PSG vs Monaco
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st April 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris)
If Lille fail to beat Toulouse earlier in the day then PSG will be champions without even kicking a ball, which would feel strange as the team enter the pitch. PSG would prefer perhaps that Lille did win and that they can win on the pitch when they take on Monaco.
The good news for PSG is that they usually beat Monaco and their record over the club is fantastic. It would be ironic if this is the game where PSG can win the league given that Monaco did become their great rival having won the league from PSG in 2017.
PSG’s form has been very poor for their standards losing their last 2 games in a row. However they are still undefeated at home and have won 15 of their 16 games drawing one. They are scoring on average 3 goals a game at home and have only conceded 8 goals in Paris all season.
Monaco are in 16th on 32 points and are not out of the woods just yet. But they have vastly improved in the last 2 months and it would be seen as a shock now to see the team get pulled into the relegation battle. They have lost just 1 game in their past five matches.
Away form is much better from Monaco who have gone their last 4 games without defeat, although 3 of those have ended in draws.
PSG vs Monaco: Head to Head
PSG have won the last 8 meetings between the teams.
Monaco have not beaten PSG in 10 meetings going back to 2016.
PSG have scored 15 goals in the last 3 meetings with Monaco.
PSG vs Monaco: Prediction
Incredibly PSG have messed the chance up to win the league 3 times, surely they will not make the same mistake in Paris against a team they love to play and beat.
The big question is has Kylian Mbappe made it up with PSG coach Thomas Tuchel who dropped the player after some negative comments he made about team commitment.
Mbappe could have the chance to wrap up the title in style and score against his former club. There is also suggestions that Neymar will be back at least from the bench to hopefully enjoy the title celebrations. Monaco will try, but they usually always come unstuck against PSG.
