Monaco shocked PSG last night after their famous night in Barcelona.

And Monaco boss, Niko Kovac revealed his game plan later.

Afterwards, Monaco head coach Kovac told Canal+: “I am very happy with the performance of my team. Paris are a great team.

“We played very hard for 90 minutes and we deserved the victory. They didn’t have a lot of opportunities. I have to congratulate my players.

“Our plan? We had to erase Kylian Mbappe because he’s a great striker. Deprive him of the ball by being three or four on him. In defence, we showed another face of Monaco, because we didn’t concede many chances.

“Tonight was wonderful. This is what we needed. We managed to beat PSG for the second time, now we are going home and going to rest.”

“The top three? As I said before, we mainly have to increase the gap with the fifth and sixth,” added former Bayern Munich boss Kovac, who is leading Monaco back to the upper echelon of Ligue 1, having languished ninth and 17th in the previous two seasons.

“There are still a few games left, if we have the opportunity to close the gap then we will do it. But we are not yet at the level of the first three.”
