PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain is on a five-match winning streak without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, though none of the victories was entertaining and the side still looks poorer without its talismanic striker. Allen Craig Jersey .So there was relief on Thursday when Ibrahimovic returned to training following a nagging heel injury, increasing speculation he could play against Marseille on Sunday, when a win would move second-place PSG to within one point of its bitter rival.Should PSG lose its unbeaten start to the season, however, resurgent Lyon could move into second place with a home win against struggling Guingamp.Here are some things to know about this weekends French league games:___ZLATAN CLOSE TO RETURN: PSG coach Laurent Blanc is optimistic Ibrahimovic may return to play a part in the table-topping clash against league leader Marseille.Ibrahimovic has not played since the 1-1 home draw against Lyon on Sept. 21, and his heel injury has kept him out for much longer than was first expected.Things have been evolving very well over the last few days. Were seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now, Blanc said. He has started joining in training and hes been doing some running. He hasnt lost that much fitness in cardiovascular terms. If things continue to improve over the next few days anything is possible.Even if Ibrahimovic does not recover, PSG is well off in the forward department, with striker Edinson Cavani scoring in each of his past four games.DEFENDING CABAYE: PSG captain Thiago Silva has leapt to the defence of midfielder Yohan Cabaye, who has been in and out of the side since joining from Newcastle in January.Cabayes poor performance in last weekends gritty 2-1 win at Lorient saw him heavily criticized in the French media.Although a regular in midfield for France, Cabaye has struggled for PSG, scoring only one league goal in 25 games. He has not played a full 90 minutes so far, and was hauled off after one hour against Lorient.PSGs problem isnt Cabaye, Silva said. The problem was the match against Lorient and especially the first half, because none of the players did well.BARREN SPELL: Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is the leagues joint top-scorer, but he needs to end a barren run at Paris Saint-Germains stadium to add to that tally on Sunday.Gignac has never scored at Parc des Princes in eight previous outings with Marseille and his former clubs Toulouse and Lorient.The France forward has made his best start to a domestic season with 10 goals in 12 games, putting him level with Lyons Alexandre Lacazette.But Gignac has looked slightly jaded in his last two games, failing to score in the 1-0 loss at Lyon and the 2-1 home win against Lens.Two seasons ago, he scored two superb goals as Marseille drew 2-2 at home to PSG, with Ibrahimovic netting twice for the visitors.ANTONETTIS RETURN? Frederic Antonetti is in talks with Bastia over the vacant coaching position after former France midfielder Claude Makelele was fired on Monday.The Corsican club is 19th going into Saturdays game against mid-table Montpellier.Antonetti, who is Corsican, held long talks on Tuesday with Bastia president Pierre-Marie Geronimi.The 53-year-old Antonetti started his coaching career with Bastia in 1994, and had a second spell with the club.I need to take the time to think. There are a lot of things to take into consideration and I know Bastia only too well, Antonetti said. Its not an easy situation, and Bastia is the club of my heart, but I will give the directors my answer very quickly.He also coached Rennes from 2009-2013, and had spells managing at Nice and Saint-Etienne. Chris Sale Jersey . - Rookie Tesho Akindele scored three goals and Fabian Castillo added two in FC Dallas 5-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night. Wade Boggs Jersey .Y. -- Syracuse guard Trevor Cooney was mired in a shooting slump, and his woes coincided with a late-season swoon by the Orange. http://www.redsoxjerseyauthenticshop.com/authentic-nomar-garciaparra-red-sox-jersey/ .

Harris scored 20 of his 24 points in the second half, helping the Spartans beat Indiana 71-66 on Tuesday night to remain unbeaten in the Big Ten. "Hes just got to take over games," Spartans coach Tom Izzo said. "He is that good, to be very blunt and honest about it. What an incredible performance by him with just 13 shots. Hes probably the most efficient player in college basketball." Michigan State (18-1, 7-0) has won 11 straight games, extending their best one-loss start in a season in school history despite playing poorly at times with an injury-depleted roster. "Were 18-1 now," Travis Trice said. "Thats all we care about. " The Hoosiers (12-7, 2-4) have lost two straight and four of six. After beating then-No. 3 Wisconsin at home last week, they lost at home to Northwestern. "Im proud of my team because I think we did a great job the last couple days of establishing even more togetherness," Hoosiers coach Tom Crean said. Michigan State went on a 10-2 run to take a 62-52 lead with 4:29 left, but led by just four points after Yogi Ferrell made a 3-pointer with 36 seconds remaining. Keith Appling made one of two free throws on the ensuing possession and Stanford Robinsons runner pulled the Hoosiers within three points. Trice made two free throws with 13.7 seconds left to give the Spartans a five-point lead, essentially sealing their 18th win in 19 home games against Indiana. "Were finding ways to win and other teams around the country are finding ways to lose," Izzo said. The Spartans were missing perhaps their best player, Adreian Payne, for a fourth straight game with a sprained right foot. Izzo said Payne wants to play Saturday at home against No. 21 Michigan, the only other Big Ten team without a conference loss, but the senior standout is questionable at best because he just started to run Monday on a weight-bearing treadmill. "He could be day to day for two weeks," Izzo said. The Hoosiers didnt have a key player, senior forward Will Sheehey, in tthe starting lineup for the first time this season after he injured an ankle against the Wildcats. Dustin Pedroia Jersey. Austin Etherington started the first game of his career in Sheeheys place, giving the team a second sophomore in a lineup with three freshmen. "Im proud of the way we played without Will," Crean said. "Everybody that went into the game impacted the game." Ferrell scored 14 of his 19 points in the second half. He is leading the Big Ten in scoring with a 19-point average in conference games. Indianas Noah Vonleh had 13 points and 13 rebounds. He was named Big Ten freshman of the week on Monday for the second straight time and sixth this season. Michigan States Branden Dawson scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Appling, who appeared to play much of the game in pain, had eight points on 2-of-10 shooting after averaging nearly 18 points the previous seven games. Trice and Denzel Valentine both scored 10 points. Indiana led 28-27 at halftime on an eighth lead change after seven ties in a sloppy, closely contested first half. Midway through the first half, the teams had combined for more turnovers (10) than field goals (9). Harris had just four points on 2-of-5 shooting in the first half, missing his only 3-point attempt. He finished 8 of 13, connecting on 4 of 6 shots from beyond the arc. "I just wanted to come out in the second half and be aggressive and put some points on the board," Harris said. The Spartans started to play a little better in the second half, going on an 11-2 run to take a four-point lead in the middle of the half, but they couldnt sustain success against an inexperienced and scrappy team. "Indiana, I thought, outplayed us and we found a way to win," Izzo said. "Those young guys played well, played hard." Harris, who was recruited to stay in state to play for Indiana, scored a career-high 26 points to lead Michigan State to a 73-56 victory over the Hoosiers last month. He had five steals in both games against Indiana. "Knowing him as long as weve known him, he is as good as it gets it in the backcourt," Crean said.
