PSV have appeared to be going backwards at times this season under Roger Schmidt, particularly during a period when they lost to Feyenoord and Willem II.
Schmidt, though, will be content with the current scenario, as they are only one point behind Eredivisie leaders Ajax and are performing well in the Europa League.
Clean sheets are still an issue for this club, with only one in eight tries, but scoring 22 goals in nine games cannot be overlooked on the other end.
Despite having the same number of points as their next European opponents, Monaco's performances have been somewhat less remarkable.
Nico Kovac saw his club give up a lead in Spain to draw with Real Sociedad after beating off group minnows Sturm Graz by a 1-0 scoreline.
However, remaining undefeated at this point is a commendable achievement, especially given their domestic inconsistency.
Monaco dropped to 10th place in Ligue 1 after a 2-0 loss at Lyon on Saturday, their fourth in ten league games.
PSV will be missing midfielder Ibrahim Sangare, who was sent off in the 2-2 draw with Sociedad.
Davy Propper might be recalled in his stead, while Noni Madueke, who returned from injury at the weekend, will be hoping to play.
After missing Saturday's league game due to suspension, Aurelien Tchouameni and Sofiane Diop are scheduled to return for Monaco.
Guillermo Maripan is also expected to be called up to the defense, while Myron Boadu will be hoping for a chance to play in his own country.
Expect neither team to surge forward at will in this game, since the margins for error are so limited. However, this might be an exciting match that ends in a sharing of the spoils. This game will conclude in a draw.
KICKOFF TIME: PSV versus Monaco will be played today at 8PM Nigerian time.
