PSG vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st February 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
Since 2012 no other clubs in Ligue 1 have won the league except for PSG and Monaco so when they meet the county watches, and this should be a very good game with a lot of attacking play.
Depending on other results PSG has the chance to go 1st in the league but at the very least a win would keep them 2nd and perhaps just a point behind Lille as the champions in an unfamiliar position start to turn the screw.
PSG have won their last 3 games in a row and of course this has been a very special week for the club as they went to Barcelona in the Champions League and won 4-1 in their first leg knock out round.
PSG will be buzzing for this game and it gives them an opportunity to stop Monaco in their tracks who are, of course, a potential title rival.
Monaco are in 4th place and if Lille have won then they need to win this game to keep pace at the top otherwise they could fall 9 points behind.
Monaco have been in very good form and have earned 13 points from their last 15 but they drew 2-2 at home to Lorient last weekend and that was seen as a surprise given the circumstances that Lorient are 4th from bottom.

PSG vs Monaco: Prediction
This is the game where there will be many questions asked for both teams. PSG started the season slow but have shown some great consistency and of course they also had to change coaches with Tuchel out and Pochettino in.
Monaco have shown a lot of consistency and they can hurt PSG but it is hard to back anything else other than the home win. PSG need to step up just like they did in the Champions League and we believe this match will underline why Monaco, as good as they are, are still the pretenders to the crown overall.
PSG are 1.62 at home and that is good for them, you won’t see better all season, so even if it’s odds on there is some value there and we will take that.
