PSG vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 12th January 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
PSG look like they are marching to another title. However, there is a small chance that Marseille could upset that, and PSG will be on full alert when they play at home to Monaco at the weekend.
Marseille are just 4 points behind as PSG go into this game, but the current champions do have 2 games extra to play.
Form is fantastic with 5 wins in a row and they have collected 27 points from their last 30 available. At home they have won 8 from 9 games with just one defeat and they have conceded just 3 goals so far.
It has been all change at Monaco recently as Leonardo Jardim was sacked for a second time in a year. The reason doesn’t seem clear as Monaco had improved under him and had just beaten Lille 5-1. But the owners at Monaco sacked him and replaced him with former Spanish coach Roberto Moreno.
Moreno started well as Monaco knocked Reims out of the Coupe de France, but this game will be his first league match in charge. He has clearly been thrown in at the deep end.
Monaco are in 7th place and are in good form and unbeaten in their last 4 games. A win could take the side into the top 5, which would be remarkable after dicing with relegation for the past 18 months.
Whilst the club are unbeaten away from home in their last two games; they have also only won two games on the road this season.
PSG vs Monaco: Head to Head
- Last season PSG won this fixture 3-1.
- PSG have scored 14 goals against Monaco in their last 3 league meetings.
- Monaco have not won in Paris in a league match since 2010.
PSG vs Monaco: Prediction
Monaco may have a new manager which can bring a positive effect but it is questionable there was anything wrong with who they had. This is a poor decision to bring Moreno in and make PSG away his first game in charge for a league match.
PSG have a lot of success and always score lots of goals against Monaco and the champions are in great form where goals are coming from everywhere.
We expect Monaco to have their chances and fight and perhaps the score can remain respectable but we fully expect PSG to get yet another win against Monaco.
