Tuchel's dismissal and Pochettino's appointment came suddenly. The loss of PSG's dominant position in the elite led to this decision from the management. Under the leadership of the new coach, the club has already played four games and gained three pragmatic victories. Restrained football is the signature for Mauricio's teams, but everyone is used to seeing goal extravaganza on the football field from PSG. Let's see what this symbiosis will bring for Paris. With the arrival of Pochettino, Icardi, Herrera, and Diallo immediately got a place on the football pitch. The personnel leapfrog in the team continues, as there is a creative search from the coach. The leading roles in PSG will be played by its main stars - Mbappe, Verratti, Neymar, Di Maria, and Marquinhos.

Montpellier is a middle peasant of the French championship, and it fully corresponds to this status with its results. The Paladins take eleventh place in the standings, lagging eight points behind the European Cup zone. The team's condition in the last rounds was weak - Michel Der Zakarian's charges cannot win in the First League for six matches in a row (four losses). If it were not for this sad streak without victories, the team could really claim to be in the Europa League zone. This French club has a range of players, on the backbone of which a really strong team can be built (Delors, Laborde, Mollet, Savanier, Chotard, Omlin, and Pedro Mendes. If the coaching staff manages to return the team leaders to good shape, then Montpellier can be expected to fight for getting into the top six of the championship.
Montpellier approaches the confrontation with the grandee in a weak shape and with obvious problems in defense. Der Zakarian's charges will sit back on their heels and try to convert their few goal attempts. It is difficult to believe in such a positive scenario for the visitors. Rather, the home team will methodically destroy opponents.
Prediction for the match: Paris Saint-Germain to win with -1.5 handicap
