Monaco vs PSG
Date: 26th November 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
France’s top two sides are about to lock horns on Sunday evening when the runaway leaders will have the chance to increase the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 standings even more and kill the excitement ahead of the rest of the season.
Monaco will enter the derby low on confidence after suffering an embarrassing 1-4 defeat to German runners-up RB Leipzig in the Champions League farewell to the fans at Stade Louis II.
The reigning Ligue 1 champions have also slipped up last Friday when they failed to beat the newly-promoted Amiens SC side on the road (1-1) draw letting the Parisians escape to a six-point advantage at the very top of the standings.
The only good news for the Portuguese manager Leonardo Jardim is the return of his star man up front Radamel Falcao who bagged the consolation goal in the mentioned loss to the Bulls.
It has indeed been a fairytale campaign for Unai Emery and his men so far in both Ligue 1 and Champions League.
The Parisians just don’t have mercy and they seem to be in a tremendous run of form as of late, having netted at least four goals in each of their last four outings in all competitions.
Former Barcelona’s star Neymar Jr was particularly inspired in the 7-1 thumping of Celtic on Wednesday netting a brace against the Scottish champions.
Monaco vs PSG: Head to head
Monaco lead the overall head to head tie by five wins, but it’s PSG who have entirely dominated this match-up in the most recent history.
The Parisians have won each of their last three meetings with Monaco, including both Coupe de la Ligue semis and Coupe de France finals as well as the Super Cup final before the start of the season.
