Commentary

That's all for today. Thank you for following our coverage. Until next time, goodbye!
After seeing their five-match winning streak end, PSG will be desperately eyeing a response when they face bottom side Dijon next weekend. As for Monaco, they look to build on their momentum and extend their 12-game unbeaten run at home to Brest.
Goals from Sofiane Diop and Guillermo Maripan secure a hugely impressive 2-0 win for Monaco over a below-par PSG at Parc des Princes. Niko Kovac's side close the gap on their third-place opponents to just two points and put a severe dent in their Ligue 1 title hopes. 
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: PSG 0-2 MONACO
K. Mbappé
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Mbappe clashes with Disasi on the edge of the Monaco area and goes into the book. It has been a frustrating day for him.
90' + 1' There are going to be five additional minutes at the end of this game.
F. Ballo
K. Volland
90' After putting in a huge shift for Monaco, Volland is given a well-earned rest by Kovac. Fode Ballo-Toure comes on in his place.
87' Mbappe will be bitterly disappointed not to have had a positive impact on this contest. He had found the net seven times in the four previous meetings between the sides, but has been unusually quiet today.
84' Danilo looks to influence the game as he unleashes an ambitious effort from distance. However, his attempt is always rising.
82' Monaco are just eight minutes away from extending their unbeaten run to 12 matches in all competitions. This would be a 10th victory during that span.
A. Golovin
S. Diop
80' Aleksandr Golovin also enters the action with Diop making way.
D. Sidibé
R. Aguilar
80' Monaco make a double-change. The first sees Djibril Sidibe replace Aguilar.
77' Neat play by the hosts sees the ball break for Kean in the box. However, his eventual shot is well-blocked and deflected away from goal by the Monaco defence.
75' A quarter of an hour remaining at Parc des Princes. Can PSG respond, or is their five-match winning streak set to end here?
Danilo Pereira
L. Paredes
73' The other sees Paredes make way for Danilo Pereira.
J. Draxler
M. Icardi
73' Another double-change for PSG. Julian Draxler comes on for Icardi in the first one.
S. Jovetić
W. Ben Yedder
71' Ben Yedder is given a rest by Kovac, who introduces Stevan Jovetic in his place.
69' PSG know this contest is not over yet, though. They were on the receiving end of an inspired comeback by Monaco in the reverse fixture in November, so will have hope that they can do the same here.
67' Monaco still two goals to the good as we enter the final quarter of this game. Victory for the visitors would see them close the gap on PSG to just two points.
65' The visitors appeal for a penalty after Aguilar goes to ground in the box. However, the referee is quick to deny them a spot-kick.
63' Monaco could have been out of sight had Volland nodded in his 13th goal of the season. The German has also registered seven assists this season; a tally only bettered by Di Maria and Jonathan Bamba in Ligue 1.
61' WHAT A CHANCE! Volland must score! The German is unmarked as he meets Henrique's cushioned volley across the area, but glances his header wide of the target.
60' KEAN SHOULD DO BETTER! The striker has a free header as he climbs well in the box, but can only direct it straight at the goalkeeper.
L. Paredes
Yellow Card
57' Paredes goes into the book for a rash challenge on Fofana.
M. Verratti
Ander Herrera
55' Herrera is also withdrawn and Marco Verratti takes his place.
Rafinha
I. Gueye
55' PSG make a double-change. The first sees Gueye make way for Raphina.
53' Are Monaco on for the league double over their title rivals? They are looking good here and PSG have plenty of work to do.
G. Maripán
Goal
51' MARIPAN!!! 2-0 MONACO! Breathing space for the visitors! The ball breaks kindly for the centre-half, who neatly slots it into the far corner and beyond the reach of Navas.
P. Kimpembe
Yellow Card
50' Kimpembe goes into the book for a rash challenge on Tchouameni.
48' The visitors go straight onto the attack with Tchouameni leading the charge, but a well-timed tackle by Kimpembe stops him in his tracks.
46' Monaco get the ball rolling again in this second half.
As for PSG, they have struggled to pose a genuine threat on the Monaco goal so far today. That is something Pochettino will address at the break, and expect an improvement upon the restart.
Sofiane Diop's sixth-minute header has given Monaco a half-time lead against PSG. The visitors have been good value for their advantage so far, but must look to press it home in the second half.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: PSG 0-1 MONACO
I. Gueye
Yellow Card
45' Gueye catches Ben Yedder with a rash challenge and goes into the book.
43' Gueye seeks out the run of Florenzi with a diagonal ball to the far side of the pitch. However, there is just too much pace on the pass and it runs behind for a goal kick.
40' PSG have found the net in the first half of their last six home games, but have struggled to mount a genuine threat on the Monaco goal so far. Can they change that in the latter stages of this first half?
38' Mbappe has endured a fairly quiet day against his former club thus far. The top scorer in Ligue 1, PSG's number seven has found the net 16 times this season, while providing a further six assists.
