Paris Saint-Germain vs. Montpellier Betting Tips
Montpellier travel to Paris for their Matchday 34 clash at Parc des Princes on Saturday, hoping to build on their two wins earned over the past two weeks (0-2 at Caen and 2-0 over Lorient). However, they come into the match as heavy betting underdogs and it’s obvious PSG will be much more of a challenge for them.
Paris Saint-Germain have been amazing in front of the home fans throughout the season and we’ve seen them bag 11 wins and 5 draws in Ligue 1, with convincing success across competitions as well, and it’s a longshot to assume the visitors can deny them their eighth win in a row this time around. We’ll thus go for Asian Handicap here and PSG to win -1.5 at 2/5 with William Hill
This will be the third outing for PSG in just eight days, as they come on the back of away wins at Angers (0-2) and Metz (2-3) which will surely further boost their confidence ahead of the home clash. Unai Emery’s side have netted a high total of 17 goals in their last five games and this does shape to be another show of power and high-scoring contest in the making.
Over 2.5 goals FT thus looks a very solid bet to get behind as well, as we’ve seen Montpellier regularly concede high numbers of goals on their trips away from home, and it has been rated buying money for old rope at 2/7 with BetVictor
. However, seeing Montpellier also score eight goals in their last five away games and Paris Saint-Germain with some huge defensive errors at Metz, we’ll now stick our necks out for a Yes on Both teams to score which comes at a good-looking 10/11 with the same bookie.
Paris Saint-Germain vs. Montpellier Stats
While the Parisians have much better head-to-head records in recent history, Montpellier have earned two fine results in 2016 as we’ve seen them hold PSG to a goalless draw at this ground in March and deny them any points in front of the home fans in December (3-0). However, with their current spells of form, we expect the home side to take revenge on Saturday.
We’ll thus go for a 3-1 prediction in the correct score market, backing the longshot home win in an exciting clash at 9/1 with bet365
Both teams to score Yes at 10/11 with BetVictor
