The Club of the Principality currently find themselves in fourth place in the French top flight.

However, things are tight at the summit of the table and Leonardo Jardim’s side are only six points off league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Monaco also have a game in hand, and if they win that fixture—against Montpellier Herault Sport Club—then they will be right in the mix at the top of the table.

Not only are ASM looking to challenge for the title, they will also be keen to secure qualification (and a return) to the Champions League.

Ocampos joined Monaco in 2012, but moved to Marseille on loan this season.

He, as well as anyone, is aware of the threat posed by Jardim’s highly-motivated collective.

“Monaco are getting dangerously close. If they win their game in hand, they’ll be a point behind,” the Argentine began, as reported by Ligue1.com.

“We have to be careful. I know Monaco well, I know the club and the players. They have a lot of quality.”

The Red and Whites kick-off this weekend’s fixtures with a home match against fifth-place AS Saint-Etienne.
