PSG trip to Monaco canceled because of bad weather

PARIS (AP) — The French league match between Monaco and leader Paris Saint-Germain has been postponed to a later date because of the bad weather hitting the Principality and south-east France. Monaco was set to host PSG at the Stade Louis II on Sunday night but the adverse conditions led local authorities to cancel the game as a precautionary measure after surrounding areas were put on alert for rain and flooding.

The French football league confirmed the cancellation in a statement and said its competition committee will gather to set a new date for the game. With one match in hand, PSG has a five-point lead over second-placed Marseille at the top of the French league standings. Monaco lags 15 points behind the leaders.
