PARIS – Paris Saint-Germain go to Ligue 1’s bottom club Troyes on Saturday with the focus on their bid to win a first-ever domestic league and cup double following their exit from the Champions League in midweek.
The French capital club bowed out of Europe’s leading club competition at the quarterfinal stage on Wednesday, losing on away goals to Barcelona after a 1-1 draw in the second leg at the Camp Nou.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side came agonisingly close to beating the team regarded as the best in the world in recent years but, despite the disappointment at seeing their Champions League dream ended, there were plenty of positives to take from their continental campaign.
Now they will be aiming to strengthen their position at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they go to Troyes before a French Cup quarterfinal tie away to Evian next Wednesday.
PSG are seven points clear of Marseille at the summit with just seven games remaining, and a first league title since 1994 is now very much in sight.
“We were knocked out by the best team in the world, but without losing,” said sporting director Leonardo, after PSG held the Catalans to a 2-2 draw in last week’s first leg.
The outstanding game of the weekend in Ligue 1 is on Sunday night, when in-form Lille play host to second-placed Marseille at the Grand Stade, which will be filled to it’s near-50 000 capacity.
