Commentary

Thank you for following our coverage of tonight’s Ligue 1 match-up between Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain. Until next time, stay safe!
Next up for Monaco is another home tie in Ligue 1 against lowly Nimes whilst PSG face a much tougher task as they host RB Leipzig in a crucial Champions League group stage clash on Tuesday evening. 
Monaco complete a sensational comeback after finding themselves 2-0 down at the break. The hosts flew out of the traps in the second half and a brace from Volland as well as a penalty from Fabregas seal a famous comeback win for Les Monegasques. PSG were very poor in the second half overall and Tuchel’s decision to replace Mbappe in the 68th minute came back to eventually haunt him.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: MONACO 3-2 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN.
E. Matazo
Gelson Martins
90' + 4' Gelson is replaced by Matazo for Kovac's men. 
90' + 4' Baiashile is fouled by Ruiz-Atil in the Monaco penalty area and that lifts some of the pressure on the home side. 
S. Jovetić
S. Diop
90' + 2' Jovetic enters the fray as Diop departs. A case of wasting a bit of time there I'd imagine!
90' + 1' There’ll be a minimum of four minutes of additional time played here in Monaco. That will feel like a lifetime for fans of the home side.
Florentino Luís
A. Tchouaméni
90' Luis comes on for Tchouameni for the hosts. The youngster has had a great night in central midfield for Monaco. 
P. Kimpembe
Yellow Card
88' Kimpembe is the latest into the referee's book as he fouls Martins who looks through on goal. That's a naughty challenge by the PSG skipper. 
Fàbregas
Yellow Card
87' Fabregas is booked as he hacks down Dagba in midfield. 
A. Florenzi
Rafinha
85' Rafinha leaves the field and is replaced by Italian full-back Florenzi.
Fàbregas
Penalty Goal
84' GOOOAAALLLLL!!! 3-2 TO MONACO. COMEBACK COMPLETED BY FABREGAS!!!! The experienced Spanish midfielder steps up and dispatches his penalty kick into the top left-hand corner of Navas’ net. What a turnaround by the hosts!
A. Diallo
Red Card
83' DIALLO IS OFF!!! The defender is originally given a yellow card by referee Clement Turpin but VAR advise that it should be upgraded to a red. 
81' PENALTY TO MONACO!!! Diallo stumbles on the ball in defence, Volland pounces and the PSG defender drags him back as the German forward advances into the box.
K. Ruiz-Atil
Yellow Card
80' Ruiz-Atil goes into the book for a late tackle on Diop. 
79' CLOSE! PSG nearly go ahead. The ball is crossed into the Monaco box and Kean lays it off to Sarabia but the Spaniard’s effort is directly at Mannone from 15 yards out. That was a big chance for the visitors.
77' Monaco are looking the most likely to get a late winner here. PSG have been slow on the ball in the second half and devoid of any real ideas. The champions need something special in the last 15 minutes of play to grab the three points.
75' OVER!! There’s an almighty scramble in front of the PSG goal as Kimpembe and Diallo can’t clear the danger. The ball then falls to Fabregas but he scoops his effort over the bar from just outside the six-yard box. Huge let off for PSG!
73' Neymar tries to take on a few defenders but Matsima tackles him and the away side get a corner. The subsequent delivery is poor though and Monaco clear the potential danger with ease.
71' Mbappe’s departure is a bit of a puzzling one. The French forward already has two goals to his name tonight and looked dangerous every time he had the ball at his feet. Kean - who hasn't featured too much tonight so far - is a lucky man to still be out there.
K. Ruiz-Atil
K. Mbappé
69' Paredes comes on to replace Mbappe who won't complete his hat-trick tonight against his former side. 
M. Bakker
L. Kurzawa
68' A change at left-back for PSG as Bakker comes on for Kurzawa.
Fàbregas
Assist
65' Not sure Fabregas knew too much about it but he gets the assist for Volland's second of the night. 
K. Volland
Goal
65' GOOOAAALLLLL!!!! 2-2. VOLLAND DRAWS MONACO LEVEL!!! What a turnaround this is and Monaco deserve to be level. A ball is whipped in by Tchouameni towards the onrushing Fabregas. Navas comes out to tackle the Spaniard but the midfielder's touch pushes the ball sideways and Volland finishes into an empty net.
