Team News: PSG
We think that Les Rouge-et-Bleu may well opt for a 4-4-2 system this time, utilising Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Danilo Pereira, Milan Skriniar, Lucas Hernandez, Ousmane Dembele, Vitinha, Manuel Ugarte, Kang-In Lee, Goncalo Ramos and Kylian Mbappe.
Team News: Monaco
Monaco boss Adi Hütter has multiple availability issues to deal with. Eliesse Ben Seghir (Shoulder injury), Caio Henrique (Cruciate ligament tear), Mohammed Salisu (Thigh problems) and Breel Embolo (Cruciate ligament tear) can’t be considered.
We’re of the thinking that Les Rouge et Blanc seem most likely to elect for a 3-4-3 formation, starting Philipp Koehn, Wilfried Singo, Guillermo Maripan, Soungoutou Magassa, Krepin Diatta, Denis Zakaria, Mohamed Camara, Ismail Jakobs, Takumi Minamino, Wissam Ben Yedder and Aleksandr Golovin.
We’ve got the feeling that Monaco have the capability to breach the defence of this Paris Saint-Germain team, but it isn’t expected to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re going for a 2-1 advantage for Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this one. Could easily see this go either way.
