Monaco is gradually getting back on track. They aren't yet in the running for the league title, after all, it is virtually unrealistic to contend with PSG at a distance, but they have won medals for the last two years in a row. There was nothing to be proud of at the end of last season, but the team started the campaign on a winning streak, with 28 points from 30 appearances in the previous ten rounds to ensure their third place.
PSV is one of the top clubs in the Netherlands, but they have been unable to reach the league title since the 2017/18 season. They finally put themselves in a real fight for first place with Ajax but still lost by two points. The team did well on the transfer market in the off-season, signing Guus Til, Xavi Simons, and Luuk de Jong. It seemed that it would be the last of them who would perform great in attack, but in their first official match, the Red and Whites beat the same Ajax side (5:3), with Til scoring a hat-trick and Simons scoring once more, but Jong was left without a goal.
Expert Betting Tips
Monaco and PSV approach the encounter a little differently. For the Monegasques, the upcoming game will be the first official match of the season, but they have already experienced the competition. They beat Ajax (5:3) in the Supercup of the Netherlands. This success not only allowed the Dutch to get into the rhythm of the game but also gave them confidence in their abilities, so the upcoming game gave them an excellent chance to achieve a good result. As a result, we suggest betting on PSV not to lose at odds of around 1.72.
Last season, Monaco scored 105 goals (2.76 on average per game) in 38 games. Moreover, in the previous five pre-season meetings in the summer, the bookmakers' total over of 80% has been reached four times. PSV is not worth mentioning too much. Look at how the side played in the Super Cup (5:3). On this basis, the best option for the prediction seems to be a total over 2.5 goals for 1.725.
If there are goals against Monaco and PSV, it will be challenging to stop the process, as both teams will want to attack at any opportunity. In this case, the Dutch club seems a little more ready at the moment. Nevertheless, it is worth looking at a bet on PSV's victory with a total over 3.5 goals at odds of around 8.9.
