Monaco turned the table at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the second half and succeeded in converting a two-goal deficit in the first half into a precious 3-2 victory in the second half, from their match today in the eleventh stage of the French Football League, which today also witnessed Bordeaux’s victory over its host Rennes.
