PSG vs Monaco (December 12) betting tips and prediction
PSG are not in their best form. They have not won four games this season and the last two matches were not victories. They drew in the matches against Lens and Nice and did not show confident performance in these games. Monaco have not lost the last eight games and have won two of the last three H2H matches against Paris Saint-Germain.
I believe that Monaco will be able to score in this match. However, Les Parisiens have a stronger roster. That is the reason why both teams will be able to score. Besides, a total under 3.5 goals has played out in the last two H2H matches.
Betting prediction: Both teams to score
Odds: 1.70 (-143 American; 7/10 Fractional)
Betting prediction: Under 3.5 goals
Odds: 1.67 (-150 American; 2/3 Fractional)
