PSG preview: Will PSG keep the advantage over their closest rivals?

While PSG didn't have their best game against Rennes in the last round, they managed to salvage a point and their streak without a loss in the league thanks to a late penalty. PSG are confidently at the top of the standings and well on their way to defend the title.

Presnel Kimpembe, Sergio Rico, and Layvin Kurzawa are out with injuries, while Milan Skriniar and Marquinhos are doubtful. Also, Enrique might decide to mix things up a bit since PSG have their rematch against Real Sociedad in Champions League scheduled for Tuesday.

Predicted lineup: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Pereira, Beraldo, Mendes – Vitinha, Ruiz, Kang-in – Mbappe, Dembele, Kolo Muani

Player to watch: Takumi Minamino

With six goals and five assists in Ligue 1 this season, Minamino has been one of Monaco's key offensive weapons so far and we can see him posing a threat to PSG in this match.

Minamino to score in the first half?

Of the six goals he scored in Ligue 1 this season, Minamino put five in the net in the first halves of matches, although just two of them were first goals of the game. Still, backing Minamino to score first might be worth a punt.
