Paris Saint Germain can open up a six point lead at the top of Ligue 1 when they travel to the champions Monaco on Sunday evening.

Perhaps not unsurprisingly, Monaco haven’t been as good as least season following a mass summer exodus.

They are second in Ligue 1 though, however were eliminated from the Champions League during the week, following a 4-1 loss at home to RB Leipzig.

Paris Saint Germain in comparison have set a record for goals scored in the group stage of the Champions League with a game to spare, following a 7-1 success over Celtic.

They have won three consecutive Ligue 1 matches, including a comfortable 4-1 win over Nantes last week.
