After losing to PSV Eindhoven in the third qualifying round of the Champions League, Monaco will compete in the Europa League this year. The two teams played a 1-1 draw in the first leg on August 2 before PSV prevailed 3-2 in overtime in the second leg, which was played in Eindhoven seven days later.
The principality team has been playing since the second leg with PSV, sharing a 1-1 draw with Rennes on Saturday. Before that, they had defeated Strasbourg 2-1 in their opening match of the new Ligue 1 season. Last weekend, Monaco and Rennes played at Stade Louis II, and Monaco was down until Breel Embolo scored in the 72nd minute to tie the score.
Last season, Philippe Clement’s team finished third in Ligue 1, just two points behind second-placed Marseille. They were so close to securing a spot in the group stage that their league position failing to qualify for the Champions League is even harder to accept.
With one league game remaining before the month is out, Monaco, now fifth in the Ligue 1 standings with four points, will travel to face champions Paris Saint-Germain on August 28.
Mauricio Pochettino spent his whole tenure at Tottenham Hotspur without winning a prized trophy. Still, given the moves PSG has made in the transfer market, the Argentine can be excused for hoping for a first full season as manager of the Parisiens that is replete with trophies.
Remember that it only took Pochettino less than a fortnight to win the coveted first trophy of his managerial career, which he did in January 2021, when his team defeated Marseille 2-1 in the most recent Trophee des Champions, a match that had been postponed for the winter due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Pochettino won’t need to be reminded, though, that his attempts to bring Champions League glory to Parc des Princes finally failed and that a second-place result in the French premier division would not have satisfied the constantly demanding Parisiens board either.
Despite a mixed first season in which PSG’s only real saving grace was the Coupe de France, Pochettino wasted no time in reshaping the team to fit his vision, shocking the market by bringing in Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, and Georginio Wijnaldum, all of whom were available for free.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Monaco Team News
- Paris Saint-Germain
Since Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes, and Neymar, the team’s South American contingent, are still recuperating from their Copa America accomplishments, PSG will have to make do without numerous first-team absences here.
Winners of Euro 2020 Donnarumma and Marco Verratti, as well as Pablo Sarabia of Spain, are taking additional time off. However, Kylian Mbappe, Presnel Kimpembe, Danilo Pereira, and Wijnaldum may travel.
Ramos, Colin Dagba, Rafinha, and long-term absentee Juan Bernat are just a few of PSG’s injured players. Their absence will further limit Pochettino’s options; instead, he should put his countryman Mauro Icardi in charge of the line.
- Monaco FC
Due to the red card the midfielder received in the 1-1 draw with Rennes last time out, Monaco will be without Youssouf Fofana on Saturday; therefore, 18-year-old Soungoutou Magassa could start.
Additionally absent from this team due to injuries are Ruben Aguilar, Allan Okou, Willem Geubbels, and Myron Boadu.
Malang Sarr, who recently joined the team on loan from Chelsea, might play in the middle of the defense, but changes to the attack are doubtful because Embolo is once again expected to team up with Wissam Ben Yedder in a front two.
