Monaco Preview – Principality side can remain unbeaten at home?

Consistency hasn’t necessarily been Monaco’s strong point this season, which is understandable – in Niko Kovac they possess a bright coach who was always likely to require a degree of patience to impose his ideas and values on a side languishing in mid-table when the 2019/20 Ligue 1 term was curtailed in March. On that basis, to hold fifth place in the current standings has to represent early progression.

The team really did pick up the pace, though, immediately prior to the recent international break, putting a three-game barren spell to bed with impressive 4-1 and 1-2 victories over Bordeaux and Nice respectively. Monaco have now notched 17 goals in ten league outings, only Champions League aspirants Rennes and PSG plundering more, with the bulk of them (12) scored at home.

Unsurprisingly, Wissam Ben Yedder has again led the goalscoring charge, as was the case last term when, alongside Kylian Mbappe, he finished top of the Ligue 1 scoring chart on 18. The diminutive striker has six for the season, with four coming from his last three home appearances, helping to preserve Monaco’s unbeaten start to the season on home soil having won three of their five outings at Stade Louis II.

PSG Preview – Tuchel sweating over forward duo?

Following a slow start, owing to a shorter pre-season as several first-team members sat out their early fixtures, it has well and truly been a case of business as casual from a PSG perspective. To emphasise that point, they have registered eight consecutive Ligue 1 victories since defeats to Lens and Marseille, scoring 26 for the loss of a single goal – a consolation for Angers in their 6-1 Parc des Princes thrashing.

Away from Paris, Thomas Tuchel’s side have won four straight, doing so without ever really breaking a sweat against Nantes (0-3), Nice (0-3), Nimes (0-4) and Reims (0-2). The aggregate score from those fixtures: 12-0. Les Parisiens last shipping a goal on their travels in their opening fixture away to newly-promoted Lens. All this whilst nursing an increasing number of injuries to key personnel.

PSG may have went into the break in exceptional form therefore, but were no doubt anxious regarding the fitness of star forwards Neymar and Mbappe. Fortunately, neither player represented their country, heightening the prospects of a return to competitive action for the duo. The latter, in particular, has been in red hot form in 2020/21, contributing towards more goals (7 goals & 4 assists) than any Ligue 1 player.
