After a great victory in the Champions League PSG returns to Ligue 1
PSG will face Saint-Etienne on Sunday at 20h local time, away from home, for the 25th round of the French Championship. The Paris club, happy after a magnificent 2-0 win over Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday, returns to Ligue 1 to face fourth place on the table.
About the game, Italian Marco Verratti said: "Playing against Saint-Étienne is always complicated, at home they are hard to beat and especially this year they make a very good championship. We wear out in the Champions League, but we're going to win the match. "
The confrontation will bring two stories of the most striking of the French League. Saint-Étienne is one of the most traditional clubs in France and the biggest winner of Ligue 1 with ten titles. The PSG, more "young", founded in 1970, won seven, five of which were in the last eight years. With 40 points on the table, a victory for Saint-Étienne would bring the club closer to the Champions League. The PSG has 59 points (ten more than Lille, second place) and is the great favorite of the title.
