Montpellier vs PSG build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Montpellier are two-time Coupe de France winners, but they haven’t reached a final in 27 years since losing the 1994 showcase to Auxierre. Michel Der Zakarian’s side have had a pretty straightforward route to the semi-final so far, facing lower-league opposition in three of their four matches.
After a 2-0 win over fellow Ligue 1 side Strasbourg in the third round, fifth-tier Olympique Ales, Chateaubriant and Canet Roussillon (both of the fourth-tier) all fell to put Montpellier on the verge of a cup final. However, in order to reach that final they will have to face another Ligue 1 side.
For PSG, the Coupe de France may be their best opportunity to end the 2020/21 season with a major trophy (not counting the Trophee des Champions). Mauricio Pochettino’s men are out of the Champions League and face a close battle to retain their Ligue 1 crown, so a chance to win the Coupe de France yet again will be welcomed.
PSG are the most successful team in the competition’s history with 13 victories and have won the competition in five of the past six seasons. They have also made a tough path to the semi-finals look easy, cruising past SM Caen, Stade Brest, Lille and Angers, scoring 12 goals without conceding.
- Montpellier (vs Strasbourg): Bertraud; Souquet, Hilton, Congre, Ristic; Sambia, Le Tallec, Ferri; Laborde, Delort, Mavididi.
- PSG (vs Rennes): Navas; Dagba, Marquinhos, Kimpembe*, Kurzawa*; Herrera*, Pereira, Draxler; Di Maria, Kean, Neymar.
Florent Mollet and Teji Savanier are available for Montpellier after suspension and could go straight back into the XI.
Presnel Kimpembe is suspended for PSG after his red card against Rennes, while Ander Herrera also misses out for an accumulation of yellow cards. Layvin Kurzawa picked up an injury at the weekend and joins Marco Verratti and Juan Bernat on the sidelines.

Players to watch:
- Montpellier: If Montpellier are to become the first team to score against PSG in the Coupe de France this season, Andy Delort is the man most likely to breach their defence. The 29-year-old is Montpellier’s second-top scorer in the league this season, netting 14 times, but he leads the way with three goals in the Coupe de France, just under half of the club’s total tally. Two of those three goals came in the last round against Canet Roussillon, and he has followed that up with two in his past three league games, taking good form into this week’s match.
- PSG: But in the PSG corner is a man who may feel he has something to prove after coming under scrutiny in recent weeks. In PSG’s Champions League exit to Manchester City Mauro Icardi was criticised for failing to trouble the opposition defence, as the French side looked toothless in attack. It’s nothing new for Icardi, who has scored seven goals in 19 Ligue 1 matches, but he has found a home in the Coupe de France. Despite playing just two games, Icardi has four goals in the cup, scoring in a 3-0 win over Lille and a hat-trick in the quarter-finals against Angers.
