AS Monaco is hosting Paris Saint-Germain at Stade Louis II in a derby match in round 11 in the French Ligue 1.
Monaco was struggling for a while in Ligue 1, but now they are on a 2-game winning streak during which Monaco has scored 6 goals while conceding only 1 goal. With 17 points, 17 scored goals, and 14 conceded goals, Monaco is in 6th place in the Ligue 1 standings. Ben Yedder has scored 6 goals and added 1 assist for Monaco so far this season, while Volland, Disasi, Diop, and Badiashile added 2 goals each. Volland also has 2 assists. Lecomte and Pellegri are both injured, while Aguilar is suspended because of the yellow cards. In their latest Ligue 1 match against Nice on the road, Monaco has had 38% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 77% of the correct passes. Monaco wasn’t playing particularly well in this match, but they used their chances, and Monaco has won this match 1-2. Monaco is a good team, but they are still finding their way on the defensive end, and Monaco is still waiting on someone else besides Ben Yedder to step up in the attack end. I think Monaco will reach the Champions League spot, but they will need to win a lot of games if they want to stay in the title race.
After the first two losses in Ligue 1 at the start of the season, PSG has won every Ligue 1 game after that, and they have conceded only 1 goal while doing it. PSG is at the top of the Ligue 1 table with 24 points, massive 26 scored goals, and only 3 conceded goals. In their last match against Rennais at home, PSG has had 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 85% of the correct passes. With 2 scored goals in the first half and an own goal from Rennais in the second half, PSG has won this game 3-0. Mbappe has scored 7 goals for PSG so far this season, while Kean is stepping up, and he scored 3 goals so far. Mbappe added 4 assists, while Sarabia also has 4 assists. Bernat, Kehrer, Verratti, Icardi, Letellier, Draxler, and Kean are all injured, while Guaye and Kimpembe are both suspended. PSG will probably be getting Neymar back for this game, but they are missing a lot of good players, and with the international break over, you never know who will test positive for Coronavirus. PSG is the biggest favorite to win the title once again, but it won’t be as easy as last season.
Monaco is still undefeated at home this season, and they haven’t lost any of their last 8 home games. This is one of the biggest derbies in France, and I believe this is the golden opportunity for Monaco to beat PSG. When these two teams meet, we usually see a lot of goals, and I don’t think this game will be the exception.
