“It will be a tough game,” the French strategist said of Sunday’s visitors. “Monaco is a good team in Ligue 1, contenders for the title and Champions League places. They are coming off a loss to Lens, but Paris lost at the Stade Louis II last season. We shouldn’t just look at the victory in Lille, or even Monaco’s performance against Lens: every match is different and it will be a clash between two good teams.
“The calendar is going to be very busy, seven games in 21 days. We will have to be competitive, take care of the body and recover. We are working hard with our performance and medical departments. It is now that the team must to show its value, with the series of matches. We have big games ahead of us in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.

The objectives are very ambitious, I have a quality squad, everyone must be ready, it is essential that the players come out during the game, to maintain a general level of freshness and clarity. throughout the matches. There’s an international break afterwards, so there’s little rest on the horizon. This rotation process will start on Sunday against Monaco.”

“AS Monaco is also a good team,” the Brazilian international said on Friday. “A very good team with good players, so there will be qualities on the other side, with a team that is also well managed.

“There is no need to be afraid before the match,” the French defender said before the match. “It is true that Paris have started the season well, putting up impressive performances. They play more as a team and the three forwards are doing a lot of defensive work. We will have to be very focused and raise the level on the pitch. there is nothing to fear as we got a result against them last season (3-0 at the Stade Louis-II).
“We will have to play our style of football. I know we can be strong collectively. If we all work for everyone, we can do something. It is true that they have a lot of players in attack, but I have confidence in my team because I know what we are. We’ll have to be at 120% because a single mistake can cost us a goal, but it’s a good game ahead of us, and we’ll have to show that we can compete against this type of team.
“I wouldn’t say revenge, but just show the true face of Monaco. This is the feeling that prevails before Sunday’s game. The game against Lens was tough, the coach reminded us of that. But it’s a good challenge for us.” show that we can bounce back from failure.
To choose: This one should finally see PSG run closer than before this campaign, but they should still have enough to see off Monaco. Both teams could score in the capital, but it is likely that Galtier’s men could win by one or two goals. A one-goal margin would not be a surprise, but a two-goal margin seems most likely. Mbappé will be motivated again at the Parc des Princes and will face his team in training after last week’s treble in Lille.
