The win helped Mauricio Pochettino's side sit atop the points table with seven wins in seven outings. But most of their wins have been scrappy, at best. And now, they face another tough test when they host Montpellier.

Messi, who arrived from Barcelona on a free transfer to join the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, is yet to make a mark in France. The Argentine superstar has made a second-half appearance in an away Ligue 1 debut. The 34-year-old was then substituted during his home bow. And he was forced to sit at home in the midweek as PSG traveled to Metz.

Now, the chances of Messi missing back-to-back matches are pretty high. According to reports, Messi is yet to resume running exercises after a collision during PSG's 2-1 win over Lyon. He's said to be nursing a bruise on his left knee.

Three days later, PSG will host Manchester City in a blockbuster UEFA Champions League group match. They certainly can't afford to risk the star player before that.

Montpellier are in 10th place in the Ligue 1 standings, with two wins and three draws from seven outings. Olivier Dall'Oglio's men were held to a 3-3 draw by Bordeaux in their last match at home.

Head-to-head

PSG lead 16-8 37 meetings. But in the last meeting, they played out a 2-2 draw.
