MON Vs PSG Fantasy Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: AS Monaco look to test PSG’s bastion when the league leaders come calling this Saturday.
For all their aberrations when playing outside of the Ligue 1, PSG have as ever managed to maintain their dominance over the league. Despite being rattled by injuries, the club continues to keep torching its way towards the glistening title with 8 wins on the stretch taking to the top of the league.
As has become the ritual for PSG now, the club has traditionally once again emerged as outright favourites for the season’s title. The clear difference in quality between them and the rest of the league has been at show in the 2020-21 edition of the league as well with PSG not only winning their last five matches but also going onto concede just once in them.
Its this stern and stringent defensive setup which AS Monaca will be looking to test when the two sides faceoff against each other come today. On a two match winning spin, sixth placed AS Monaco face their most staunch test come today with PSG ruthlessly ripping sides into shreds.
Typical of AS Monaco, you just never know what to expect from the club. Whilst the team is capable of making life tricky for clubs with its attack, the defensive side of the game has often let the side down.
This jittery and unsure of itself backline will stand no chance against PSG with the backline seeing AS Monaco down the river.

MON Vs PSG Fantasy Team Picks
Vito Mannone from AS Monaco will be finding a place in our setup as the goal-keeper. Despite him coming across a barrage of shots as PSG pepper his goal, he’s bound to parry away a magnitude of those shots.
While PSG’s defensive setup often doesn’t earn the same accolades as the club’s attacking unit, the backline hasn’t gone unnoticed. The club’s defenders have won the adulation of the entire league, players who have seen the club keep four cleansheets in its last five fixtures.
The league’s finest defence, one which has conceded on a measly 3 occasions will feature heavily for us come today. We have all of Colin Dagba, Presnel Kimpembe and Mitchel Bakker be ingrained in our team from the club.
At a time when PSG found themselves riddled with injuries, Pablo Sarabia managed to fill the void. He has the most number of assists for the side at three, a figure which makes him a must have pick for us today.
Rafinha Alcantara will partner him up for the contest whilst the opposition will also see us rope in a duo of picks. The partnership comprises of both the attacking names with Gelson Martins and Sofiane Diop capable of moving in tandem and squaring the ball to their counterparts.
PSG’s top scorer with the 7 goals, Kylian Mbappe can easily end up adding to his tally come today. Neymar who has the three assists is increasingly looking likely to get the go ahead as he looks set to recover from time from his injury.
Kevin Volland meanwhile is our pick from AS Monaco with him having struck the two goals and two assists for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 7 goals and 4 assists, Mbappe will step in as our side’s while Neymar is the vice-captain.
