PSG has temporary lead of three points over Monaco, who dominated the Ligue 1 table this season for most of the time. But, Principality club has played two games lesser than the Parisian giants, and a victory over Lyon for them will brought them back on top with a better goal difference.
PSG can extend their lead to the next week as well, because of the intensity of the Sunday’s game between Lyon and Monaco. Monaco will return to domestic action after registering a 6-3 aggregate victory over Borussia Dortmund in Uefa Champions League quarterfinal tie, whereas Lyon will be coming after a penultimate extra-time penalty shootout (7-6) thriller against Besiktas in Europa League quarterfinal.
Both team will be returning to domestic action after a massive game in European competition. Monaco would like to snatch a victory to ease pressure on themselves, before meeting PSG on Wednesday in French Cup semifinal. PSG has already blown Monaco’s domestic treble dream with their Coupe de la Ligue victory over them, and they may end their double hope as well. Monaco will be aware of that, and will do everything to deny PSG win any other domestic title this season.
