PSG's goal-scoring in the last meeting all came from Kylian Mbappé. The 22-year-old wunderkind broke out in a big way during the 2018 World Cup in Russia and has been dazzling fans ever since.
PSG has Lionel Messi in its arsenal this season, but the ex-Barcelona striker has been ruled out for today's match against Montpellier.
Montpellier have drawn a rash of red cards in their recent outings. Matheus Thuler's reckless challenge against Gerson Rodrigues last weekend is exactly the sort of thing the team needs to avoid if it wants to find success against PSG.
But maintaining discipline in the face of some of the world's top strikers in Mbappé and Neymar is more easily said than done.
