    Paris Saint-Germain are Ligue 1’s leading goal scorers with 54 goals. Will our algorithm predict Ligue 1’s top team to rack up the goals once more in round No. 24?

    On Friday night, Paris Saint-Germain will visit Monaco at the Stade Louis II. Thirteen points separate the two teams in the Ligue 1 table, with PSG in first place and Monaco in third.

    The Monegasque are battling for Champions League qualification, while Paris are cruising to yet another league title. There is a trend between these teams in which the home team picked up points in each of the five meetings between Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain.

    In the reverse Ligue 1 fixture, Paris romped to a 5-2 win. Sergio Ramos opened the scoring for PSG, but Monaco’s Takumi Minamino levelled the score on 22 minutes.

    Kylian Mbappe put Paris Saint-Germain back into the lead on 39 minutes. The final 20 minutes of the match saw a flood of goals, with Paris scoring thanks to goals from Ousmane Dembele, Vitinha, and Randal Kolo Muani.

    Florian Balogun pulled a goal back for Monaco, but it was too little, too late for a comeback. Paris Saint-Germain are unbeaten in their last 18 Ligue 1 games. The pressure will be on Monaco to get points at home.

    Luis Enrique’s PSG picked up 14 points from their last six games, scoring 12 goals and conceding five times. Paris are the league’s best away team and are on a three-game winning streak away from the Parc des Princes.

    Monaco only bagged eight points from the last six matches in Ligue 1. They were outscored 12-11 across those six games.

    The Monegasque have blown hot and cold at the Stade Louis II this season. A record of 6W-1D-4L and a goal difference of +7 is all Monaco have achieved.

    Former Monaco player Mbappe leads Ligue 1 in goal scoring stats this season. The Frenchman has 21 goals, which accounts for 39% of PSG’s scoring.

    Forward Dembele has tallied seven assists. The winger is Ligue 1’s joint assists statistics leader.

    Monaco forward Wissam Ben Yedder is third in the league goal scoring charts, with 11 goals. Aleksandr Golovin and Minamino have added six goals apiece to the Monaco cause. Monaco are Ligue 1’s second-highest scorers.

    Will our AI-powered scorer predictor pick another high-scoring game between Monaco and PSG? Not quite. Friday’s match should be close, with PSG picking up a 2-1 win over Monaco. Mbappe could be on target once more.
