Monaco v Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain have just one win in four league matches

Paris St-Germain missed the chance to go top of Ligue 1 after wasting several opportunities in a 0-0 draw at Monaco.

Without suspended top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, PSG went close early on when Edinson Cavani's shot was saved.

Ezequiel Lavezzi pushed an effort wide from close range and turned provider for Javier Pastore after the break, but his strike was held by Danijel Subasic.

Monaco had just one shot on goal but they frustrated their visitors, who now trail leaders Lyon by a point.

Laurent Blanc's side will rue finding the target with only two of their 12 shots at Stade Louis II and had seven corners to the one won by Monaco, who were so impressive in their 3-1 Champions League win at Arsenal on Wednesday.

Their wastefulness in front of goal means the Parisians have just one win in four league outings.

The hosts, who used Dimitar Berbatov from the bench, move fourth, but the title race looks set to be a three-horse race between champions PSG, Lyon and Marseille, none of whom won this weekend.

Next weekend, the leaders travel to Montpellier, who were the only side in the top six to win this weekend, beating Nice 2-1.
