Montpellier vs Paris Saint-Germain
As Montpellier becomes the first away team to oversee the Parc des Princes this season, they will face a team that looks hungry for more glory. The arrival of Christophe Galtier added a new boost to a team that at times seemed rudderless under Mauricio Pochettino. Lionel Messi and Neymar finally broke up and had a good relationship. The South American duo was heavily involved in the win over Claremont Foot and will be sure to continue their purple patch. Coincidentally, Galtier is the last coach to defeat the French giants at home in April 2021. Montpellier finished 13th in Ligue 1 last season and has a leaky defense to boot. If anything, on paper, that makes PSG the worst team they have faced at this point in the season. La Mousonne defeated Troyes on opening day but failed to keep a clean sheet at night.
