MON Vs PSG Dream11 Team Match Report, Probable Playing 11 And Overview: The two sides clash heads for the side time in the space of a week.
When Monaco and PSG had gone at loggerheads in the previous gameweek, the tie dished out our way was far from what was envisioned. We were enthralled in a six goal thriller, an edge of the seat thriller which saw AS Monaco massively punch above their weight to come out with a 3-3 draw despite facing a deficit on multiple occasions.
It was a performance which could end up being a defining moment for this AS Monaco side, one which could serve as just the shot in the arm needed to revive what has been a harsh campaign for the side. The result meant that they are now unbeaten in their previous five matches, climbing all the way into 8th position, an unscathed spree of results they’ll be looking to keep intact as they take on PSG for the second time in succession.
Elsewhere, the table toppers will be treating this encounter as redemption for what was a horrid draw for the side. It once again brought to light issues which have been hidden due to the inferior quality of oppositions they play against weekly with AS Monaco showing this PSG outfit is more than capable of being battered and rattled.
PSG’s wavering defence was hit for three goals the last time around and with the side suffering a spate of injuries for today’s encounter, we envision AS Monaco once again thriving in attack. This will be yet another closely contested affair, one we see PSG just about scaring their way to a win to given the pool of attacking resources at their disposal.

- Willem Geubbels continues to remain the only injury concern for AS Monaco for the day.

MON Vs PSG Dream11 Goal-Keeper
While PSG ended up seeing their defensive solidarity vanish up in smoke the last time around as they were hit out of the park for 3, there’s no ignoring the fact that they continue to remain the best defence in the league. And they have had their shot stopper, Keylor Navas to massively thank for that resilience with the goal-keeper showing why he’s such a worldclass player to see us indulge in him for the day.
MON Vs PSG Dream11 Defenders
This looks unlikely to be a match where either side will keep a cleansheet to their name but despite this rhetoric, we are still moving in with the four defenders for the clash. All these players are capable of providing a goal or assist to their name with their affinity towards galloping down the park seeing us move in for them.
We begin with the picks from PSG with the electric and alluring duo of Presnel Kimpembe and Colin Dagba being picked up by us for the contest. Elsewhere, the opposition are represented by a duo as well in the form of Kamil Glik and Guillermo Maripan.
These are two players who’ll be persistently asked to involve themselves in the side’s corners and freekicks and given PSG’s vulnerabilities in these areas, this diminutive partnership can easily pull off a goal today.
MON Vs PSG Dream11 Midfielders
Gelson Martins scored for AS Monaco the last time these two sides met, taking his tally upto the 4 goals for his side this season to make him our first pick from the side for this forthcoming encounter. With the two assists, we have Cesc Fabregas being brought in as well along with Tiemoue Bakayoko, someone who was pivotal to refraining PSG from breaking down his side’s defence with a plethora of well cued blocks and tackles.
MON Vs PSG Dream11 Strikers
Neymar scored twice for PSG in the foregone conclusion, goals which saw hi rake up the 10 goals and 4 assists for his side this season to make him a must have player from the side. Kylian Mbappe has 10 goals and 4 assists this season for PSG, numbers which allude to how he’s left defences his disarray to see him being brought in as well from the side.
Elsewhere, with a goal the last time around, Wissam Ben Yedder took his tally upto 14 goals this season to further consolidate his spot as AS Monaco’s leading goal scorer to see him become our culminating pick.