64' PSG pile forward as Neymar finds Kurzawa down the left wing. The full-back picks his head up to spot Kean peeling away from his defender but the Italians first time effort goes wide at the near post.
62' PSG are looking a little tired in central midfield right now. Danilo in particular has been late to a few challenges and runs the risk of picking up a second booking if he continues.
Neymar
Á. Di María
60' Di Maria departs and Neymar joins the fun as PSG make their first change. That’s a big statement from Tuchel who potentially thinks his side need the insurance of more goals in this clash.
58' Mbappe has scored 6 goals against Monaco in his career with PSG – only Dijon (9) have suffered a worse fate to date. With 98 goals to his name across all competitions, he has already become his side’s joint fifth top goal scorer in history.
56' PSG just need to get control of the ball and slow the tempo of this match down. Monaco are buzzing right now and are hungry for a second.
54' Monaco deserve that goal after starting this second-half very well. The hosts have pushed PSG back and the introduction of Fabregas in particular has given them an extra dimension from central midfield.
K. Volland
Goal
52' GOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!! 2-1. VOLLAND!!!! Game on as Monaco get one back!! The build-up play is excellent as Tchouameni finds Martins in the box. The winger is tackled by Diallo but the ball falls very kindly to Volland who makes no mistake from close range.
50' SO CLOSE!! Monaco nearly get one back through Volland from a corner. The ball is delivered by substitute Fabregas and Volland stings Navas’ hands with a header from close range. The PSG goalkeeper did very well to keep that out. The German forward went close just a minute before too. 
48' PSG have a big early chance as Mbappe is brought down by Disasi just outside the box. Di Maria goes for goal, but his effort is just too high and doesn’t trouble Mannone.
46' Both sets of players are back on the field and the action is back underway.
Caio Henrique
F. Ballo
46' Ballo-Toure leaves the action too with Henrique his replacement. 
Fàbregas
W. Geubbels
46' The experienced Fabregas replaces Geubbels at the break as Kovac opts for a change. 
Niko Kovac may need to reassess his side’s tactics at the break. Monaco are been run ragged by Mbappe cutting in from the left flank. A substitution or two could be needed.
PSG are in complete control here in Monaco and head into the break two goals ahead. Mbappe already has a brace tonight and thought he had a first-half hat-trick but his third effort was ruled out for offside by VAR. Monaco need to respond early in the second-half or PSG could easily run this score up.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: MONACO 0-2 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN. 
45' + 1' GOAL DISALLOWED!! It stays 2-0 here in Monaco. Mbappe had strayed just offside and VAR cancels out his first-half hat-trick. 
45' GOAL?! DOES MBAPPE HAVE A FIRST-HALF HAT-TRICK?! What a player this young man is. Diallo bursts forward with the ball and feeds a ball through to Mbappe who chips Mannone from 10 yards out. VAR will check the goal though as the Monaco defenders seemed certain the striker had strayed into an offside position. 
43' It’s a long, long way back for Monaco now in this one. The hosts have largely played well but find themselves two behind before the break. PSG are managing this game very well and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they go on to add more goals this evening.
40' VAR confirms that Kean was infact offside and Monaco survive going a third goal behind. That's a huge let off for Badiashile whose mistake led to that disallowed finish. 
39' PSG look like they have a third as Kean finds the top left-hand corner of the net but the linesman flags him for offside. VAR will get involved with this one.
K. Mbappé
Penalty Goal
37' GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! 2-0 PSG. MBAPPE AGAIN!!!! The French forward steps up to the penalty spot and dispatches his effort. His attempt is full of power and it easily beats Mannone to the bottom right-hand corner of the goal. 
Y. Fofana
Yellow Card
35' Fofana gets a yellow card for the late challenge. 
35' PENALTY FOR PSG!!! Rafinha breaks into the box and crosses from the right but Fofana follows through on his man and the referee points to the spot.
34' PSG have won each of their last four away Ligue 1 games without conceding a goal. Monaco will need something special tonight to turn this one around. 
32' NEARLY AN EQUALISER!! What a let off this is for Kurzawa! A ball is looped over from the left wing by Monaco and the full-back tries to nod the ball back to Navas but his effort doesn’t get there. Instead he gives the ball to Geubbels who heads wide from five yards out.
