Paris Saint-Germain vs AS Monaco Preview

Paris Saint-Germain vs AS Monaco

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Parc des Princes

Date: 15th April 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

The City of Paris is prepared to crown PSG as winners after this game provided that they win so we expect the Champagne to be on ice as the game goes on.

A win here would make PSG winners of 5 of the last 6 French Ligue 1 titles and there is no bigger opponent than the current reigning champions, Monaco for this occasion.

Monaco will not want to be forced to watch as PSG are crowned champions and Leonardo Jardim’s men would want to avoid a defeat at all cost here.

PSG have collected 84 points and scored 96 goals already this season and it is safe to say the investment of the club’s owners has been handsomely rewarded even though they failed to progress in the Champions League.

They won all but five of their 31 league games, while maintaining a 100% home record in the league with 16 wins from the same amount of games at the Parc des Princes.

Monaco lost to PSG in the French Cup final just a couple of weeks back and that should still be fresh on their mind ahead of this game.

However, they have a good record at Paris as they are unbeaten in their last 8 visits to the Parc des Princes, winning two and drawing 6.   It will be interesting to see if they can delay the title celebrations here.

Monaco last lost a game in Paris 11 years ago, and they are unbeaten in their last seventeen games in Ligue 1 this season coming into this match.
