Ligue 1: Paris Saint-Germain vs. Montpellier HSC Preview and Livestream

High-flying Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to claim their eighth Ligue 1 victory from as many matches when they host Montpellier HSC on Saturday night.

The visitors, meanwhile, will be aiming to secure their first league victory at the Parc des Princes since they won 3-1 back in May 2010.

Paris Saint-Germain maintained their 100% start in Ligue 1, but only just, when they scored a dramatic winner in stoppage time – for the second successive league game – away against Metz to secure a 2-1 victory on Wednesday night.

Summer signing Achraf Hakimi opened the scoring in the fifth minute, before Boubakar Kouyate's bullet header from a corner brought Metz level shortly before the break.

However, the hosts – who saw their captain Dylan Bronn and head coach Frederic Antonetti sent off in stoppage time – were unable to hold on for a point, as Hakimi cut inside from the right and rifled in his second of the night and a dramatic 95th minute winner, sparking wild celebrations which caused tempers to flare between both sides as the full time whistle blew.

Mauricio Pochettino's men became just the fourth French top-flight outfit in history to win their opening seven league games. Following Marseille's goalless draw with Angers, Les Parisiens have now extended their lead at the Ligue 1 summit to seven points, though Marseille do have a game in hand.

PSG, who have already scored 20 league goals so far this season, have an impressive record against this weekend's opponents Montpellier, winning six and drawing one of their last eight meetings against them, as well as scoring at least twice on each occasion.

As the Parisian outfit are desperate to reclaim their Ligue 1 crown from Lille this campaign, Pochettino will be keen for his side to build on their strong start with another three points on home soil.

After losing their opening game of the new Ligue 1 season at home against Marseille, Montpellier have since accumulated nine points from a possible 15 available.

Their most recent result on Wednesday evening saw them play out an entertaining 3-3 draw against Bordeaux, who snatched a point when substitute Samuel Kalu scored in the 85th minute.

An earlier brace from Valere Germain as well as a strike from Florent Mollet were not enough for the hosts to come away with all three points, though Olivier Dall'Oglio's men have climbed into the top 10 and are now just three points behind the Champions League places.

Montpellier, who have yet to win away from home this season, face a difficult challenge on Saturday against an in-form PSG side. La Paillade have lost by at least a four-goal margin in each of their last four league visits to the Parc de Princes, including a 4-0 defeat last season.

Dall'Oglio's side have scored in every game so far this campaign, netting at least twice on five occasions, and with PSG having conceded in each of their last three matches across all competitions, the visitors can be confident of causing problems in the final third.
