PSG can strike a big blow

A success, Friday, in Monaco at the opening of the 11th day of Ligue 1, would allow Thomas Tuchel’s troops to enter the annals of the capital club.

This time, the international break will have been beneficial to the PSG. While several Parisian players had returned injured or exhausted from their stay in the selection, not to mention Mauro icardi, hit in the knee at Camp des Loges, Thomas Tuchel this time recovered several players who frequented the infirmary. Some should be too fair to return to Monaco on Friday at the opening of the 11th day of Ligue 1, Kylian Mbappé, Neymar or Pablo Sarabia should be present.

Good news as the Rouge et Bleu pay a visit to their pet peeve. Monaco is in fact the Ligue 1 club that succeeds the least for the Parisians with only 21 wins for 41 losses in 88 confrontations. The results are obviously even worse in Louis II with only 9 successes for 24 losses and 10 draws in 44 trips. The situation has certainly changed since the acquisition of the club by QSI. The PSG thus remains on twelve matches without defeat vis-a-vis the club of the Principality in all competitions with some notable successes like the 7-1 where the 4-0 inflicted last January.

And PSG can be all the more confident that Thomas Tuchel’s men remain on a series of eight straight wins. Since their two inaugural defeats, the champions of France have indeed won all their matches, scoring no fewer goals for only conceded. In case of new success, this Friday at Louis II, the Parisians will chain a ninth success in a row. This would be the second longest streak of its kind for the Rouge et Bleu behind the 14 consecutive games won when Thomas Tuchel arrived in 2018. This streak of nine successes would then join those achieved during the 2014-15, 2015 seasons. -16 (twice) and 2017-18.
