Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
PSG will look to put icing on the cake on a successful Ligue 1 season when they take on Montpellier in the Ligue 1 round 37. Les Parisiens have drawn each of their last three league fixtures, and, no doubt, they will give 100% to return to winning ways in the national championship on Saturday evening. Both Presnel Kimpembe and Neymar are banned for the match, while all Icardi, Paredes, Draxler, Kurzawa, and Diallo remain in the treatment room.
In Neymar’s absence, all eyes will be on duo Messi – Mbappe. La Paillade, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the visit of PSG. Montpellier collected only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures, and seeing that they have nothing to play for in the season finale, we are tempted to put our money on the newly-promoted champions. The likes of Cabella, Savanier, Ferri, Omlin, and Tamas are injured for the home team.
Highlighted Player (Téji Savanier):
Born in Montpellier on December 22, 1991, Teji Savanier is a French footballer who plays for Nimes in the Ligue 1 as a midfielder. Savanier began his senior career at Arles-Avignon and it has to be noted that he played for the club from 2011 to 2015.
Ahead of the start of the 2015/2016 Ligue 2 campaign, Teji Savanier joined Nimes and he has been playing for the club ever since. The 171-cm tall midfielder has established himself as a first-team regular at Nimes and he successfully plays for the club in the French top flight. Savanier’s main position is central midfield, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Despite producing fine performances for Nimes in all competitions, Teji Savanier has yet to receive a call-up for the French national football team. His contract with Nimes should expire on June 27, 2018.
Highlighted Team (PSG):
Formed by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain in 1970, Paris Saint-Germain or as they call it PSG is the most successful club in French football with 31 domestic titles to their name. Having won six Ligue 1 title so far, a record ten Coupes de France, a record six Coupes de la Ligue, six Trophees des Champions and one Ligue 2 title, PSG are also one of only two French clubs to ever win a European title.
Les Parisiens were crowned UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup champions back in 1995-96, while their last European trophy was the 2001 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Beginning of the new millennium was particularly hard for the celebrated club who flirted with relegation in 2000s before they were bought by the Quatar Sports Investments group in 2011 when the rebirth of the Paris Saint-Germain as we know it today began.
Following heavy squad investments and team boosting, PSG won their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years with Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic almost singlehandedly leading his side towards the trophy with 30 goals. Having established domestic dominance, PSG now set their sights on winning the Champions League which remains an elusive dream for the club from Paris.
