Ligue 1 action on Sunday as PSG and Monaco meet at the Parc des Princes – 8:45pm GMT.

Leaders PSG are currently 11 places higher than their opponents Monaco, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and twelfth positions respectively.

Winning the Ligue 1 and securing a Champion’s League qualification is Paris Saint-Germain’s focus

PSG must take a positive approach to this game, if they are to get anything out of, following their recent defeat to Lille at Stade Pierre Mauroy.

Also, that’s a run of three wins for League leaders PSG, to sit within the reach of a Champion’s League place. They currently sit in first place, top of the League, having accrued nine points so far this season. This means a record of 3 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws having won three matches.

When PSG host Monaco, they will do so on the back of one win on their own ground.

Paris Saint-Germain will want to keep the pressure on their rivals as they sit at the top of the table, a win will take them to 12 points and keep their momentum going forward.

It is likely that one key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Christophe Galtier and his PSG team.

AS Mónaco have four points to their name, going into this tie

Monaco need a positive result from this game, if they are to move their season forward. Their last match resulted in a loss to RC Lens, before that they drew away to Rennes, 1-1.

Also, Monaco will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose one game this Ligue 1 season. Now they have 1 matches won, 1 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in twelfth place, with a total of four points having won one game, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Monaco have won one game.

AS Mónaco will see 7 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Monaco’s squad has depth, but even so, Philippe Clement is likely to be missing two of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
