Paris - France's Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches will go ahead as scheduled this weekend, Sports Minister Thierry Braillard told AFP on Tuesday, a week after the terror attacks in Paris.

Last weekend's sporting programmes in and around Paris were cancelled in the wake of Friday's terrorist assault on the French capital which killed 129 people.

One of the attacks was on the Stade de France, where three terrorists and one person died, as France were playing Germany in an international friendly.

LFP president Frederic Thiriez will attand the talks before flying to London for France's friendly against England at Wembley.
