Monaco once again didn’t start the season very well. Right now the former champions are 13th in the standings with 18. Their situation was even worse, but winning three of their last five matches in the league helped them to improve their position.
In the previous round Monaco lost again, though. Les Monegasques visited Bordeaux and suffered a 1-2 loss. Islam Slimani opened the score for Monaco after an assist from Wissam Ben Yedder, but in the second half he recieved a red card and left his team with 10 men on the pitch.
Pablo equalised for Bordeaux in the 29th minute, while Nicolas de Preville from a penalty kick secured the win for the hosts.
In this game Monaco’s manager Leonardo Jardim left the Spanish ace Cesc Fabregas on the bench, not using him at all.
PSG are leaders of the Ligue 1 with 33 points and 5 points advantage in front of the second Olympique Marseille. In their last five matches the champions won four times, only making a mistake during their defeat against Dijon.
During the week PSG had an exciting clash against Real Madrid in the Champions League. The Parisians travelled to the Santiago Bernabeu and officially won their group after a 2-2 draw. Until the 81th minute Los Blancos had a clear two goals lead, but between the 81th and the 83th minute PSG equalised. Kylian Mbappe and Pablo Sarabia scored for the visitors, while Neymar returned on pitch after his recovery from an injury.
In our football betting tips for the weekend we can tell you that we consider PSG most likely to win on Sunday. Monaco are struggling in the Ligue 1, while PSG will be in high mood after winning their Champions League group. Plus they have Neymar back, which is great news.
