Monaco’s footballers turned in a lacklustre performance on Friday, with a 1-1 draw against newly-promoted Amiens, raising a question mark over next weekend’s meeting in Monaco with league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Meanwhile, PSG’s 4-1 victory against Nantes on Saturday put the Paris side six points clear of Monaco in France’s Ligue 1. Edison Cavani, who scored two of the four goals for the winners said: “”We aren’t thinking about Monaco, just about winning.” Kylian Mbappe was benched for the game.

PSG have a Champions League game against Celtic mid-week, and whether that will dampen their performance in Monaco on Sunday remains to be seen. Monaco have their own Champions League challenge during the week as they host RB Leipzig at Stade Louis II on Tuesday night.
