PSG are considered 5/4 favourites to beat Monaco as the top two sides clash in Ligue 1 whilst Benfica and Sporting clash in the Lisbon derby in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Over the past year, both Monaco and PSG have spent hundreds of millions in a bid to turn the struggling sides into powerhouses on both the domestic and continental scene and now both sides meet in a top of the table clash in Ligue 1.
Monaco find themselves at the sharp end of Ligue 1 in their first season back and currently sit five points behind PSG in second place as the second half of the season gets into full swing.
With Falcao out for the rest of the season, Monaco’s management will need to decide whether they stick with reliable striker Emmanuel Riviere for Sunday’s game having scored once againlast week against Lorient.
If not, they could turn to a more experienced campaigner in Dimitar Berbatov as the Bulgarian would love to make a huge impact on his debut in Ligue 1 after joining on loan from Fulham.
However, it won’t be easy as PSG are once again sitting on top of Ligue 1 having lost just once all season long in domestic competition.
There are no selection worries for Laurent Blanc going into their trip down south with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani once again to lead the deadliest strikeforce in France.
The attacking line could be given even more chances to destroy their opponents as enigmatic playmaker Yohan Cabaye looks set to make his debut after joining last week from Newcastle.
Elsewhere in Europe, many eyes will turn to Portugal where Benfica are set to take on arch-rivals and title rivals Sporting in the Derby De Lisboa in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Benfica find themselves currently on top of the table in Portugal but they own just a two point lead over their Lisbon rivals going into Sunday’s decisive derby.
Many Benfica fans will be hoping that the experience of players such as Luisao and the return of explosive striker Oscar Cardozo will be enough to help their side stay top at the end of the weekend.
Sporting Lisbon find themselves in their best form for years and are currently placed in second on the table knowing that a win would put them on top come the end of the weekend.
It’s likely that Fredy Montero will provide the main threat as the Colombian leads the Liga Sagres scoring charts with 13 goals this season and William Carvalho’s consistent man of the match performances will make them a real threat when they arrive at the Estadio de Luz.
