How to catch PSG vs Montpellier and more on matchday two in Ligue 1

August 12, 2022 By Michelle Bonsu
PSG have made a strong start to the season, and will look to keep the positive momentum going as they take on Montpellier on matchday two.

The 2022/23 Ligue 1 season has kicked off with a flying start, with several teams all picking up victories on matchday one. Of course, the table will start shaping up as the campaign progresses, but for now, as expected, things are pretty congested after matchday one.

Here is all you need to know ahead of matchday two.

Ligue 1: Top matches to catch on matchday two

Monaco vs Rennes: Both Monaco and Rennes had strong campaigns last season, with Monaco finishing in third spot while Rennes earned fourth place, which gives them a slot in the Europa League. Les Rouges-et-Blancs come into this match having battled to a 2-1 road win over Strasbourg, while Rennes will be aiming to bounce back after a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Lorient.

PSG vs Montpellier: PSG have really come bursting out of the gates so far this season. Now under the tutelage of Christophe Galtier, Les Parisiens first cruised to a 4-0 win over Nantes in the French Super Cup before crushing Clermont 5-0 on the road in their first Ligue 1 match. In both matches, Kylian Mbappe was out injured, but the French youngster is expected to make his return to a line-up that has seen both Neymar and Lionel Messi find the back of the net on multiple occasions. Montpellier, for their part earned three points after surviving a tough test against Troyes, during which Teji Savanier's late goal was enough to give them a 3-2 victory.

Brest vs Marseille: Marseille finished as runners-up last season, but it was hardly a close race as PSG won the title by a 15 point margin. This time around, they will again hope to try to challenge for the Ligue 1 title, and have started off brightly following a comfortable 4-1 result against Reims on matchday one. Given that Brest were on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline against Lens, Marseille will naturally look to make it back to back wins in order to keep pace with the early leaders on top of the table.
