Paris Saint-Germain welcome Montpellier to the Parc des Princes in Ligue 1 on Saturday evening.

The defending champions have begun the new season in imperious form, rattling in nine unanswered goals across the Trophee des Champions and their league opener last weekend.

Montpellier also got off to a winning start in Ligue 1 but needed a strike from Teji Savanier in the last ten minutes to overcome Troyes after the two clubs shared four goals in the opening quarter of an hour.

Here's everything you need to know about the meeting between this winning pair.

PSG team news

While Lionel Messi and Neymar ran riot against Clermont Foot last weekend - scoring or assisting each of PSG's five goals - Kylian Mbappe had to watch from home. The jet-heeled forward has since returned to full training after missing the opener with adductor discomfort.

The involvement of Julian Draxler (knee) and Colin Dagba (calf) remains doubtful.

Montpellier team news

PSG vs Montpellier score prediction

Theoretically, with each passing week of training under the martinet-mandate of Christophe Galtier, PSG should continue to improve across the opening months of the season.

Coupled by the potential return of the unrelenting prodigy that is Mbappe, Montpellier's rearguard - which conceded twice to a Troyes side that averaged less than one goal per game last season - may be fretting over their upcoming task.

Prediction: PSG 3-0 Montpellier
