Monaco haven’t had much joy against PSG in recent seasons. We know that there aren’t many teams in France that have but even in their title-winning campaign, Monaco were routinely battered by their richer counterparts. That was primarily because, in the second half of the season, they played second-string sides in domestic cups to save their strength for the league and Europe. It was a sacrifice worth making with Ligue 1 secured and a run to the Champions League semi-finals providing fans with memories that they will cherish for years to come.

Those memories are somewhat tainted by the aftermath of that campaign. The star of so many of those European fixtures was Kylian Mbappe and he now wears the shirt of PSG. With Neymar recovering from a fractured metatarsal, he’ll be the main man. Being the main man suited him well for France during the international break, he bagged two goals in a 3-1 win over Russia. Expect him to get on the scoresheet against his former side here.
