Monaco vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 20 November 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)
Arguably one of the biggest fixtures to take place in France will be taking place on Friday evening when Monaco meet PSG at home. Only two clubs have won the league since 2012 and it is these two, so we should expect a cracking game of football.
Monaco have dropped 13 points this season but in their last few weeks before the international break they showed some encouraging signs by winning 2 games in a row. They beat Bordeaux and Nice scoring six goals in those two matches.
As a result Monaco have risen to sixth place and are only 2 points behind Lille in 2nd . Still there is a 7 point gap to league leaders PSG.
PSG have pulled 5 points clear at the top of the league from Lille and that is no mean feat after the champions had started slowly this season. But the club have been on a fantastic run which has saw them win seven games in a row.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have an incredible goalscoring record, notching in 26 goals so far from 10 games and only conceding 3. Currently PSG has the 2nd best away record in the league with 4 wins and 1 defeat and that includes winning their last four in a row. They have conceded just 1 goal away from home also.
Monaco vs PSG Head to Head
Last season PSG came to Monaco and beat them in this fixture 4-1.
PSG have scored 21 goals against Monaco in their last five league meetings.
Monaco have not beaten PSG in the league since 2016.
The last 5 league matches has seen a 100% success rate to see over 3.5 goals.
Monaco vs PSG Prediction
We expect to see a good game but the one worry is that so many of the players from both sides have been involved in long haul international games and some fatigue may play a role in this game.
This is a fixture that produces many goals but because of all the recent travelling it is very possible that we won’t see as many as we once hoped and this is a market possibly worth looking into as there is value on backing low goals.
For once PSG are a decent price to win the game and the club are on a roll, although check latest team news, but they shouldn’t have many problems to get all three points in this encounter.
