real madrid - al hilal match, on 05-12-2023,


The French team, Paris Saint-Germain, will visit Monaco at six in the evening today, at the “Louis II” stadium, in the matches of the 23rd round of the French Premier League competitions. Paris Saint-Germain, the leader of the French League standings, hopes to get out of the state of weightlessness after the sudden exit from the French Cup competition against Olympique de Marseille.

Paris Saint-Germain suffers at all levels, after it fell in two matches in the French League at the beginning of the new year 2023 against Lens, 1-3, and against Rennes 0-1, while it won twice in a row over Montpellier 3-1 and Toulouse 2-1 in the last two rounds.

On the other hand, Monaco presents a largely good season, as the team ranks fourth with 44 points, a full 10 points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain with 54.

And French press reports had revealed that Argentine legend Lionel Messi suffered a hamstring injury during the Marseille match against Paris Saint-Germain, which ended with the first victory with two goals to one in the round of 16 of the French Cup for the current season 2022-2023.

And according to the newspaper "L'Equipe", Lionel Messi suffered an injury in the Marseille match, which makes his absence against Monaco a certainty.

While Christophe Galtier, coach of Paris Saint-Germain, confirmed the participation of Argentine star Lionel Messi in his team’s match against Bayern Munich, which is expected next Tuesday, in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, but he will miss the Monaco match in the French League.

Galtier said during the press conference for the match, "Messi will be absent against Monaco and will return on Monday and will be available to face Bayern. His presence is certain to face Bayern. Messi is the one who controls the play in our team and has always been decisive for us. In his absence, we have to find another way, but certainly going to Monaco without Messi is annoying."

He added, "There are moments of exhaustion and fatigue in the team. This is something that all coaches suffer from. We have to find replacements and pump new blood."

He continued, "The players are very affected by the exit from Marseille. At these moments, some rhetoric must be avoided, but there must be clarity and clarification of what should not be done."

And about Ashraf Hakimi, the Paris coach, commented: "Hakimi is not injured, he was just tired and will participate against Monaco."

Saint-Germain has been suffering since the beginning of the new year, as it fell in two of its first three matches in the league, before achieving two consecutive victories in the past two stages, and its loss on Wednesday against Marseille raised more than one question mark about the team’s performance days before the Bayern match.
