Monaco vs PSG Match Analysis & Prediction
11/02/2023 7:00 pm
Paris Saint-Germain faces another tough test of their Ligue 1 title credentials away to Monaco at the Stade Louis II on Saturday afternoon. Les Parisiens lost 2-1 to Marseille in their last-16 cup battle on Wednesday night, while Philippe Clement’s side eased past the threat of Clermont 2-0 last weekend.
Since the World Cup break, Monaco has been steadily climbing in the Ligue 1 table with aplomb.
Their most recent victory came against Clermont when a Breel Embolo goal followed Guillermo Maripan’s early header after an Aleksandr Golovin assist.
Since dropping three points against Marseille before the tournament, Les Monegasques have strung together seven league games without defeat and now sit fourth in the standings.
Only two points behind Lens and Marseille– both struggling in Europe–Monaco is well-positioned to reclaim their place among France’s elite clubs this season.
Despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Marseille in their Coupe de France last-16 tie, PSG progressed thanks to goals from Sergio Ramos and Igor Tudor’s side.
With Lionel Messi and Achraf Hakimi struggling for form, the pair of star players could not impact the match.
However, the Spanish defender did manage to head home a late equalizer before Ruslan Malinovskyi restored Marseille’s lead with his 57th-minute strike.

Due to injuries, Monaco are missing two key players, Vanderson and Malang Sarr. However, the team still has several strong players and should not change the lineup that won against Caen last weekend. Captain Wissam Ben Yedder will likely challenge Takumi Minamino for his starting spot in attack alongside Breel Embolo.

Meanwhile, PSG was boosted by the returns of Neymar and Ramos from their groin problems for the clash with Marseille.
