PSG vs Monaco Prediction & Match Preview

PSG vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st February 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).

All eyes will be on Parc des Princes when PSG and Monaco go head to head in the Ligue 1 derby on Matchday 26. 

Les Parisiens are on a three-game winning run in the Ligue 1, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play despite the fact that Neymar remains in the recovery room. 

In Neymar’s absence, a man to keep an eye in the home team will be Kylian Mbappe, who is likely to prove a handful for his former teammates.

Les Rouges et Blancs have been scoring goals for fun in the French top flight of late, meaning that a high-scoring affair is on the cards in the “City of Lights”. 

A man to watch in the away team will be Ben Yedder, who scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with Lorient at the weekend.

Team News:

Paris Saint-Germain continue to make do without Neymar and Di Maria, the former of whom is likely to remain sidelined for another few weeks, but Kean is in no danger of being dropped from the flanks, especially with Pablo Sarabia now ruled out of this clash.

The defensive duo of Colin Dagba and Juan Bernat both remain sidelined, but neither of them would have been expected to push for starting berths here, although Timothee Pembele is available again.

Aside from the potential inclusion of Ander Herrera from the first whistle, Pochettino will understandably keep changes to a minimum.

Monaco manager Kovac is also expected to keep faith with the majority of the team from the draw with Lorient, but he will hope to have the rejuvenated Aleksandr Golovin back after the playmaker missed out against Les Merlus with muscular discomfort.

Ruben Aguilar and Krepin Diatta will battle it out to feature on the right-hand side if Golovin is not risked, although the latter was taken off at half time last Sunday.

The introduction of Fabregas turned the game on its head in the reverse fixture, but the former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder is unlikely to be considered for a start here.

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:
Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Gueye, Paredes; Kean, Verratti, Mbappe; Icardi

Monaco possible starting lineup:
Lecomte; Sidibe, Maripan, Badiashile, Henrique; Golovin, Fofana, Tchouameni, Diop; Ben Yedder, Volland
