PSG is welcoming AS Monaco to Parc des Princes in round 26 in the French Ligue 1.
PSG is coming off of a brutal Champions League win against Barcelona, on the road I might add. PSG conceded a goal from the penalty spot, but they have scored 4 unanswered goals for the rest of the game, and PSG is basically in the next stage of this competition. PSG is on a 5-game winning streak, and they have scored 12 goals during that streak while conceding only 1 goal. In their last Ligue 1 game, PSG was hosting Nice, and they were solid with 55% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a high 91% of the correct passes. This was a tight game, but PSG was the better team here, and they have won this game 2-1. With these 3 points PSG has taken over second place in the standings, but since Lyon has won their game yesterday, Lyon is now at the top. PSG has scored a massive 57 goals in 25 games, which makes them the best offensive team in the league, but PSG has also conceded only 15 goals, and they are sharing the mantle of the best defensive teams with Lille. Mbappe has been in brutal form, and he has scored 16 goals and added 6 assists so far for PSG. Bernat, Dagba, Neymar, and Di Maria are all injured, while Pembele is still questionable. PSG is having a tough time getting to the top in the league but having the competition will only make them play better both in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.
Monaco is in fantastic form, and they have won 9 of their last 11 games, while the other 2 games ended in a draw. Thanks to this impressive streak, Monaco has climbed to 4th place with 49 points, and they have scored 52 goals so far. Defensively, Monaco could be better because they have conceded 37 goals. Monaco was playing against Lorient at home in their latest Ligue 1 game, and they have had impressive 70% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Despite all of their dominance, Monaco was losing twice in this game, but luckily for them, Ben Yedder has scored a tying goal in the 93rd minute. The final result of this match was 2-2. Ben Yedder has now scored 13 goals, while Volland added 12 goals. Martins and Geubbels are both injured, while Golovin is questionable. Monaco is playing well, and they look unstoppable right now, but their shaky defense could cost them in the future.
The trends are even here, but PSG has not lost in their last 5 home games to Monaco, while Monaco is on a 6-game winning streak on the road. Monaco has actually beaten PSG in round 11 of this season, and because PSG was playing earlier this week, I will once again side with Monaco because they are rested and in good form.
