Monaco is the only team that managed to interrupt PSG’s domination in the French Ligue One. This was once a great derby, but at the moment, apart from the great history, it is just another match for the Parisian crew. In the most recent times, we’ve seen several humiliating results for the team from Monte Carlo when meeting PSG, as champs showed no mercy towards the big rivals. One more information, three days later, the teams will meet once again in a delayed match of Week 15, only that contest will take place in Monte Carlo.

Preview

Right now, PSG is confidently topping the Ligue One table with seven points more than the second-placed Marseille. The Saints are without a loss for 12 straight games in all the competitions, and in the past eight, they’ve recorded wins. When it comes to efficiency, we will try to explain how things work in Paris right now. PSG is on a streak of six games in which they’ve scored four or more goals. During that stretch, this team posted 29 hits, allowing just three. So, we are hoping that you realize that we might be dealing here with the most lethal attack in the world. Icardi, Mbappe, Neymar and the rest of the guys behind him are really on a rampage this season. But, there is even more. When looking just at the Ligue One games played at Parc des Princes we see that in the previous five, Tuchel’s crew allowed only one goal, and on the other side scored 16. All in all, they are perfect in the domestic championship, and to be honest, they were in the Champions League when needed up to this point.

Monaco opened the season poorly, and it is something that happened for the second straight season. In the first six rounds, Leonardo Jardim’s team earned just three points, but as time went by, they managed to find some rhythm and rose all the way to place No.7. Right now, Monaco is five points away from the Champions League spot. When looking at the names on the roster, this squad should be there, but the lack of chemistry or something else, was preventing them from reaching up to the potential. They have one loss and draw apiece over the last six league contests, and what is more important, Monegasques allowed just one goal in the previous three events of that stretch.

Head to head matches

As we said, there have been some serious humiliations for Monaco in head to head games recently. Aside from the fact that they lost nine matches in a row, they scored just twice in the previous five trips to Paris. On the other hand, PSG yielded 22 hits. Each time they played in the capital of France, Monaco went back home annihilated. In April 2018, it was 7-1, four months later, 4-0, in April this year, 3-1. It seems that the Saints are really getting after this rival for taking them the title in 2017.

Prediction

When you see how PSG plays, it would be ludacris to bet against them. They are probably one of the top favorites for winning the Champions League right now, let alone the French championship. The odds on their win are too low, but we know what might be a good bet for this match. If you want an extra safe tip, go with Asian handicap -1.5 on PSG’s win. The odds at BetXChange are 0.55. We have another proposition, a bit riskier though – PSG over 1.5 HT, with splendid odds at 1.26.
