Monaco vs PSG Match Preview

Monaco have seen it all. Their glory days only lasted for as long as they did and they are now a pale shadow of their former self. 2016/2017 season was their peak when they sensationally dethroned perennial winners PSG and nearly conquered Europe by reaching the semis of the Champions League. Since then, their plunge has been considerable. Currently wallowing in 13th place, they ran out 2-1 losers against Bordeaux last weekend.

 However, a run of positive results has propelled the club in the right direction; they have only lost twice in 7 matches. Impressive, but not by Monaco’s standards. Much credit to their coach Leonardo Jardim seems to have build his side’s confidence heading into this clash but coming up against a side of PSG stature, he will have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to draw a result.

The Parisians, on the other hand, are living up to the high standards they are used to and even seem to get better. Sitting a comfortable 8 points at the top of the standings and sending a strong message across Europe in the Champions League qualifiers. Time will tell but as things stand, PSG are surely destined for greatness this season.

A storm was brewing in Paris in the early days of the season after a much-publicized transfer saga involving one of their star players and rumours of division among the squad. Coach Thomas Tuchell has seemingly calmed the hurricane and carved something close to a masterpiece out of the proven winners.

After 14 matches (W11 D3), their goal-haul is at an astonishing 30, all while letting in only 8. PSG are roaring, and other big names in Europe have taken note.

Monaco vs PSG Team News

Both sides have a few confirmed injuries but a host of doubtful players whose participation is not guaranteed.

Those set to definitely miss this clash are Monaco’s Willem Geubbels and Stevan Jovetic, who are injured, while PSG are without Mbe Soh, Abdou Diallo, Thilo Kehrer, Ander Herrera, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Marquinhos, Juan Bernat, Thomas Meunier.

Monaco vs Paris SG Predictions

Years ago, this would have been a much anticipated high-action encounter and while the rivalry is still there, it has been blunted by Monaco’s deterioration. It is no longer the big money derby it was touted back then and it is difficult not to call Monaco underdogs here. PSG should easily carry the day even after a hard-fought 2-2 draw at Real Madrid earlier in the week. Goals should see the light of day in this encounter.
