PSG: Warren Zaire-Emery is out injured until the new year after scoring on his senior international debut and then getting injured in doing so. Marco Asensio, Nuno Mendes, Presnel Kimpembe, Danilo Pereira and Keylor Navas have also been out of action of late. Marquinhos picked up an issue in South America so is a doubt while Manuel Ugarte and Lee Kang In have also traveled heavily this international period. Achraf Hakimi and Randal Kolo Muani are back from their bans, though, to boost Luis Enrique.
Potential PSG XI: Donnarumma; Hakimi, Mukiele, Skriniar, L. Hernandez; Ruiz, Vitinha, Soler; Dembele, Kolo Muani, Mbappe.
Monaco: Youssouf Fofana is suspended while Mohamed Camara is expected to start over Eliot Matazo and Edan Diop. Mohammed Salisu, Caio Henrique (ACL), Myron Boadu and Eliesse Ben Seghir are all injured while Adi Hutter will be sweating Folarin Balogun, Takumi Minamino and Guillermo Maripan game readiness post-internationals. Balogun was edged out by Wissam Ben Yedder against Le Havre and will seek to end his recent drought here.
Potential Monaco XI: Kohn; Singo, Magassa, Matsima; Vanderson, Camara, Zakaria, Jakobs; Akliouche, Golovin; Ben Yedder.
Despite the absentees, PSG should win this one at home although it could be tight and Monaco do have a shot at getting a draw. That said, Nice won in Paris in these exact circumstances earlier this season and the same could happen again given PSG's defensive depth issues. Pick: PSG 2, Monaco 1.
