thumbnail Hello,

The Ligue 1 newcomers have made a fine start to life in the top flight and the striker is full of admiration for Claudio Ranieri's side

Girondins de Bordeaux star Henri Saivet has labelled Monaco "tactically perfect" ahead of the newly-promoted club's clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 favourites clash on Sunday at 21:00CET with the winner set to sit top of the table, while a draw will see les Rouge et Blanc hold on to top spot.

Bordeaux were beaten 2-0 by Claudio Ranieri's men on the opening matchday of the season and Saivet was gushing with praise over the table-toppers' work ethic, while praising the ability of PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Monaco attacker Radamel Falcao.

"These are two teams that go forward with pace and are beefy defensively," L'Equipe quote the forward, 22, as saying. "They are equal teams.

"I think Monaco are the better oiled side. They were tactically perfect [against us]. Everyone played as a team, everyone defended together.

"On the other hand, PSG's defensive options are pretty average. It can cripple them [if they get injuries] while Monaco are very strong in this area.

"Falcao is always moving, whereas Ibrahimovic is the opposite, though this when he can be the most dangerous.

"For me, though, there is no outright favourite. I just want to see a good game, the sort of game everybody is expecting."
