Les Parisiens have recorded some big victories over Jardim's side recently and Al Hain-Cole expects this to continue when the sides meet in Shenzhen

The French season’s curtain raiser will take place in Shenzhen, China, on Saturday, as Paris Saint-Germain take on Monaco in the Trophee des Champions.

Thomas Tuchel's men are the reigning Ligue 1 champions, having wrestled the crown back from their opponents and forced them into second place.

Latest Odds

PSG have won each of the last six encounters between the sides and are 8/13 (1.57) favourites with William Hill to pick up the first silverware of the season by coming out on top in China.

Les Rouges et Blancs have not lifted this trophy since the year 2000, but are available at 18/5 (4.60) to end that drought with a surprise victory in this clash.

That last victory was recorded on penalties after a 0-0 draw with Nantes, and you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on this one also heading to a shootout after a deadlocked 90 minutes.

Team News

Edinson Cavani is unavailable due to injury and Kylian Mbappe still on holiday following France's World Cup win, although Neymar is set to make a surprise return after joining up late with the squad.

Radamel Falcao, Djibril Sidibe and Danijel Subasic are absent for Leonardo Jardim’s team as they enjoy extended breaks, while Almamy Toure is absent with a hip injury.

Ever since they claimed four points from two league encounters on their way to the title in 2016/17, Monaco’s record against Les Parisiens does not make for pretty reading.

Jardim’s team have lost each of the last six meetings between the teams, conceding a massive 23 goals and scoring only four.

Predictions

With Neymar back in the fold, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem generous on a prolific PSG side extending their strong record by coming out on top in a match that features at least three goals for the seventh encounter in a row.
