French Ligue 1

Ligue 1 title race the closest in Europe as Lyon, PSG, Marseille keep stumbling

Lyon head coach Hubert Fournier believes that his title-chasing side missed a big opportunity to put distance between themselves and second-placed PSG as they fell 2-1 to Lille in Ligue 1.

"After you." "No, you first." "No, you go, really." "No, no, please, I insist."

For the past three weeks, Ligue 1 has become the most courteous league in Europe. Three teams are just waltzing around the top of the table with nobody seeming to want to grab it and win it. The table is neatly poised: Lyon (54 points), Paris Saint-Germain (53 points) and Marseille (50 points) just keep offering lifelines and gifting each other the opportunity to hang around.

With just four points between the top...

Javier Pastore, Edinson Cavani draw blanks as PSG miss chance to go top

Javier Pastore, left, and Edinson Cavani, right, both squandered opportunities to put Paris Saint-Germain ahead.

Paris Saint-Germain passed up a golden opportunity to take top spot in Ligue 1 for the first time this season with a 0-0 draw away at AS Monaco on Sunday.

There is no guarantee that Les Parisiens will get another chance like it anytime soon, as title rivals Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais both dropped points to open it up for PSG at the summit. However, Laurent Blanc's men could only labour to a goalless draw at Stade Louis II, failing to take advantage of some weary Monaco legs after...

Heroic Monaco all that stand between rested PSG and Ligue 1 summit

PSG captain Thiago Silva believes his side can retain their Ligue 1 title for the third straight year.

Paris Saint-Germain will be aiming to capitalise on some weary legs when they take on Monaco at the Stade Louis II on Sunday. Leonardo Jardim's men secured an unexpected 3-1 first-leg win away at Arsenal in their UEFA Champions League round-of-16 tie on Wednesday, but Les Monegasques were stretched to their limit by injuries and a suspension. Defending French champions PSG will be looking to exploit the fatigue incurred during that heroic performance, as Laurent Blanc's men have had a whole week...

Thiago Motta's absence a blessing in disguise for Paris Saint-Germain

PSG captain Thiago Silva believes his side can retain their Ligue 1 title for the third straight year.

Last season, Thiago Motta was one of the key factors behind Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 title and Coupe de la Ligue successes.

Often unsung because of his unglamorous style of play, the Italian international midfielder's metronomic passing, tough tackling and intimidating presence meant he was integral to the success enjoyed by Laurent Blanc's men. However, this campaign, Motta has become a burden, and his current spell out of the team through injury is actually doing PSG some good.

At 32 years...

Rabiot double eases PSG past Toulouse to pressure title rivals

PSG head coach Laurent Blanc contends that his side are not motivated by Ligue 1 competition.

Paris Saint-Germain hit top spot in Ligue 1 -- at least temporarily -- thanks to a 3-1 win over Toulouse at Parc des Princes on Saturday. Despite a number of injuries and suspensions impairing coach Laurent Blanc's team selection, Le President still managed to name a strong enough starting XI to see off Alain Casanova's strugglers. Adrien Rabiot scored twice for PSG before Wissam Ben Yedder pulled one back for Le Tefece, only for PSG captain Thiago Silva to put the game beyond doubt with a third.

Paris Saint-Germain prepare for Chelsea clash with awful Caen display

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti disagrees with Alejandro Moreno, saying that PSG should not be written off just yet ahead of their Champions League round of 16 match against Chelsea, as he feels the side can turn its fortunes around.

There are times when you should think twice before tweeting. We've all been caught in the excitement of composing 140 characters, thinking it was a good idea at the time or was incredibly witty. We've all had the proverbial egg on our face at one time or another due to a social media faux pas. But most likely never on a par with what Paris Saint-Germain experienced on Saturday afternoon.

In the 87th minute, the team was 2-0 up at home against Caen (14th in the table) but with only nine men after...