30' OOOHHHH! PSG could have a big chance on the counterattack but Mbappe can’t play through Kean. It’s a big punt up field from Kurzawa but the Monaco defence are asleep on the halfway line and Mbappe breaks. The French forward tries to find Kean but Badiashile does well to recover.
28' PSG are really focusing their play down the left wing so far tonight in an effort to really test Matsima at right-back for Monaco. The full-back could do with a bit more help from Martins in front of him.
Á. Di María
Assist
25' A lovely through ball from Di Maria who sliced the Monaco defence open with that contribution. 
K. Mbappé
Goal
25'  GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! 1-0 PSG. MBAPPE!!! What a finish this is! Monaco lose the ball in the middle of the park and Danilo pounces. The midfielder releases Di Maria who in turn finds Mbappe through the middle. Disasi has to pull out of the challenge as the PSG forward rounds him before coolly slotting into the top left corner from just inside the box as Mannone advanced.
24' Monaco are doing a fantastic job of pressing the play when necessary here. Youngster Matsima in particular has done well so far tonight in his task of facing Mbappe head-to-head.
22' Monaco have won only two of their last 16 Ligue 1 games against Paris (D8 L6), after winning three of the previous four (D1). Monaco are in fact winless in their last seven games against PSG in the top-flight (D2 L5), while they have never gone 8+ consecutive league games without a win against them.
Danilo Pereira
Yellow Card
20' Danilo is the first name into the referee's book tonight for a brash foul on Tchouameni. The Portuguese midfielder was just too late there. 
18' Great play from Mbappe gives Di Maria a chance to shoot from distance. The Argentinian winger goes for goal from around 30 yards out but his left-footed effort drifts harmlessly wide.
16' Not too many chances in this one so far. PSG have dominated the early possession but there’s no lack of fight from Monaco who are very much getting stuck into their tackles.
14' PSG look to be playing in a 4-2-2-2 formation tonight with Mbappe joining Kean upfront for the visitors. The pair will certainly pose some big challenges for Disasi and Badiashile at the back for Monaco tonight!
12' CHANCE! Volland steps up to the free kick and unleashes a left-footed strike from 25 yards out. His effort is powerful but it’s straight at Navas who pushes the ball away to his right.
10' Danilo commits a handball and Monaco have a very dangerous free kick just outside of the PSG penalty area. Volland looks like the one to take.
8' The first shot of the match comes from Diop for the home side. The winger cuts inside from the left flank but his effort is weak and slides well wide of Navas’ near post.
6' As expected, Mbappe has already had plenty of touches of the ball in the early stages on this match. His return from injury is a huge boost for Thomas Tuchel and his PSG side.
4' Monaco were of course the last team to win Ligue 1 other than PSG – Les Monegasques winning the 2016-17 title. A win tonight against their rivals from Paris would send out a big statement!
2' Early frustration for the visitors as Rafinha’s through ball towards Mbappe hits the referee. That could have been a big early opening for PSG.
1' Referee Clement Turpin blows his whistle and we’re underway here at Stade Louis II!
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick-off is just moments away.
Monaco are unbeaten in their last eight home Ligue 1 games (W5 D3), their best run since December 2017-August 2018 (13). Will the hosts be able to keep that run going tonight by thwarting Mbappe & co?
After winning last time out at home to Rennes 3-0, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel makes a few changes due to new injury concerns. Star forward Mbappe returns on the right after playing for France in mid-week whilst Kean also starts despite skipping international duty due to a slight knock. With a long list of injuries for the away side and despite a lengthy trip back from his native Argentina just a few days ago - Di Maria starts on the left wing tonight. Rafinha and Dagba also grab rare starts as Neymar is only fit enough to make the bench.
Monaco boss Niko Kovac opts for a surprising and very youthful line-up with his side struggling for their strongest XI due to injury concerns. Goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte is out until next year so former Reading and Sunderland shot stopper Mannone starts in goal whilst Wissam Ben Yedder returned a positive COVID-19 test whilst on international duty in mid-week. Ruben Aguilar misses out through suspension so 18-year-old Matsima fills in at right-back. There’s also starts upfront for the experienced Volland and exciting prospect Geubbels. 
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN SUBS: Sergio Rico, Marquinhos, Alessandro Florenzi, Mitchel Bakker, Timothee Pembele, Leandro Paredes, Kays Ruiz-Atil, Bandiouguo Fadiga, Neymar.
