PREVIEW: Paris Saint-Germain v Montpellier – Week 19

It wasn’t too long ago that this was a match at the top of the table. There’s no surprise that Paris Saint-Germain are at the top, but Montpellier are enjoying a different life in mid-table. Le Paillade is one of the quintessential typically inconsistent sides in Ligue 1. Beat Rennes […]

Monaco Martial the Attack against Benfica

OK everyone. It’s a midweek European round and we all know what the key question is. Can the French teams muster more than one goal between them this time? Don’t panic. If they don’t, it’s not the end of the world. If they again also don’t concede any goals, again, […]
