Paris Saint-Germain is set to meet AS Monaco on Ligue 1 matchday four. PSG is just coming off of the all-around stout performance in its 7-1 away victory over Lille OSC, while Monaco came away with a 4-1 defeat to RC Lens on matchday three.
Unlike in PSG’s previous two matches, the side will see one notable starting 11 alteration, as Vitinha will not feature in this upcoming fixture against AS Monaco due to a yellow card suspension.
As noted by WhoScored, PSG manager Christophe Galtier should still roll out a star-studded lineup for this matchup.
Donnarumma; Ramos, Marquinhos, Kimpembe; Hakimi, Verratti, Sanches, Mendes; Messi; Neymar, Mbappe
With Vitinha out for this contest, Galtier is expected to call upon Renato Sanches to make his first career start with PSG in Ligue 1 play. Sanches sure must build formidable chemistry with Marco Verratti in PSG’s double-pivot midfield setup.
Neymar has simply been on another level in Ligue 1 so far this season, chipping in with 11 total goal contributions through three such matches played. The Brazilian forward sure has what it takes to record at least two goal contributions against AS Monaco.
Overall, PSG has picked up two wins over its last five meetings with AS Monaco in all competitions.
