Ligue 1 champions PSG will be looking to maintain their explosive start to the new French season when they welcome Montpellier to the Parc des Princes on Saturday evening. 

Under new boss Christophe Galtier, PSG have started the season in some style with a 4:0 win against Nantes in the French Super Cup backed up by a 5:0 thrashing on the road at Clermont Foot in their opening Ligue 1 fixture of the new campaign.

PSG vs Montpellier Betting Tips: PSG and over 2.5 match goals

At the Parc des Princes, PSG have been dominant over the past year having now gone 22 league matches without defeat. PSG claimed 19 wins during that period, scoring 58 goals and conceding just 13.

Indeed, they should be expected to maintain that kind of form here, with Montpellier struggling badly for form towards the end of last season with no wins in their final 9 fixtures.

The visitors did pick up a much-needed 3:2 win against Troyes on the opening day of the campaign last weekend however they have lost 8 of their last 10 away Ligue 1 matches, including each of the last 5. They also conceded at least 2 goals in all 8 defeats.

PSG have certainly dominated this fixture in recent years having picked up 8 wins with just 1 defeat in their last 9 Ligue 1 meetings since the start of 2018. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 7 of those wins, and a similar outcome has to be expected here with PSG in such strong goal-scoring form in their opening fixtures.

Indeed, of their last 6 meetings, PSG won 5 with at least 3 goals scored in 4 of those 5 victories and considering their poor away form at the end of last season, a comfortable home win with over 2.5 match goals has to be expected here.
