​PSG star  Marco Verratti took a football to the face in PSG training on Friday, when a poor touch from teammate Angel Di Maria saw the ball fly up and smash him right in the face, something which his teammates found quite funny.

The Italian international has been in fine form for the current Ligue 1 title holders, which has attracted lots of interest from big clubs around Europe looking to prize him away from the French giants. Hopefully the ball to his face won't affect those performances. 

However, the team might want to stop all the giggles and concentrate on leap frogging Monaco into top spot in the league, as they currently sit 2nd, joint on points with their rivals, but they have played one more than the current league leaders. 

They travel to Metz on Tuesday, which before that they could see themselves three points behind Monaco who play on Saturday, so they have a real battle on their hands to win the league and battle between the two big spenders.