36' Gueye involved again as he sweeps an inviting cross into the box. However, Kurzawa and Icardi get in each other's way and Monaco clear once more.
35' Good effort! Space opens for Gueye to try his luck with an ambitious attempt from distance. The midfielder's effort flashes just wide of the far post, with Lecomte watching it all the way.
33' A brief moment of panic for Monaco, as they are caught in possession just outside their own penalty area. Thankfully for the visitors, Badiashile is alert and able to clear the danger before PSG can get a shot on goal.
31' Florenzi appeared to kick out at Volland as the pair tangled down PSG's right flank. However, the incident is quickly played down with both players shaking hands and making amends. Other officials may have taken a far less lenient approach there.
28' Although Monaco have been hugely impressive on the road in recent weeks, they have looked fragile defensively. In fact, despite each of their last five away games resulting in victory, they have conceded eight goals during that span.
26' Of course, Monaco are looking to get back to winning ways today. Last week's 2-2 draw with Lorient ended a run of eight consecutive victories in Ligue 1.
24' Monaco still a goal to the good as we pass the midway point in the first half. The visitors have been good value for their lead so far, but cannot afford to rest on their laurels just yet.
22' Disasi should do better! The Monaco defender has a free header after he is left unmarked from a corner, but is unable to generate the required power and direction on the ball and Navas gathers.
19' Nothing comes of the corner as the PSG defence stands firm to deal with the danger and clear their lines.
18' A chance for Monaco to press home their advantage as Volland forces a corner out of Marquinhos. The visitors have made a bright start and a second goal would establish breathing space in the contest.
16' A good opportunity for the hosts, who are awarded a free-kick on the edge of the box. Kurzawa steps up, but is unable to keep his delivery down.
A. Tchouaméni
Yellow Card
15' Tchouameni goes into the book for a rash challenge on Kean.
14' PSG slowly settling into the game and knocking the ball around as they look to settle into their rhythm. They are yet to truly test the goalkeeper in this game so far.
11' Thanks to that early Diop goal, Monaco have now found the net in the first half of each of their last seven away games. There is still a long way to go, but Kovac will be very pleased by the start his side have made.
9' Monaco lead at Parc des Princes. They last tasted victory here in March 2016 courtesy of a 2-0 success - although, PSG had already wrapped up the Ligue 1 title at that point.
7' PSG look to respond immediately as Icardi latches onto a long ball into the box. However, his looping volley drops just over the crossbar.
R. Aguilar
Assist
6' Aguilar demonstrated great awareness to cushion the ball across the area for Diop to finish.
S. Diop
Goal
6' DIOP!!! 1-0 MONACO! What a start for the visitors! Following a quickfire break down the left, Aguilar nods a deep cross into the path of Diop, who makes no mistake in heading past Navas from close range.
3' PSG have won 10 of their last 12 meetings with Monaco, scoring 43 goals during that span. Although, Kovac's side did triumph when the teams met at Stade Louis II in November, when Cesc Fabregas inspired a turnaround.
1' The referee blows his whistle and PSG get the match underway.
The teams are out and kick-off is fast approaching at Parc des Princes.
It is hard to pick a winner in this game. PSG arrive on the back of a five-match winning streak, while Monaco are unbeaten in 11 and have won their last five on the road.
As for Monaco, Niko Kovac makes two changes from last week's draw with Lorient. Axel Disasi and Ruben Aguilar return to the starting line-up, with Djibril Sidibe and Krepin Diatta dropping to the bench.
Unsurprisingly, Pochettino makes just a single change to the side that began the thumping 4-1 victory over Barcelona in midweek. Ander Herrera replaces Marco Verratti in midfield, while the likes of Neymar, Angel di Maria and Pablo Sarabia are absent through injury.
SUBS: Vito Mannone, Aleksandr Golovin, Fode Ballo-Toure, Djibril Sidibe, Chrislain Matsima, Krepin Diatta, Eliot Matazo, Cesc Fabregas, Stefan Jovetic.
MONACO (4-4-2): Benjamin Lecomte; Axel Disasi, Guillermo Maripan, Benoit Badiashile, Caio Henrique; Ruben Aguilar, Youssouf Fofana, Aurelien Tchouameni, Sofiane Diop; Kevin Volland, Wissam Ben Yedder (captain).
SUBS: Sergio Rico, Mitchel Bakker, Abdou Diallo, Thilo Kehrer, Danilo Pereira, Julian Draxler, Rafinha, Xavi Simons, Marco Verratti.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN (4-3-3): Keylor Navas; Alessandro Florenzi, Marquinhos (captain), Presnel Kimpembe, Layvin Kurzawa; Leandro Paredes, Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye; Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappe.
It is third against fourth in Ligue 1 at the Parc des Princes. PSG are looking to close the gap on leaders Lille to a single point, while Monaco are looking to move to within two of Mauricio Pochettino's side today.
Hello everyone and welcome to live text coverage of the eagerly anticipated Ligue 1 showdown between Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.
