Big spenders play out draw

THE showdown between Ligue One big-spenders Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco finished 1-1 last night at the Parc Des Princes.

Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic put PSG in front on five minutes, but Radamel Falcao, signed for £52m from Atletico Madrid in the summer, headed Monaco’s equaliser on 20 minutes.

Elsewhere, a thigh injury suffered in the warm-up before Real Madrid’s 4-1 win over Getafe cost £85.3m star Gareth Bale the chance to make his home debut.
