Montpellier preview: In the midst of a scrappy battle for survival

The situation at the bottom of the standings in Ligue 1 is tense, with many teams fighting for survival, and Montpellier are one of them. Thanks to a couple of wins in the last four games, Montpellier are currently outside of the relegation zone, though with just one point more than the first team in it.

The team will be without injured Axel Gueguin, but the rest of the team is in good shape.

PSG preview: Cruising towards another title

While PSG have failed to win in their last three games in the league, drawing each time, they are still comfortably sitting at the top of the standings, 10 points ahead of the next team. On top of that, PSG have reached the semi-finals in Coupe de France and Champions League quarter-finals, so the French champions are perhaps on their way to multiple trophies.

At the moment, Presnel Kimpembe, Marco Asensio, Layvin Kurzawa, Marquinhos, Sergio Rico, and Milan Skriniar are on PSG's injury list.

Predicted lineup: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Pereira, Beraldo, Mendes – Vitinha, Ruiz, Kang-in – Mbappe, Dembele, Kolo Muani
