PSG-Montpellier Ligue 1 clash postponed

Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 game with Montpellier this Saturday has been called off due to ongoing protests

Thomas Tuchel’s side dropped their first league points of the season by drawing 2-2 at Bordeaux last weekend ahead of their top-of-the-table clash with Montpellier.

However, the PSG have now confirmed the match at their Parc des Princes has been postponed due to the protests in Paris.

“Paris Saint-Germain have been informed by the Paris Police Prefecture that Saturday’s home match against Montpellier, originally planned for Saturday 8 December at 16:00 has been postponed,” read a statement on the club website.

Antoine Griezmann praises Neymar Jr.

The new Barcelona signing believes it would be very difficult to get the Brazilian back at Barcelona.

“The club is now waiting for the LFP to reschedule the match.”

The protests in France have come about due to increases in fuel tax with the police resorting to using tear gas, stun grenades and water cannons on protestors.

Since the start of the demonstrations in November, three people have lost their lives.

For now at least, PSG will retain their focus on Wednesday’s visit to Strasbourg.
