Monaco vs PSG – between demolition and derby
The match Monaco vs PSG is always one of the highlights of each Ligue 1 season. While PSG is undoubtedly the strongest French club team at the moment (winning five of the last six Ligue 1 titles), Monaco is the only club that managed to break Paris’ title streak in 2017.
But the lustre of the Monaco team of 2017 is vanished. Manager Leonardo Jardim got fired after this year’s bad start (only 1 win in the first 13 competitive matches) and Monacos then top players either followed the calls of bigger clubs (Fabinho, Bernardo Silva, Thomas Lemar, Benjamin Mendy) or feel the ravages of time (Falcao, Kamil Glik). But the player, whose loss probably hurts the most, is Kylian Mbappé. The French wonderkid (and World Cup champion by now) left the Côte d’Azur for about 160 million pounds (180 million Euro) to join the most ambitious and richest club in whole France: Paris St. Germain.
There Mbappé continued his rise to one of the most spectactular and famous players in the world. So far he can already call himself World Cup champion, Best Young Player of that World Cup, Golden Boy and 2 times French champion. And all that by the age of 19. No wonder people used to compare him to the legendary Thierry Henry.
Speaking of Thierry Henry, the Arsenal legend is back where his peerless career once began: in Monaco. After Jardim’s dismissal in the middle of October Henry followed him as manager of the young Monaco team. With the help of World Cup high flyer Aleksandr Golovin and Belgian rough diamond Youri Tielemans, Henry will look to lead Monaco out off the crisis as soon as possible. Will this mission get a boost with a win against PSG?
It’s possible, yet all statistics and the current form speak in favour of PSG. The Parisians dominate the Ligue 1 as they wish once again and won all of their last seven matches against Monaco with an astonishing goal difference of 27:4. However, Monaco vs PSG is always good for a surprise. Find out how the match turns out on November 11, 20:00 UTC (21:00 CET).
