PSG are back in action with another important Ligue 1 fixture this weekend as they take on Monaco at the Parc des Princes on Sunday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win this game.
Monaco are in seventh place in the Ligue 1 standings and have not been at their best this season. The away side eased past Monaco by a 4-0 margin last week and will want a similar result in this fixture.
PSG, on the other hand, are at the top of the league table at the moment and have been fairly impressive this season. The Parisians thrashed Club Brugge in the Champions League this week and will be confident ahead of this match.
