PSG v Monaco Preview, Ligue 1, Sunday 22nd August 2013

A very exciting game in prospect between two of the best sides in the French Ligue 1. Both have spent ridiculous amounts of money over the last couple of season’s to improve their squad with high profile world class individuals and with everything at stake on sunday night in Paris, we should be in for a cracker !

PSG will know defeat would put them 5pts behind their arch rivals, so this really is a must win game for manager Laurent Blanc and his side and confidence will be high through out the whole squad having won their last three matches on the bounce.

Monaco currently lead the way at the top of Ligue 1 table, but are only 2pts in front of their hosts and manager Claudio Ranieri and his side will desperately want to return home with at least a point from this game and that could be likely as Monaco and PSG are currently the only two sides in the league unbeaten so far this season.

PSG v Monaco Team News

PSG Team News:

No injuries or suspensions for manager Laurent Blanc to contend with so expect him to play his strongest starting eleven in a 4-3-3 formation with Ibrahimovic leading the attack up front supported by Lavezzi and Cavani.

Cavani is the current goalscorer for his club having scored two so far this season.

Monaco Team News:

The visitors will be without Striker Nacer Barazite as he continues recovery from a knee operation and Midfielder Nabir Dirar is also out as he continues to receive treatment for a cruciate ligament rupture. 4-2-3-1 will be the likely formation with Falcao leading the attack up front.

Emmanuel Rivière is the clubs leading goalscorer this season having scored five times.

Who Has The Advantage?

Sunday night’s game from the Parc de Princes Stadium in Paris will become the 37th meeting between the two clubs over the years. PSG have won 9, Monaco have won 17 and there has been 10 draws.

Recent results show Monaco having a slight advantage having won 2, with PSG managing just 1 victory and the remaining 2 games having finished all square.

Average Goals Per Game?

81 goals have been scored during the previous 36 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.25 which indicates that this game looks likely to see just one or two goals scored on sunday night.

PSG v Monaco Recent Form


Monaco: W W D W W

No side has any real advantage heading into this game on the recent form with both clubs having won 4 and drawn 1 of their previous 5 games played.

PSG v Monaco Match Betting Odds Market.

PSG are the clear favourites to win this game with the online bookmakers offering up a best price of 17/20 with Ladbrokes (£30 Free Bets for New Customers) for Laurent Blanc’s side to secure the all important 3pts.

The Draw should see plenty of interest from punters as with nothing to choose between them on the recent form and two of the previous five games having finished all square, the current odds of 5/2 from BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) do look appealing.

Monaco are the current league leaders and have remained unbeaten so far from their opening five games played so for me look overpriced at odds of 4/1 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers).

PSG v Monaco Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A really tough game to be confident in choosing a winner from as there are arguments to be made for both sides. PSG do have the all important home advantage, but that doesn’t seem to of helped them that much so far this season and if they were to fall behind to an early goal, their fans mood would quickly change.

The goal stats suggest this game to see very little in the way of goals, so the goals markets like Under 2.5, Both Teams to Score and Total Goals could offer some value, but I have to go with the visitors to get at least something from this game on sunday night as with a certain Mr Falcao leading the attack up front the PSG defence do look likely to concede at some point.
