Paris Saint-Germain play AS Monaco in the Ligue 1 2022-23 at Parc des Princes in Paris on Monday, August 29. The match will start at 12:15 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Paris Saint-Germain have been on a roll at the start of the new Ligue 1 campaign, aggregating 17-3 over their three wins in three matches. The attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have netted 12 of the 17 goals. PSG also lifted the Trophee des Champions after a 4-0 win against FC Nantes. The Parisians won the Ligue 1 title last season by a 15-point margin while scoring the most number of goals in the league.
On the other hand, AS Monaco come into this match on the back of two disappointing results at home in Ligue 1, a draw against Stade Rennais and a defeat against RC Lens. Monaco failed to qualify for this season’s UEFA Champions League after an unsuccessful qualifying campaign. Takumi Minamino signed for the club in the summer transfer window to bolster the attack.
