The visitors are joint-leaders while the Blues are third on the table. Games between the pair over the years have always proven to be fiercely contested.

Failure to secure maximum points will be a third successive winless game for Bayern Munich.ITALYAC Milan needs to get their season back on track starting with a home game against Roma. Coach Vincenzo Montella, a Roman hero, and now manager of AC Milan has to put whatever affiliations and connections he has with the capital club, in a game whose outcome could decide his fate in-charge of the Rossoneri.League leaders Napoli are home to Cagilari in Sunday’s early kickoff. It has being a wonderful season for the Marek Hamsik captained team who are unbeaten and have set the pace in the league. They should have little trouble in blowing away a Cagilari team that have struggled both home and away this season.FRANCESecond-place Monaco will aim to bounce back from UEFA Champions league disappointment on home ground when they host Montpellier at the Stade Louis II on Friday night. The 13th-place side come into this game on the back of an impressive scoreless home draw against PSG last weekend and could fancy their chances of nicking another point off a battered Monaco team.Paris Saint-Germain are at home to Bordeaux in a game the leaders need to make up for last weekend’s shocking away draw. Coach Unai Emery can once again count on the services of Neymar who is available after missing the last game due to a slight toe complaint, as the Parisians have the full complement of Neymar, Edison Cavani and Kylian Mbappe all rearing to go from the start.OGC Nice and Marseille round up French Ligue 1 matches on Sunday night at Allianz Riviera.
