In the opening of Matchday 24 of Ligue 1, PSG settled for a draw against Monaco (0-0) on their turf. Parisians owe thanks to Gianluigi Donnarumma for his stellar performance.

Four days before their clash against Real Sociedad, PSG visited Monaco for Matchday 24 of Ligue 1. In an entertaining match, neither Parisians nor Monegasques managed to break the deadlock.

The French capital club can (and should) attribute their performance to Gianluigi Donnarumma, who made crucial saves in the first half. Despite PSG's dominance in the second half, they failed to convert their chances. Speaking to Prime Video, the Italian goalkeeper declined to focus on his standout performance.

"No, I don't want to talk about my performance, although I had a good game. The team as well, it's not easy here. It's tough to play here and we had come to win, but Monaco is a great team, it's very difficult to play here. We played well and we're ready for Tuesday. How do you explain the change in performance in the second half? No, the opponent has a lot of quality, so it's normal to face some difficulties. In the second half, we played differently, it's normal. We played a very good game and we're ready for Tuesday."

Despite their efforts to secure a victory, PSG's inability to capitalize on their dominance in the second half ultimately led to a shared result. Donnarumma's exceptional performance in goal undoubtedly saved PSG from a potential defeat.
