Free predictions and betting picks for Monaco vs PSG

Bookmaker Ratings prediction one: PSG to Win – 1.95

Bookmaker Ratings prediction two: Kylian Mbappe to Score Anytime – 2.05

PSG to Win

With Champions League distractions a thing of the past, PSG can put all of their focus on retaining the Ligue 1 title and a win at Monaco on Sunday would allow them to take a step closer to their crown. The Parisians were 2-0 winners against The Monégasques in December and they are a superb price to beat them again here.

Kylian Mbappe to Score Anytime

Kylian Mbappe came through the ranks at Monaco before signing for PSG in 2017 and he has been terrorising his former employers since. Mbappe has scored ten times against Monaco since 2019 and he notched both goals when PSG toppled them 2-0 in December.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Monaco vs PSG

With a whopping 15-point lead at the summit of Ligue 1, it’s only a matter of time before PSG are crowned French champions for the eighth time in ten seasons and Les Rouge-et-Bleu can strengthen their domestic stranglehold with a victory at Monaco on Sunday.

Expectations at PSG at huge and following their Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid, things are far from rosy in the Parisians’ garden however, and manager Mauricio Pochettino and star turn Kylian Mbappe are both expected to leave for pastures new this summer.

Their own supporters even booed their every touch in last weekend’s 3-0 win over Bordeaux due to their ire at the team’s failed continental exploits, though PSG’s ability to carve out a routine victory in the face of such abuse highlighted the match-winning credentials of their squad.

With Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi in attack, PSG have an abundance of word beaters in the final third and while that trio don’t work hard enough out of possession in the cut and thrust of the Champions League, their quality on the ball is usually sufficient to get PSG over the line in France.

Indeed, that was certainly the case when PSG beat Monaco 2-0 in December despite mustering fewer attempts than their opponents and the champions’ knack for producing magical moments should allow them to get the better over the side from the principality again on Sunday.

Monaco have won only one of their last eight matches in all competitions ahead of their tough test against Pochettino’s star-laden PSG and with their confidence low, they should offer little resistance to the champions-elect.

Safe Bets

Bettors on the lookout for a safe option on Sunday might find backing PSG to score in the second half a fitting choice at 1.53. PSG have notched more goals (34) after the interval than any other team in the French top tier this term and they have registered in the second period in seven of their last eight matches on the road.

Get Quick Rich

Monaco failed to score in each of their last two meetings with PSG, with the champions winning to nil on each occasion. Monaco have only notched twice in their last four fixtures combined and they look light on quality in the final third. With that considered, backing PSG to claim a clean sheet along with three points looks prime cut at 3.6.

Monaco vs PSG first goalscorer

You can’t look beyond Kylian Mbappe in any of the goalscoring markets whenever Monaco and PSG lock horns and the 23-year-old can be backed at 4.5 to grab the game’s first goal this weekend. Mbappe broke the deadlock when PSG beat Monaco in December and he opened the scoring in three of the last five duels between the clubs overall.

Monaco vs PSG Team News

Cesc Fabregas and Krepin Diatta are both out injured for Monaco this weekend. Aleksandr Golovin and Myron Boadu will both hope to make the XI.

Highlighted Player

Aurelien Tchouameni

Marauding midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni is expected to fly the nest when the campaign ends and the Monaco starlet should have his pick of where to play next from a long line of suitors.
