Monaco vs PSG, Ligue 1 2020-21, Match Preview  

Monaco will host reigning champions and high-flying Paris Saint-Germain in Friday's Ligue 1 2020-21 encounter. Both the sides are coming from victories against Nice and Rennes, respectively. 

Match Timing: Nov 21, 1:30 AM  

Team Preview 

After a poor show in the month of October, Monaco found their lucky time in November with two straight victories in Ligue 1. Les Monegasques thrashed Bordeaux 4-0 in the first game of this month, courtesy of Kevin Volland’s brace and double strikes from Yedder and Martins. Kovac's men edged past Nice in the next encounter 2-1 to make it two for two before the international break. Axel Disasi and Sofiane Diop netted the goals before Pierre Lees Melou’s late strike. Nice created opportunities to find the leveler, but Monaco held the game to walk away with three points. Kovac's men sit on 17 points after 10 matches, ahead of Montpellier and Nice with a goal difference of +3. 

Meanwhile, PSG are coming off a 3-0 victory against Rennes, despite Neymar and MBappe's absence. After a poor start to the season, PSG dominated Ligue 1 2020-21 in style and grabbed their top spot. Thomas Tuchel's men are 5-points ahead of second-placed Lille. The injuries and COVID cases are not stopping PSG. They have been outclassed by Man United and RB Leipzig in the Champions League, but the story in Ligue 1 is in their favour. They are unbeaten from their last eight matches in the French top flight. 

The German powerhouses will also face their two counterparts in Champions League in second-leg affairs. The winning run at domestic season can help PSG find the momentum to get back on track in the European competition. The French Champions have won 10 of their last 11 meetings with Monaco in all competitions. Neymar and MBappe both will be back in the lineup, so it would be a tough affair for Monaco. PSG have conceded just 3 goals this season and kept a clean-sheet in six matches.
