Match Preview: Montpelier vs Paris SG- 9pm (BST) 1:30am (IST)

Paris Saint-Germain will endeavor to build on their dramatic Champions League victory over Manchester United when they travel to Montpelier HSC for Saturday’s ligue1 fixture.

However, the champions are hoping to avoid a third game without a win in the top flight and are facing a Montpellier side who have triumphed four times on the bounce in Ligue 1.

Montpellier overcame PSG 3-2 at the Stade de la Mosson in the 2018-19 campaign, but Tuchel’s men enjoyed a 3-1 victory on Montpellier’s turf last season before winning 5-0 at home.

Match preview: Lille vs Monaco - 1pm (BST) 5:30pm (IST)

The pick of the fixtures this weekend in Ligue 1 sees second-placed Lille welcome fourth-placed Monaco to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Sunday lunchtime.

The two powerhouses are only separated in the table by goal difference and, depending on Paris Saint-Germain’s result on Saturday, could rise to the top of the rankings with a win.

Lille ensured that their unbeaten record in the Europa League remained intact with a slender 2-1 victory over Sparta Prague on Thursday evening - a result which has confirmed their place in the round of 32.

Les Dogues trounced Monaco 3-0 in last season’s Coupe de la Ligue, but Les Monegasques have triumphed in seven of their last nine encounters with Lille in all competitions - including a 5-1 thrashing in their most recent meeting.
