THE SACKO CCS!!
This time, Montpellier cracks after a lost ball in their penalty area! Mbappé took the opportunity to cross (shoot?), and Sacko diverted the ball into his goal! 1 to 0 for PSG!
Messi can’t find Mbappé
Lionel Messi is trying to find Mbappé in depth but it’s a bit too long for the French international.
Montpellier holds the shock
Put to the test by the Parisians, Montpellier nevertheless held on thanks to their excellent goalkeeper Jonas Omlin!
Neymar collapses in the box
Well launched by Messi, Neymar tries a hook in the area but is taken back by Sakho! No penalty for Willy Delajod.
ANOTHER OMLIN STOP!
Found at the entrance to the surface, Leo Messi rolls up a shot that Jonas Omlin pushes back on a nice horizontal!
OMLIN IS AMAZING TONIGHT!
Another free kick for PSG obtained by Neymar who is very very stirring tonight. Messi will take it from 25 meters and he forces Omlin to a still magnificent stop! The guardian is boiling hot!
OMLIN STOPS THE PENALTY OF MBAPPÉ!
Kylian Mbappé grabs the ball and presents himself against Omlin! The Montpellier goalkeeper defeats Mbappé with an incredible save! Left and opposite hand please!
Video refereeing on a hand in the box
Video arbitration for a hand in Jordan Ferri’s penalty area! Arm off the body, it does not forgive … Terrible for Montpellier!
MONTPELLIER IS DOING WELL!
It combines perfectly between Mbappé and Neymar and the Brazilian, very restless, overflows in the surface! He crosses left foot and Omlin gets a hole! Fortunately, a defender clears!
THE BIG OPPORTUNITY FOR PARIS!
What an incredible pass from Messi who finds an impossible zone in depth! Neymar takes advantage of it but is too short in front of Omlin! What a gesture from the Argentinian!
The pressure is mounting
Paris is combining better and better with Mbappé and Hakimi! The Moroccan overflows and crosses but is countered by Sainte-Luce! Corner for PSG.
Sergio Ramos brings down Wahi
Sergio Ramos fouls Wahi who was trying to take the Spaniard from behind! It’s pretty well done by the former Real!
Omlin put to work
Twice, Jonas Omlin is forced to intervene with his fists! The Montpellier goalkeeper is very vigilant.
Neymar intensifies defensively
First defensive gesture from Neymar who comes to stick a big stamp on Téji Savanier. The Hérault captain remains on the ground.
Ferri’s foul on Neymar
At the entrance to the surface, Jordan Ferri mows down Neymar and gives an excellent free kick to the Parisians… The Brazilian takes the wall, it was pretty badly shot!
PSG-MONTPELLIER KICK OFF!
And here we go for this PSG-Montpellier counting for the second day of Ligue 1! Victorious in the first match, Paris wants to start the second against the Héraultais.
The stats are not in favor of the MHSC
Paris have won 8 of their last 9 matches against Montpellier in Ligue 1. The only exception: a defeat on April 30, 2019 at La Mosson (2-3).
Montpellier is the team that has lost the most away matches in Ligue 1 in 2022 (8 defeats). The MHSC remains on 5 losses in a row away from home in L1, but has not done worse since March-August 2013 (7).
The composition of Montpellier
Omlin – Tchato, Sacko, Cozza, Sainte-Luce – Chotard, Ferri, Savanier – Maouassa, Wahi, Khazri
The composition of PSG
Absent for the first match, Mbappé is back. We stay in a 3-4-1-2 pattern.
Donnarumma – Ramos, Marquinhos, Kimpembe – Hakimi, Verratti, Vitinha, Nuno Mendes – Messi – Neymar, Mbappe.
Sakho at home
The Hérault central defender is back at the Parc des Princes nine years after leaving PSG, with the number 75 on his back. He wasn’t on the scoresheet in both clashes last season.
