The ultimate prize in the form of the Ligue 1 trophy has passed Monaco by for another year, but a long-awaited piece of silverware in the form of the Coupe de France would be just reward for their incredible campaign under Niko Kovac.
Victories over Grenoble, Nice, Metz and Lyon preceded a semi-final showdown with fourth-tier side Rumilly Vallieres, who stunned Les Monegasques with a 20th-minute opener from Alexi Peuget, but Monaco’s attacking powers soon came to the fore.
Arthur Bozon turned into his own net to level the scores seven minutes after Peuget’s opener before Aurelien Tchouameni, Wissam Ben Yedder, Cesc Fabregas and Aleksandr Golovin wrapped up a 5-1 win for Monaco on their way to a first Coupe de France final since 2010.
The five-time Coupe de France winners suffered a painful extra-time defeat to PSG in the final 11 years ago and will be out for revenge this time around, even if they have already tried and failed to dethrone the perennial Ligue 1 champions in the French top flight.
Kovac’s men head to the Stade de France on the back of a 2-1 triumph over Rennes in league action – one which saw them tighten their grip on third place – and with 10 wins from their last 11 in all competitions, Monaco ought to be brimming with confidence as they seek a first piece of silverware since 2017.
Standing in their way are the serial winners themselves. For all of their failures on the continental stage in recent years, PSG continue to sweep aside the competition domestically and are not resigned to second place in Ligue 1 just yet either.
While leaders Lille were being held to a goalless stalemate by Saint-Etienne on Sunday, PSG took advantage by sweeping aside 10-man Reims 4-0 at the Parc des Princes, with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Marquinhos and Moise Kean all on target for Mauricio Pochettino‘s side.
