Unbeaten Ligue 1 leaders Paris St Germain will resume domestic business against St Etienne on Sunday after producing a midweek Champions League masterclass.
PSG's 5-0 rout of Anderlecht was highlighted by a four-goal salvo from star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose hat-trick came during 19 first-half minutes.
Coach Laurent Blanc urged caution, though, after PSG transferred their outstanding league form on to the European stage.
``This competition (Champions League) is very hard to win. It is certainly the best competition, but it is very difficult,'' Blanc told www.uefa.com
``We must go stage by stage. The first step is to advance to the knockout rounds. After that the draw is important, so we should not look too far ahead.''
PSG, whose league record this season shows seven wins and three draws from 10 starts, now head to Stade Geoffroy-Guichard for an appointment with a St Etienne team six places and eight points below them.
Blanc's men will be going for a seventh consecutive win in all competitions but the home side will be encouraged by their 3-2 victory over Lorient last time out which broke a sequence of four games without a win.
``PSG is the biggest team in the league with world-class players, '' St Etienne midfielder Fabien Lamoine told www.asse.fr
``They are masters at keeping the ball, and I believe they are one of the best five teams in Europe.
``We are not there to watch them play. We will show our strengths and values, and anything is possible in a game, especially at home.''
