Monaco sit in eighth place on 41 points, having scored 40 goals and conceded 30. With 10 matches left, les Rouge et Blanc trail fifth-placed Strasbourg by six points for a spot in the Conference League Qualifiers. Last time out, Monaco were defeated 1-0 in their Ligue 1 meeting at Stade de la Meinau against Strasbourg. Wissam Ben Yedder has been nothing short of influential for Monaco this season. He is the side’s top scorer with 15 goals, which is the second highest in the competition. At Stade Louis II this season, Monaco have seven wins, four draws, and three losses across 14 Ligue 1 games. In their last six league matches, Monaco have won two, drawn two and lost two.
Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain are in the luxurious position of holding a 15 point advantage going into their Sunday contest at Stade Louis II against Monaco, who sit in mid-table heading into the match. This marks the third biggest gap between the top two at this stage under the three points for a win era behind themselves in 2015/16 (23) and 2018/19 (20). PSG earned a 3-0 victory over Bordeaux at home in their most recent league match. Kylian Mbappé has been their ‘MVP’ this season having bagged 16 goals this season, including six match-opening goals. He has found the net more than any other player in the competition in 2021/22. PSG have seven wins, four draws, and three losses on the road this season in league matches and they come into this weekend’s clash on the back of four wins and two defeats in their last six league outings.

Monaco vs PSG: Match Stats
Monaco are the side that have won the most games against PSG in Ligue 1 (43 from 91 played), winning two of the most recent three which includes one loss. That being said, Monaco have won only one of their last five games in Ligue, after winning five of their previous eight. Though at home they’ve only suffered one loss across their last 11 played this season, but that came last time out against Reims (1-2). There’s concerns surrounding Kevin Volland who has failed to be involved in a goal in his last eight Ligue 1 games, he’s never gone nine league games without a goal involvement. On top of that, Volland is the striker who has played the most minutes without scoring a goal or providing an assist in Ligue 1 in 2022 (549 minutes).
Heading into this weekend’s showdown in the principality, PSG have won just three of their last 10 Ligue 1 away games, losing their most recent two on the road, a first in a single season since April 2019 (3). Monaco should be wary from long distance as the Parisians are the side that have scored the most goals from outside the box in Ligue 1 this season (9). Their main man Mbappe has scored nine goals in eight games against Monaco in Ligue 1, scoring more only against Dijon (11). He’s also netted PSG’s last five goals against Monaco in the top-flight.
