Monaco-PSG, lineup: Adi Hütter’s very strong choices


By: Manu Tournoux

Paris Saint-Germain travels to Monaco this Friday evening for the 24th day of Ligue 1 (9 p.m.). Here is the expected line-up for the Principality club.

Accustomed to blowing hot and cold since the start of the calendar year, AS Monaco is up against the best in Ligue 1 this Friday evening, for a very enticing display against Paris Saint-Germain. The Principality club approaches this match with a little taste of revenge after a heavy defeat at the Parc which did not necessarily reflect the content of the meeting (2-5).

It remains to be seen whether Kylian Mbappé will be the holder on his former lands. Adi Hütter has a very clear plan. “ Wilfried Singo defended him very well in the first leg and had a great match. But PSG has a lot of offensive solutions and is not only counting on Mbappé, who will perhaps be in the middle. On the right, Dembélé is a very good player and Barcola is also very fast. You will have to be very concentrated. We will not be able to defend one on one for 90 minutes against this type of formation, we will have to do it as a team. All players must be at their best“, launched the technician.

Monaco with its vital forces

Singo is therefore expected in the defensive line, just like former Parisian Thilo Kehrer, who should cross paths with his former teammates. In midfield, the usual executives are expected, with a complementary and well-oiled Fofana-Zakaria pair.

In its offensive animation, Monaco should be able to count on all its strong men. The eccentric playmakers Minamino and Golovin will focus all hopes on creating gaps in the Parisian defense, just like Ben Yedder used to shining against the capital club. Balogun should complete the attacking quartet.

The expected line-up for Monaco : Khön – Singo, Kehrer, Salisu, Ouattara – Minamino, Fofana, Zakaria, Golovin – Ben Yedder, Balogun.
