Paris Saint-Germain host Monaco on Sunday evening as Ligue 1's reigning champions threaten to quash all domestic competition that comes their way.

With all three of their glittering trio on the scoresheet, PSG routed Lille to the tune of 7-1 last weekend - supposedly their toughest test of the campaign so far.

Philippe Clement's side were involved in a thrashing themselves but ended up on the wrong side of a 4-1 romp for Lens. Monaco have already bowed out of the Champions League qualifiers this month while mustering three Ligue 1 points from as many matches.

Here's everything you need to know about the latest side to wander into PSG's den.

PSG team news

PSG vs Monaco score prediction

Playing with the swagger of the Harlem Globetrotters at times, PSG have plundered a sickening 17 goals in their first three - yes, just three - Ligue 1 games this season. Monaco have mustered four.

On home soil - where they have been unbeatable even before playing as a cohesive unit - PSG are comfortable favourites against the vast majority of Europe, let alone an out-of-sorts Monaco side.

Prediction: PSG 4-1 Monaco
