Monaco vs Paris Saint Germain: Match Preview & Prediction

Team News

  • Djibril Sidibé and Thomas Lemar remain doubts through injury, and look to be joined by Stevan Jovetic.
  • Almamy Touré seems to have lost the trust of Leonardo Jardim this season, but could be given a chance here.
  • If Jardim opts to match PSG’s 4-3-3 system with his own, Rachid Ghezzal should be preferred to Rony Lopes owing to his success in that system at Lyon.
Paris Saint Germain
  • Yuri Berchiche and Thomas Meunier should come back into defence, per Unai Emery’s habit of rotating his full-backs.
  • Javier Pastore could start in central midfield, with Julian Draxler also an option.
  • Kylian Mbappé didn’t make an appearance in the win over Nantes, but should start here after scoring in midweek.
