PARIS (AP) - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has resumed light training, and Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc will be hoping that is enough to spark a lackluster attack.

PSG will play Sunday against second-place Saint-Etienne, a team that has caused the defending French champions problems over the past two seasons.

Ibrahimovic’s return should take the pressure off Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani, who is still struggling to find his best form since joining PSG last season.

Bordeaux will be looking for a fourth straight win when it hosts Bastia on Sunday.

Here are some things to know about this weekend’s games.

SUCCESSFUL SAGNOL

Three straight wins, entertaining football, and a lot of goals.

That is exactly what observers expected from big-spending Paris Saint-Germain this season, but it is Bordeaux that is producing some eye-catching performances.

Bordeaux coach Willy Sagnol, who left his coaching job with France’s under-21 side to join Bordeaux in the offseason, has taken to top-flight coaching with remarkable ease.

After starting the campaign with a 1-0 win at Montpellier, Bordeaux followed with a 4-1 rout of Monaco - the French league’s other big spender. The team then beat Nice 3-1 last weekend.

Sagnol, who played 58 times for France as an attack-minded right back, has shown faith in 21-year-old Uruguayan forward Diego Rolan, who struggled to break into the team over the past two seasons.

Rolan scored two goals and had an assist in three games, while strike partner Cheick Dibate has also scored twice.
