PARIS - Paris Saint-Germains fans are getting frustrated.Despite extending its unbeaten run to 22 games, PSG still trails league leader Marseille as the expensively-assembled side — featuring Zlatan Ibrahimovic and five players costing more than 40 million euros ($50 million) — struggles to dominate opponents in the French league.Wednesdays 1-1 draw at Lille was hardly encouraging with a big game coming up at Barcelona in the Champions League next week. Before that, PSG faces Nantes at home, while Marseille hosts Metz on Sunday.Here are some things to know about this weekends games:___BLANCS GAMBLEParis Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc is under the spotlight after deciding to rest striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic against Lille on Wednesday.The move seemed to backfire as PSG drew 1-1, missing several chances, and failed to overtake Marseille at the top of the league.Blanc justified leaving Ibrahimovic out by saying that he was keeping him fresh for Saturdays home game against Nantes and next Wednesdays trip to Barcelona in the Champions League. Although both sides are already qualified, that match will decide who finishes first in Group F.But the decision to rest the Sweden forward prompted surprise, and the dropped points against Lille led to questions of Blancs management, particularly given that Ibrahimovic needs plenty of games to recover his full fitness after only recently returning from nearly two months out with a heel injury.___MAKING AMENDSMarseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac will have a point to prove in Saturdays home game against Metz after his sloppy finishing on Tuesday.Gignac is Marseilles top scorer with 11 goals but he fluffed three good chances inside the last 10 minutes in the 1-1 draw at Lorient.Im a bit angry with myself, because I could have got the win for my team, said Gignac, who has scored only once in the past six games for Marseille. Sometimes they go in, sometimes they dont. But Im disappointed.Given that Paris Saint-Germain drew 1-1 at Lille the next day, Marseille could have moved futher ahead in the title race.___SCORING STREAKDaniel Wass is making a name for himself as a goal-scoring midfielder for unheralded Evian, and Lyons defenders will be keeping a close eye on him on Sunday.The 25-year-old Dane has scored in three straight games, with Evian wining those matches to move five points above the relegation zone.Wass cost Evian 1 million euros ($1.24 million) when he joined permanently from Benfica two seasons ago, having played the season before on loan. Evian coach Pascal Dupraz said this week that he expects Wass to join a much bigger club in the off-season.Lyons defence was sloppy in last weekends 3-0 loss at Saint-Etienne, and Wass will be confident of adding to his seven league goals so far.___SHARING THE BURDENThird-place Saint-Etienne has finally found a way to start scoring, netting five goals in the past two games after managing only six in the previous 10.The goals are being shared around, too, taking the scoring burden off Dutch striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.Defender Moustapha Sall, midfielder Renaud Cohade and Wolfswinkel were all on target in last weekends 3-0 home win against local rival Lyon, while defenders Florentin Pogba and Paul Baysse scored in Wednesdays 2-0 win at Montpellier.Christophe Galtiers side faces last-place Bastia on Saturday.___RISING RENNESLed by the strong wing play of Paul-Georges Ntep, fourth-place Rennes is gaining momentum after a difficult start to the season.Coach Philippe Montaniers side won only two of the first eight games and was languishing in 15th place in early October. The turnaround has seen Rennes win five in the past six and move above early-season pace-setter Bordeaux.Were compact and resilient, Montanier said. The defence is playing well, the midfields working hard and Ntep is in good form.The 22-year-old Ntep has scored seven league goals so far this season and set up four more, causing problems on both flanks with his pace and trickery.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist stood tall with 41 saves between the pipes, but it was defenceman Ryan McDonagh who got the first star of the game as he had a goal and an assist and now has two goals and four assists for six points in two games. Marcus Williams Jersey . Mueller is the grandson of the late Ron Lancaster, the Hall-of-Fame quarterback and longtime head coach in the CFL. Last season, Mueller was quarterbacks coach of the University of Regina Rams, his alma mater. .com) - The Carolina Panthers won for the first time in seven games last week, were without Cam Newton due to a car accident this week, but somehow sit atop the much-maligned NFC South. John Kuhn Jersey . The light-heavyweight champion and number one ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world is on an 11-fight UFC winning streak, the longest in the history of the weight class. Alvin Kamara Jersey . While coach Doc Rivers high-fived fans and pumped his fist at the crowd, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul quietly congratulated each other.Mike Morreales run as the head of the CFLPA could come to an end on Friday. With the players association in the midst of meetings in Las Vegas, a vote will be held on Friday to decide the CFLPAs presidency and other executive positions. Morreale, who assumed office in 2012, is being opposed by current Montreal Alouettes offensive lineman Scott Flory. Over a dozen player representatives are expected to cast ballots on Friday in what could end up greatly shapping the upcoming labour negotiations.dddddddddddd The CFL and CFLPAs current CBA expires just before the start of the 2014 season, set to begin on June 26. The Hamilton Spectator reports that a key issue that the players will fight for in upcoming negotiations is a link between revenue and the salary cap, similar to what exists in the NHL. This had existed in previous CBAs, but was conceded by the CFLPA in the last agreement signed in 2010.
