PSG vs Monaco: The Ligue 1 match between PSG and Monaco is taking place on Monday, December 13 at 1:30 AM Nepali time.
Paris Saint-Germain welcomes Monaco to the Parc des Princes on Sunday night-morning, hoping to avoid a third game without a win in Ligue 1.
After 17 games, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are 11 points clear at the top of the table, while Les Monegasques are six places and 16 points lower. PSG vs Monaco
Keylor Navas produced a string of fine saves against Lens before letting Seko Fofana’s speculative effort slip through his grasp last weekend, giving Gianluigi Donnarumma a vital edge in the PSG goalkeeping battle.
PSG restored parity thanks to Georginio Wijnaldum in the second minute of second-half injury time, but another stalemate raised questions about Pochettino’s tactical nous after his side responded perfectly to such claims in midweek.
Indeed, Lionel Messi’s brace and Kylian Mbappe‘s brace helped PSG finish their Champions League Group A campaign with a 4-1 victory over Club Brugge, with the latter becoming the youngest player in Champions League history to reach 30 goals. PSG vs Monaco
However, two consecutive Ligue 1 stalemates have reduced PSG’s lead to 11 points over second-placed Rennes – while Marseille is 13 points behind with a game in hand – but the league leaders welcome Monaco to their headquarters on an eight-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1.
The 0-0 draw with Nice on December 1 ended Les Parisiens’ 10-game winning streak at home in Ligue 1, but a tired Monaco team isn’t exactly a force to be reckoned with on the road, continentally or domestically.
Monaco did not join PSG in midweek Champions League action due to their early exit from Europe’s top table in the summer, but their top spot in Europa League Group B was already secured before their trip to Sturm Graz.
Niko Kovac understandably shuffled the pack for the game, but Monaco would have been disappointed not to take all three points, as Kevin Volland canceled out Jakob Jantscher’s penalty in a 1-1 tie.
However, things appear to be turning around for Les Monegasques in Ligue 1, as they travel to the Parc des Princes on the heels of consecutive wins over Angers and Metz, scoring seven goals and conceding just one.
Monaco is unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions, sitting seventh in Ligue 1 – just three points behind third-placed Marseille – but inconsistency has plagued them away from home.
Indeed, Kovac’s men have won just three of their eight Ligue 1 away matches this season, but they did the double over PSG in Ligue 1 last season before falling to Pochettino’s side 2-0 in the Coupe de France final in May.
