Tip Monaco - PSG
PSG and Monaco are both still in the Ligue 1 title race but this week they put that to the side to focus on the French Cup. The two face off at Stade de France in the final, for the chance to bag silverware ahead of the grand finale in Ligue 1. Both are coming from wins in Ligue 1 over the weekend. Monaco saw off Rennes 2-1 to keep their slim league title hopes alive, that being their third straight win. They’ve been in fine form lately, and their only loss in the last 13 matches was in the league against Lyon. Of the two sides, Monaco will be the lesser interested in pushing with their league title ambitions going into the final day of the season. They are behind Lille by three points and can only rely on goal difference, thus it is more appropriate to focus on the cup. They’ve faced three Ligue 1 sides in their five matches in the cup and the only goal they conceded was against National 2 side Rumilly Vallieres in the semis. They won 5-1 to set up this final.
PSG are coming from a 4-0 win over Reims, which was a big boost to their league title ambitions after Lille played to a draw over the weekend. They had a tougher route to the final, having to face Lille, Brest and Angers on their way. In the semis, they needed post match penalties to see off Montpellier after a 2-2 draw but that was the only time they conceded in this competition. PSG are the defending champions of this competition; they have no loss in their last 11 French Cup matches. They’ve struggled a bit lately though, with their wins over Reims offering the first clean sheet in seven matches across all competitions. In the two meetings with Monaco this season, PSG have lost both and it will be interesting to see how they respond in this game.
Key points Monaco - PSG
Monaco have four clean sheets in the last five French Cup matches.
PSG have one clean sheet in their last seven matches.
PSG are unbeaten in 11 French Cup matches.

Conclusion Monaco - PSG
PSG have been on shaky run lately and their elimination from the Champions League must have been an eye opener. While they are keeping hopes up for the league title, they remain second favorites there, which is the more reason they’ll give a lot for this clash. They lost to Monaco in both matches this season and revenge will also be on their minds. In the form shown against Reims, we will back PSG to win here.
