Monaco vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 1st December 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)
Only two teams have won Ligue 1 since 2012 and that is PSG and Monaco so this will be a very anticipated game as Monaco search to upset the league champions.
The home side has improved this season compared to last when they were almost relegated, but they have found it hard to leave mid table and it has been a genuine struggle for them. They come into this game in 14th place with 18 points and a win should take them into the top 10. However, Monaco have lost 2 of their last three games and last weekend they were beaten away to Bordeaux.
But Monaco’s home form has been excellent lately and they have won 4 games in a row. The only criticism with this is that all of those teams have been in the bottom half of the league.
PSG are in 1st place and that is where we would expect them. For them they have dropped more points than they would wish and have already lost 3 games this season. However, the champions have 33 points and are 8 points in the lead of 2nd place. Despite having some injury problems, they are far and away the best side in the league and have scored 30 goals already and conceded just 8. Away from home PSG has the best record winning 15 from 21 points and their last away game ended in a 2-1 win over Brest.
Monaco vs PSG: Head to Head
- Last season PSG won this game 4-0.
- PSG have won the last 9 meetings in a row.
- PSG have scored 18 goals in the last 4 meetings with Monaco.
Monaco vs PSG: Prediction
Monaco will want to prove something and try to be a thorn in PSG’s side, but the truth is they simply do not possess the quality to get that far.
The home side has improved, but have plenty to learn and still slip up against the bigger sides in the league.
PSG have a fantastic recent record over them and seem to score goals at will. And of course, Neymar returned from injury last weekend and the team will come here in very good moods and boasting a lot of confidence.
We can’t see past a PSG victory and also, we think that there will be a lot of goals in this game with both teams leaving gaps and taking risks.
