  • Competition: Ligue 1
  • Date: Friday, 1st March 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
  • Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)

Last year, Monaco blew the opportunity to secure Europe as they lost the last three games and eventually failed to secure it only by two points. This year, the Red and Whites started the season great in the Ligue 1 and held the first place after the first nine rounds. But since then, they were inconsistent and are now 3rd, already 13 points behind the best team in France and their next opponent, PSG. Also, they were knocked out of the Cup by Rouen, a National division team, and since the Ligue 1 title is pretty distant, their goal has to be a top-three finish in order to secure the Champions League appearance next season.

PSG have been a dominant force in France, securing the title in nine of the previous eleven seasons. The Parisians are playing another great season and are the clear-cut favorite in the domestic competitions. However, their main goal is to finally secure the Champions League title, and for now, things are going according to plan as they won the first leg game vs Real Sociedad by 2:0 in the 1/8 Finals. But in France, they are undoubtedly the best team in the country. 

Monaco vs PSG pick: PSG to win

Monaco are in poor form, winning just twice in the last six games. Those wins came against good teams, Lens and Nice, but we cannot say they were too impressive, and we doubt those types of performances are good enough to secure positive results against the best team in France. At home, they were especially bad, winning only one point in four matches, and we cannot say they had a tough schedule. 

PSG are once again the best team in France, no doubt about it. They won 16 of 23 Ligue 1 games - 70%, and interestingly, their winning percentage is better on the road than at home. Lately, PSG have been superb on the road, winning five in a row while scoring at least two goals every time. 

In the first h2h game this season, at Parc des Princes, PSG dismantled Monaco, winning 5:2. This time, at Stade Louis II in Monaco, we expect a much closer match, but once again, a win for the Parisians.

Monaco team news

Thilo Kehrer served his one-game suspension in the previous game vs Lens and will be available. The 27-year-old defender arrived from West Ham in the Winter transfer window and quickly became an important part of the starting eleven because some players were injured and some were in the AFCON. On the other hand, a key midfielder, Denis Zakaria, will be suspended due to the accumulation of yellow cards. 

The players who missed the previous games will remain sidelined with injuries: Mohamed Camara, Ismail Jakobs, Vanderson, Krepin Diatta, and Breel Embolo.

PSG team news

The team should have no new injuries, but the ones who missed the previous games should remain sidelined: Presnel Kimpembe, Layvin Kurzawa, Sergio Rico, and Milan Skriniar. At the same time, Marquinhos missed the previous game vs Rennes with a calf injury and is questionable for the upcoming game. Considering PSG have a big game in the Champions League after Monaco's game, he will most likely remain sidelined.

In recent days, it became evident that Kylian Mbappe will not extend his contract with PSG. So, because of it, coach Luis Enrique benched him vs Nantes and subbed him vs Rennes. The coach explained his decision by saying that they have to get used to playing without their star player.
