PSG – Champions in formidable form early doors?

Ligue 1 holders PSG have begun the campaign in ominous form. Even at this early juncture, after only three rounds of fixtures, the gulf from Christophe Galtier’s charges and those of his managerial counterparts feels enormous. This was laid bare following last week’s 7-1 dismantling of Lille – the only club in the past five seasons that wasn’t PSG to win the league – at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in northern France.

That frightening attacking triumvirate of Neymar, Messi and Mbappe has been devastating, combining for 12 goals in helping the Parisians forge a perfect record thus far of three wins. They’ve already scored 17 – more than five per game on average, and only three fewer than the teams in second, third and fourth have so far managed between them. The gulf is huge, and on this early evidence only getting bigger.

Key Stat: No team-mate has been involved in more Ligue 1 goals in 2022-23 than the 11 of Neymar (5 goals, 6 assists), the Brazilian both scoring and assisting in two of the opening three league games.

Monaco – Principality side can rise to the occasion in Paris?

Having witnessed Lille being destroyed at the hands of Paris’ finest, what hope is there of Monaco, one of only two clubs to lift the Ligue 1 trophy that wasn’t PSG in the past ten seasons, coming away from the Parc des Princes on Sunday unscathed. Well, more than one might come to expect? Les Monegasques were one of four sides to defeat them in Ligue 1 last season, and among the most recent to do so in Paris.

Monaco prevailed 2-0 in this fixture two seasons prior, emerging with a first win in the capital since 2016 in spite of lowly possession (25%) and shooting (5) figures. Almost certainly a similar backs-to-the-wall effort is called for when Philppe Clement sends his team, which has made a less than inspiring start to the new term (W1-D1-L1, GF4 GA6), into the most daunting of assignments on the French football calendar.

Key Stat: Monaco would score but also concede in all three Ligue 1 matches so far this season. This has been true of their last six league games going back into last season.

Paris Saint-Germain Vs Monaco Betting Advice

Ordinarily, this would count among PSG’s more trickier contests in Paris. However I am not entirely sure that is the case this weekend – and bookmakers are clearly in agreement by pricing the Parisians up as short as 1/5 for three points. Whereas Christophe Galtier has his team purring from the get-go, Monaco have made a stuttering start in the league (W1 D1 L1) are already out of the Champions League.


Paris Saint-Germain vs Monaco – Key Facts:

  • The sides exchanged ‘to nil’ home wins in 2021-22, with PSG running out 2-0 victors in Paris but succumbing 3-0 in the Principality at Stade Louis II.
  • PSG boast the only flawless record after three rounds, scoring 17 in wins against Clermont, Montpellier and Lille. Neymar has featured prominently so far, involved in 11 of those goals (5 goals, 6 assists).
  • Monaco have made a mixed start in Ligue 1. They’re W1-D1-L1 after the first three rounds. Which, against the backdrop of Champions League elimination to PSV Eindhoven, constitutes as a hugely underwhelming first few weeks.


PSG are just 6/5 to win without a clean sheet. However it is a bet which makes plenty of appeal. PSG, for all their brilliance going forward, were breached in two of three Ligue 1 outings. Meanwhile all five of Monaco’s competitive fixtures this season, and the last six in Ligue 1, featured both teams on the scoresheet. Or simply back Neymar adding to his six Ligue 1 assists in 2022-23, at the generous price of 13/10!
