Pochettino’s PSG still playing with fire
It took a 95th minute winner from Achraf Hakimi for PSG to pick up all three points away to Metz in Ligue 1 this week.
And, although it spared the Parisians blushes in a game they should be comfortably winning, Hakimi’s match-winning double also underlined how Mauricio Pochettino’s side don’t have to rely on their big three for goals.
Lionel Messi was missing with a bruised knee anyway and his status for the weekend is up in the air, although the hosts won’t be lacking in the forward areas – it’s the backline that remains a concern.
PSG have kept two clean sheets in nine competitive fixtures this term, one of which was against newly-promoted Clermont at home, so a visiting team as potent as Montpellier right now will really fancy their chances of scoring at least once.
Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men are second only to PSG for goals scored this season and were five minutes away from claiming their third straight home win when Bordeaux struck to make it 3-3 on Wednesday.
They can take some positives from the game, including the goalscoring form of Valere Germain who made it three in three since his recent switch from Marseille.
Teji Savanier is still one of the better number tens in the division and Stephy Mavididi has an eye for goal too, so we are quite positive about the visitors’ chances of scoring in their 13th domestic away trip in succession on Saturday.
But the capital club have been justifying their short odds at home this term and, going back to the start of last season, PSG have now won 16 of their last 22 home league games.
Backing Pochettino’s side with both teams scoring is becoming an automatic play for PSG at the moment and we will again recommend it with a correct score bet of 3-2 this time because of Montpellier’s current cavalier style.
