PSG vs. Monaco Preview (What To Know Before Betting)
PSG vs. Monaco
The Parc des Princes sets the stage for the recommencement of Ligue 1 action on Friday evening as Paris Saint-Germain hosts Monaco in an intriguing contest.
Luis Enrique’s squad claimed their position at the top of the rankings with a convincing 3-0 victory over Reims in their last outing. In contrast, Adi Hutter’s team faced a stalemate with Le Havre, settling for a 0-0 draw a fortnight ago.
Eager to rectify their course following a halted five-game winning streak, PSG sought redemption after a 2-1 Champions League loss to AC Milan, marking their second defeat in two European away games this season.
PSG vs. Monaco
Against Reims, Kylian Mbappe, amid speculation about Real Madrid ending their interest in him, swiftly broke the deadlock with a remarkable side-footed volley just three minutes into the game. In the second half, he completed a record-breaking hat-trick by capitalizing on cut-backs from Carlos Soler and Bradley Barcola.
With eight Ligue 1 hat-tricks in the current century, Mbappe’s prowess surpasses any other player, having broken the tie with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who had seven. By showcasing his talents against his former club on Friday, Mbappe has the potential to extend PSG’s lead at the top of the table.
What to remember – PSG vs. Monaco
Given Ben Yedder’s challenges in maintaining his early-season form and uncertainties surrounding Balogun and Minamino’s late return to the Principality, Monaco might face another challenging and goalless away match on Friday.
While PSG’s midfield is somewhat depleted, and the champions have their own international break-related concerns, they have strengthened the Parc des Princes. With a professional performance, Les Parisiens are poised to extend their lead at the top of the table.
