Sports Mole previews the Ligue 1 clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.

Paris Saint-Germain host Monaco on Sunday evening as two of the wealthiest teams in the world go head to head in France's capital.

Both sides have started their domestic campaign in fine style, remaining undefeated during their opening five fixtures, and both will be keen to strike an early blow in the race for the Ligue 1 title.

PSG lie two points behind Monaco, but manager Laurent Blanc will be confident that strikers Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic can net against a veteran Monaco defence.

However, Claudio Ranieri's side have conceded just two goals this season, registering three clean sheets in moving one point clear of Saint-Etienne at the top of the table.

Ranieri will be hoping that Radamel Falcao can add to his four Ligue 1 goals as he continues to impress after his summer move from Atletico Madrid.
