AS Monaco host Paris Saint-Germain at Stade Louis II on Friday night, as Ligue 1 action resumes after the international break.

After a scratchy start, PSG are back to a familiar position in Ligue 1, having already opened up a five-point lead at the top.

Thomas Tuchel is still under pressure, especially considering that PSG have only won one of their first three UEFA Champions League game, and could be in real trouble in their group.

For Monaco, their last two games before the international break saw them build a head of steam, with a 4-0 win over Bordeaux followed by a 2-1 success over Nice.
