At the beginning of the season, PSG is demolishing everything in its path, and the question becomes more and more acute: can anyone give a battle to the reigning champions? In Round 4 of Ligue 1, the Parisians will face Monaco, the second most powerful club in the French elite.
Paris Saint-Germain: Unstoppable Offensive Super Trio
Paris Saint-Germain has scored 21 goals in four games, and none of their opponents have avoided a defeat. Christophe Galtier seems to have found the right way to use the Messi-Neymar-Mbappe super trio. So the team defends better as the strikers return to the defense more often. Neymar, in three rounds, gave just mind-boggling statistics: 5 goals and six assists. Messi has also transformed, and Mbappe recently made a hat-trick and moved into 2nd place in the scorers' race. Also, Achraf Hakimi performed well. The injuries of Draxler, Gueye, and Pembele do not hinder the Parisians: the depth of the squad is enough to compensate.
In the round before last against Montpellier, Christophe Galtier's charges did not demonstrate the brightest playing and often just took advantage of the opponent's mistakes, winning 5:2. Last week, Lille got under their rink, 7:1. PSG were skillful in combining, with Mbappe's goal in the eighth second when Messi cut off the defense with a single pass from the center of the pitch. Kylian scored three times, Neymar - two, and made three assists.Bet on H2 (+1.5) for 2.50 at Bet365
Monaco: a Weak Start as a Tradition
The start of the season for the Monegasques is a failure, with the team stalling at the beginning of the championship year after year. But the problems in the League 1 is half the trouble: Monaco also left the UCL, losing to PSV. Philippe Clément's side has earned four points, beating only Strasbourg (2:1). It is difficult to blame Aurélien Tchouaméni because the club has not had any more severe losses. In the summer, they invited Mohamed Camara, Breel Embolo, and Takumi Minamino. Embolo got a place in the starting lineup and has already scored his first goal. Minamino plays in the first minutes, while Camara starts the last game on the bench.
In the Ligue 1 round before last, Monaco looked decent and could even beat Rennes by ten men but, in the end, sealed a 1:1 draw. Philippe Clément's side didn't take many chances, while the opponents twice as often hit the goal but were less sharp in attack. After such a game, a 1:4 home defeat from Lens is shocking. The Monegasques could have scored twice or thrice, but the four goals conceded were expected, and it isn't easy to count on a win in such circumstances.
Monaco has taken 4 points from PSG in their last seven home games.
PSG has won 8 home matches out of ten.
Monaco has scored at least once in 11 away games.
PSG has won 8 of the last ten games by 3+ goals.
Expert Betting Tips
Monaco is not a comfortable opponent for PSG, and in the three seasons, the Parisians have lost at least once to them. The Monegasques looked more precise in the last encounter and snatched a blowout win. Paris Saint-Germain is difficult to stop now, but Montpellier, for all their problems, played decently and even found some vulnerabilities. Monaco knows how to convert chances, proven by the first three rounds. Because of the failures, the odds of the visitors' victory have dropped drastically. Bookmakers are waiting for almost another defeat. It should be used and bet against the favorite.
