Milan v Internazionale and Marseille v PSG serve up a real Super Sunday

It is not often that El Clásico has to fight for its status as the most glamorous fixture in Europe, but then this is no ordinary weekend on the continent because battling Barcelona and Real Madrid for top billing on Sunday are the Milan derby and a huge match at the top of Ligue 1 between Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain. There have been worse support acts, although because all three matches overlap each other there is one dilemma: trying to find the time to watch them.

Everywhere you look, there are intriguing subplots, whether it be the clash of old and new money in France, or how the Milanese sides will cope against each other on a wretched San Siro pitch, where both have suffered this season.
