Paris Saint-Germain hosts Monaco in round 26 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Sunday, February 21st at Parc des Princes (Paris)
The Parisian grandee changed horses in the midstream, inviting Mauricio Pochettino to the coaching bridge. The Argentinean specialist enthusiastically took on a promising project with high financial capabilities. The reason for the change of coach was the team's unsatisfactory results in the local arena. PSG is now sharing the top spot with Lyon and Lille, which are holding a competitive championship. Now the metropolitan club has difficulties with injuries of leading players (Bernat, Neymar, and Di Maria). Even without these significant performers, PSG has someone to bring results. Mbappé, Icardi, Verratti, Marquinhos, and Sarabia are in great shape. Beyond that, Pochettino does not hesitate to include young talents in the roster (Simons, Mishut, Ruiz-Atil, and Pembelier).

Monaco occupies an intermediate 4th place in the standings, and it is serious progress against the backdrop of several failed seasons in the local arena. Monaco's game was transformed with the arrival of Niko Kovacs on the coaching bridge. The Croatian mentor quickly adjusted the actions of his charges in defense and increased the effectiveness of the attacking line. The Monegasques were going on a streak of seven wins in a row but tied with Lorient in the last round (2:2). Nevertheless, they gained 49 points in 25 rounds. A whole generation of new stars has grown up in the team, and it is worth singling out Badiashile, Disasi, Diop, Pellegri, Tchouameni, Fofana, and Diatta (moved from Brugge this winter). More experienced Golovin, Ben Yedder, Lecomte, Volland, Gelson Martins, and Maripan are in good shape.
In the first round, the teams arranged a shootout and scored five goals for two (the Monegasques won 3:2). Now Paris Saint-Germain is a clear favorite, as it gained fantastic shape. However, we will not look for a winner and will recommend you betting on high scoring.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
