PSG will look to finally secure the Ligue One title and the potential return of Neymar will certainly increase their chances to finally cross the finish line. They will host Monaco who are still in somewhat of a relegation battle, but currently sit four points clear of the relegation zone. Lille, who currently sit in 2nd place, will look to increase their lead over 3rd place Lyon with a win over 15th place Toulouse. St. Etienne travel to Reims with both teams still hoping to get into that Europa League spot and, finally, Amiens travel to Nantes looking to get seven points clear of the relegation zone.
Here are my two best bets for Sunday’s action in France.
PSG (-278) vs Monaco (+650) – Draw: (+400)
PSG haven’t won a Ligue One game in their last three chances, but all they need is one more point to secure the Ligue One title. PSG have dropped just two points all season at home, and it was in their most recent home game against Strasbourg, but the recent poor form can be attributed to really having nothing to play for. The French giants may get most of their squad back Sunday, besides Mbappe, so that should be a big help for PSG. Monaco looked destined to be relegated, but a recent string of getting 17 points in their last 10 games has seen them get four points clear of the relegation zone. On the road this season Monaco have been able to get just 17 points in 15 outings. PSG finally clinch Ligue One with a win Sunday.
Toulouse (+300) vs Lille (+104) – Draw: (+210)
Lille jumped all over PSG, their last time out, winning 5-1 and inching them closer and closer to that automatic Champions League group stage position. Lille have been the second best team all season in France and in their last 15 games are just one point behind league leaders PSG. They don’t have any hope of actually winning the league title, but a win Sunday will almost certainly secure 2nd place for Lille. Toulouse have gotten seven points in their last five games and currently see themselves seven points clear of the relegation zone. A win on Sunday would certainly see Toulouse ensure their safety, but the club has been one of the worst h6ome teams in the league all season getting just 19 points in 16 games. Lille dominate and get the win on Sunday.
