MON vs PSG Dream11: Just three days after sharing the spoil in the thrilling 3-3 draw at Parc des Princes, AS Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain bump into each other again in the league, with the reigning champions travelling for this fixture which will be played at Stade Louis II (IST) on Wednesday night.
PSG are leading the table with five points advantage over Marseille at second but have played a game less than them. That draw ended a run of six wins for Thomas Tuchel and his men, and the visitors will be desperate for all three points, especially after Marseille's win over Rennes.
AS Monaco, on the other hand, are under management following the sacking of Leonardo Jardim. And if the first game is an indicator of things coming in the future, we can deduce that Monaco will be more proactive under Robert Moreno.

AS Monaco Team News: Gelson Martin was forced off eight minutes from time due to an apparent knock and is a doubt for this game. Expect him to be fit for the game. However, Moreno looked optimistic about Martins' availability for this game. That means, Montenegro forward Steven Jovetic and 18-year-old forward Willem Geubbels are the only injury concern for the Principality side.
How Monaco may line-up?
Albert Moreno must be happy with his side's performance against PSG and has no apparent reason to flirt with the playing 11 that started the reverse fixture at the weekend. That means Keita Balde and Ben Yedder will start as front two, with Islam Slimani featuring from the bench despite scoring on Sunday.
Tiémoué Bakayoko and Cesc Fabregas will form the base in the midfield, with Aleksandr Golovin and Gelson Martins out on the wings.
AS Monaco key players:
Wissam Ben Yedder: 14 Goals.
Islam Slimani: 07 Goals.
Keita Balde: 04 Goals.
AS Monaco named the following squad tp face PSG:
Goalkeeper: Benaglio, Lecomte, SY
Defenders: Aguilar, Badiashile, Ballo-Toure, Glik, Maripan, Henrichs
