Arguably the game of the weekend comes from Ligue 1 on Sunday, as league leaders PSG travel to second placed Monaco.
The game will see both teams without premier centre-forwards—as Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani will miss out due to injury—but this shouldn’t dampen what is set to be a hugely intriguing contest.
Put simply, if Monaco are to continue harbouring any hopes of winning the Ligue 1 title, a win is an absolute must here. They have been excellent in front of their own supporters so far this season having only lost one game, and a win against the current champions will put Claudio Ranieri’s side within two points of the Ligue 1 summit. Dimitar Berbatov could make his Monaco debut after his January move from Fulham and Monaco supporters will be looking to him to fill the void left by the injured Falcao.
But beating the Parisians would be some achievement. Even without Cavani, they boast a forward line of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Moura and Ezequiel Lavezzi. Yohan Cabaye could also make his first start for the club after making his debut as a substitute against Bordeaux last weekend.
If PSG can get the job done here, then the Ligue 1 title looks sewn up.
