Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Ramos, Bernat; Ruiz, Pereira, Sanches; Messi; Mbappe, Ekitike

We claim: Montpellier HSC 1-2 Paris Saint-Germain
Components with Montpellier have actually usually been a stroll in the park for PSG, however Galtier's side are sustaining the true definition of a sticky patch, and the fervent Paillade faithful will be in a buoyant mood after their team's effective weekend break ventures.

A renewed Mavididi additionally spells danger for a Verratti and Neymar-less PSG, yet Galtier will be requiring an instant reaction from his gamers as well as ought to get one versus a leaking Montpellier side, although it might not be rather.
