On Friday, Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco will face off at the Stade Louis-II, adding another chapter to their storied rivalry. Here's a look at five memorable matches that have defined the history between PSG and Monaco.

PSG 2-0 Monaco: May 19, 2021 (Coupe de France final)


Over the years, PSG and Monaco have played several domestic cup finals, with the last one occurring in 2021. The contest for the Coupe de France trophy was tight, and Mauro Icardi's goal in the 19th minute made the difference for most of the game. Kylian Mbappé then added an insurance goal against his former club to secure PSG another trophy.

Monaco 3-2 PSG: November 20, 2020 (Ligue 1)


Cesc Fàbregas spent four years with Monaco and was nearing the end of his legendary career, but in 2020, he dialed back the clock for a prime performance against PSG. After PSG went up 2-0, Monaco made it 2-1 courtesy of a goal from Kevin Volland. Then Fàbregas took over, as he had the assist on the brace that Volland scored, and then the former Arsenal player scored the game-winning goal late in the second half to give Monaco the win.

 

 

 

PSG 4-1 Monaco: April 1, 2017 (Coupe de la Ligue final)


It was the Ángel Di María show in this Coupe de la Ligue final between PSG and Monaco, as the Argentine had a hand in three of the four goals scored. Di María assisted on the opening goal from Julian Draxler, and he then scored the go-ahead goal after Monaco leveled the scoring. The legendary PSG player then added his second assist for Edinson Cavani to complete his brace and give the Parisians a convincing win.

 

 

Monaco 2-0 PSG: March 20, 2016 (Ligue 1)


PSG rarely gets shut out convincingly at home, but Monaco did just that during their trip to the Parc des Princes in 2016. Les Rouge et Blanc struck twice in three minutes, with Vágner Love scoring in the 65th minute and Fabinho adding the insurance goal in the 68th minute.

 

 

PSG 1-0 Monaco: May 1, 2010 (Coupe de France final)


After a scoreless 90 minutes, PSG and Monaco went to extra time, where anyone on their squad could become a hero and gift their team a trophy. Guillaume Hoarau scored in the first half of extra time during stoppage time, becoming the hero for the Parisians and handing the capital club the Coupe de France in dramatic fashion.
