Team News: PSG
Ángel Di María (Thigh Problems), Neymar (Adductor problems) and Juan Bernat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Team News: Monaco
Due to a mostly available group, there is only the sole fitness issue for the Monaco manager Niko Kovač to be concerned with. Gelson Martins (Knee Surgery) won’t be in action.
It certainly seems that Monaco could really find it hard to find the net against a PSG outfit who should be able to really run this game.
We think that it’s going to be a convincing 3-0 winning margin for PSG after 90 minutes.
