Montpellier take on the visitors PSG in the round 37 match of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Saturday, May 14th at Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Montpellier once again failed to get into European competition, but now not with Ter-Zakarian, but with Dall’Oglio. There were chances in the middle of the season, but… Compared to last season, the hosts began to score much less and although Montpellier’s home field helped during the season, the team did not achieve anything significant. And it seems that in the last rounds, having understood the futility of some attempts, if he doesn’t “merge” the season, then they finish it. Defeat from Clermont and Metz as a gift to outsiders. Since February, only one victory over Bordeaux, which closes the Ligue 1 standings. That’s all the achievements of the last rounds.

With all due respect to the team’s next championship title, the team is frankly finishing the season after relegation from the Champions League. Three draws in a row with Lens, Strasbourg and now Troyes, while PSG allowed the opponents to win back in the lead with a difference of two goals and two of them took place on the leader’s field. What’s next? Defeats from Metz and Montpellier will not lead to good things, but they will not become a tragedy for Pochettino either. A strong line-up, variability in attack, the absence of significant problems with the line-up in a duel with the paladins does not really matter. Visitors are finishing the season as best they can and prepare for the next one.
In the last few seasons, the Parisians have had no problems with the Occitans either on their field or on the road, but after the last rounds it is not clear that Pochettino’s squad is trying too hard. Montpellier plays at home and with proper motivation they can offer a battle to the favorite. Of course, PSG will always and everywhere be the favorite of such matches, but this time it can also give points to rivals. I suppose that if the paladins lose, they will try to do it with at least a minimal difference in the score.
