Bastia tests for PSG as Lyon opens new ground


PARIS: Paris Saint-Germain will hope the winter break has not removed any of their sharpness as the runaway Ligue 1 leaders welcome Bastia to the Parc des Princes on Friday (Saturday in Manila). PSG sat an enormous 19 points clear of the chasing pack at the season’s mid-way stage as they set a new record points tally for the first half of the campaign in France. Laurent Blanc’s side have not lost domestically since March last year and few will give Bastia a chance of ending that statistic in the capital, where Paris have been especially strong. The Corsicans sit just three points clear of the relegation zone but they have lost just one of their last six games, while PSG laboured to a 1-0 victory against fourth-tier minnows Wasquehal in the French Cup last weekend.
