PSG are aiming to consolidate top spot in Ligue 1 as they host Monaco at the Parc des Princes. The Champions have been back to their ruthless best in recent weeks having scored six goals in each of their last two matches. They are backed to ease past an inconsistent Monaco team.

PSG Form


PSG were rampant in their midweek Coupe de la Ligue clash as they claimed a 6-1 victory over Saint-Etienne. It was yet another ruthless performance from the champions with Mauro Icardi netting a hat-trick while Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were also on target. 

It was the second straight match were the Parisians have scored six goals having also won 6-0 over Linas-Monitlhery in the Coupe de France. Thomas Tuchel's men are head and shoulders above in France and have won their last eight matches in all competitions.

Striker Mauro Icardi has certainly taken to life in Paris with 17 goals in 19 matches in all competitions.

Centre back Presnel Kimpembe is ruled out of Sunday’s match with injury while midfielders Julian Draxler and Idrissa Gueye are also sidelined. Thomas Tuchel is likely to stick with much of the team that faced Saint-Etienne with Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar all set to start in attack.

Monaco Form 


Monaco were victorious in the Coupe de la Ligue as they triumphed 2-1 against Reims. Keita Balde opened the scoring midway through the second half before netting the winner in added time. 

Robert Moreno’s men claimed a 5-1 victory over Lille in their previous Ligue 1 outing and are up to seventh on the table. Despite showing signs of improvement in recent weeks, they remain poor on their travels having claimed just two wins in their last 14 away matches in Ligue 1.

Monaco News


Monaco are without forwards Pietro Pellegri and William Geubbels who are sidelined with injury. Striker Islam Slimani was rested in the Coupe de la Ligue and should return to partner Wissam Ben Yedder in attack.

PSG vs Monaco Match Up


Mauro Icardi has been excellent for PSG in recent weeks and has scored nine goals in his last 10 matches across all competitions. The Argentine striker has formed a prolific partnership with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe which should prove too much to handle for Monaco.

Monaco also have some attacking quality with Wissam Ben Yedder and Islam Slimani but their open style often leaves them exposed at the back. They are likely to struggle against the superior attacking quality of PSG.
