Opening his schedule in the second month of the year, in which he will be re-joining the Champions League, PSG will face Montpellier this Saturday, February 1st, fulfilling the schedule of the twenty-second round of the 2019/2020 version of the French Championship.
The meeting will be the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris. The forecast is for the ball to start rolling at 1:30 pm (Brasília time).
The elite division of France has 20 teams. The season has 38 days and at the end of the dispute leads the top three to the Champions League, with the first two securing a place in the group stage and the third having to dispute the qualifiers to get there. Whoever takes fourth place goes to Europa League.
The relegation zone is reserved for the three worst, but there is also a difference in quality between the positions.
The latter two go directly to Ligue 2, while the antepenultimate still has a chance to escape the fall by playing in the playoffs with a Second Division club.
Still involved in four competitions, the coach Thomas Tuchel tried to promote the relay of the squad in the match of Wednesday, January 29, for the round of 16 of the Cup of France 2019/2020 against Pau, in the house of the rival.
He chose a team that was almost entirely reserve. Argentine Mauro Icardi was the only player who has been used more regularly, even though he cannot be considered a starter.
It was enough to guarantee a 2-0 victory and take a step forward in the dispute.
For this Saturday’s match it is likely that the main team will be called upon to defend an unbeaten record that reached 18 matches.
There have been 16 wins and two draws since the beginning of November last year.
In Ligue 1, PSG have 52 points (17 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses). Ten more than Olympique Marseille, second place.
Even without having a schedule as tight as that of their rival this Saturday, Montpellier try to use the same strategy in relation to the confrontation with the tiny Belfort.
He placed the reserve team in the match of the round of 16 of the French Cup played on Tuesday, January 28.
However, with a much less qualified squad, he ended up being eliminated from the tournament.
After a goalless draw in regulation time and overtime, he took the worst in the penalty shootout (5 to 4).
Now, the French Championship has become the dispute that remains until the end of the season.
With 33 points (nine wins, six draws and six defeats), he started the dispute of the twenty-second round in the fourth position in the leaderboard, the last one that gives place to the competition of international tournaments next season.
Performance as a visitor, however, is much lower. It is the thirteenth place in the Ligue 1 ranking that counts only the results that teams obtain outside their domains.
Of the 30 points he played as a column two, he won eight (one win, five draws and four defeats) having scored nine goals and conceded 12.
