Monaco vs PSG Match Preview
It is the biggest match of the season in Ligue 1 AS Monaco take on Paris Saint-Germain with the onus on the hosts to keep pace with the table-toppers. This Monaco vs Paris Saint-Germain fixture is scheduled for Sunday, November 26 at the Stade Louis II stadium, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
This season, Monaco looked a far cry from the team that won the 2016-17 title. That was meant to be, as they went on a selling spree in the summer, that disintegrated the fabric of their team. After 13 games, Monaco are second in the Ligue 1 table (29 pts, W9, D2, L2) which puts them six points behind the leaders PSG. Mind you, they still have a very talented squad that is led by the goal-scoring prowess of Radamel Falcao. The Colombian hitman has carried the side on his shoulders by scoring 13 goals in the campaign already. Only Edinson Cavani (15 from 12 games) is ahead of him. But, their ability to stretch PSG is a doubt after a 1-1 draw at Amiens last weekend and a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
PSG are flying, not just in Ligue 1, but also in the Champions League. Having added Neymar and Kylian Mbappe (on loan from Monaco) to their roster, the Parisians look domineering every time they come on to the pitch. The 7-1 midweek thrashing of Celtic in the Champions League had everyone purring about their European chances while their machine chugs along domestically. They are top of the table (35 pts, W11, D2, L0) with a comfortable six-point margin from Monaco which looks good to increase after this Monaco vs Paris Saint-Germain fixture. Anything less than a win will be seen as a blow to their reputation.

Monaco vs Paris Saint-Germain Predictions
Can someone stop the goal machines of PSG? There is a certain section in France that thinks that PSG will go the entire season undefeated. The troika of Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe is so threatening that you feel there are goals every time they get the ball. Backing them to score more than two goals in the game looks like a good betting tip. There could be goals at both ends too, as Monaco look confident of finding the back of the net.
