Monaco vs PSG: Two familiar rivals go head to head in Coupe de France final

May 19, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
Defending champions PSG will hope to retain their Coupe de France trophy, but Monaco, who've had a great season will hope to snatch the title from Les Parisiens.

Preview: Monaco vs PSG

It's been a crazy season in Ligue 1, to say the least, but for now, all attention will be on the Coupe de France final. Fittingly, it's going to be two of the top three teams in Ligue 1 - Monaco and PSG - who will lock horns in what should be an exciting battle for the coveted prize. Les Parisiens are the reigning champs, having won this cup 13 times prior, while Les Rouges-et-Blancs are aiming to win their first title in 30 years.

Niko Kovac, Monaco's current coach, has experience in shocking reigning champions in cup titles. A few seasons back, the Croatian tactician, then in charge of Eintracht Frankfurt, led die Adler to a surprise upset of Bayern Munich in 2018 in the DFB-Pokal final. And having lost 11 years ago in the final of this competition to PSG, Monaco will be eager for a modicum for revenge on their familiar foes.

Monaco's path to this juncture has been pretty smooth sailing. Les Rouges-et-Blancs have successfully seen off Grenoble, Nice, Metz and Lyon, and most recently, fourth-tier side Rumilly in a resounding 5-1 win to book their first Coupe de France finals appearance since 2010. They come into this match having won at the weekend against Rennes to consolidate their grip on third place. Overall, Monaco have won ten of their last 11 games across all comps, so certainly will be brimming with confidence ahead of the showdown with PSG on Wednesday evening.

PSG, meanwhile, endured frustration once again in the Champions League, and will look to redeem themselves by winning this trophy. They're also in the hunt for the Ligue 1 title, with Lille still remaining one point ahead, so that means the title race will be decided this weekend. Mauricio Pochettino's men narrowed the gap in the table thanks to their 4-0 win over Reims, and thus have set up a grandstand finish on matchday 38. For now, their focus will be to win their fifth Coupe de France in just six seasons and maintain their eight match unbeaten run in domestic competition. 

Les Parisiens have lost both home and away to Monaco this season in Ligue 1 and so they'll be loath to allow Les Rouges-et-Blancs to best them for a third time. Who will come out on top in this titanic tie?

Team news: Monaco vs PSG

Monaco: Stefan Jovetic is still struggling with an ankle injury and will have to be evaluated prior to the match. Sofiane Diop and Pietro Pellegri will both miss out with a sprained ankle and a back injury respectively. Willem Geubbels is back from suspension, but it remains to be seen if he'll feature.

PSG: Neymar is out for this game due to a ban, which is a huge blow for Les Parisiens. Stomach issues will likely keep both Idrissa Gueye and Abdou Diallo at home, while Layvin Kurzawa, Marco Verratti, and Julian Draxler are all out injured. Presnel Kimpembe is also suspended.
