AS Monaco vs Paris Saint-Germain: Paris Saint-Germain Aim to Clinch Another Ligue 1 Title as Monaco Battles for a Champions League Spot
Following a disappointing exit in the Coupe De France, PSG sets its sights on the Ligue 1 title as they take on Monaco. The French champions are determined to reclaim their dominance in the league after a shaky start to the year.
AS Monaco, on the other hand, has been a force to be reckoned with, going unbeaten in their last seven Ligue 1 matches and positioning themselves in the top 4. A victory against the league leaders would solidify their bid for a Champions League spot and put them on equal footing with Lens and Marseille.
PSG currently sits at the top of the league with a comfortable 8-point lead over second-placed Olympique Marseille. However, with the upcoming Champions League match against Bayern Munich, coach Christophe Galtier will look to address any issues within the team before the crucial match.
The absence of star player Kylian Mbappe due to injury adds extra pressure to Galtier as he seeks a replacement to lead his attacking front. Unfortunately, PSG’s past two encounters with Monaco have resulted in dropped points, with a 1-1 draw at the Parc des Princes earlier this season and a 3-0 defeat at Stade Louis II on their last visit.
