Game of the weekend in Ligue 1 will see the Champions PSG take on a Monaco side who have started well and will be looking to compete for the Ligue 1 title.Monaco have some quality players but this is a big challenge as they face a PSG side who have won all three of their games this year and have added strength in depth with the addition of the yet to play Angel di Maria. With Edison Cavani and Lavezzi manning the front three as Ibrahimovich is still injured PSG have played three and won three. PSG have quality throughout their side and their attacking quartet are ridiculously strong. Matuidi and Lucas Moura have been excellent thus far and Laurent Blanc's side look to have an advantage on everyone else already this year.
Monaco though have home advantage here and with Bernard Silva, Mouthino and Anthony Marital will be looking to get at the PSG backline . Martial is a top class striker and he looks the real deal, being linked with moves to several big clubs across Europe this summer. If Monaco are to pull off a shock here I think Martial is the man to score the goals for the home team.
This is one of those games that are really tough to call. I think Monaco should have more respect here playing at home and I believe it would be closer to a coinflip in real price terms if not for PSG's star studded squad. I think that Monaco could pull off a shock here but it's more likely that Monaco's quality defence manages to hold PSG's much vaunted attack here and I think that this one finishes a draw.
