PSG Eyes Second-Successive Ligue 1 Title

MOST COMMENTED

Paris Saint-Germain could seal its second-successive Ligue 1 title without kicking a ball if second-place AS Monaco fails to beat relegation-threatened Ajaccio on Saturday. The defending French champ is 10 points ahead of Claudio Ranieri’s Monaco, which could seal second-place and direct qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League with a win and a Lille loss. If Monaco wins, then PSG would need to win at Sochaux on Sunday to secure what would be its second trophy in two weeks, after the French giant beat Lyon, 2-1, in the French League Cup final last week.

"We have had a magnificent 10 months,” PSG captain Thiago Silva said. “It would be a pity if we didn't finish off the job well." Victory for PSG on Sunday would also mean a new record point-total for a single season; Lyon holds the current record with 84 points, but PSG currently has 82 points and there are four games remaining.

While Monaco will want to secure second-place, the race for the third and final Champions League place, which requires qualification, could prove to be tricky for third-place Lille, as its remaining four games includes the visits of Bordeaux and PSG, as well as a tricky trip to Bastia. Lille is currently seven points ahead of fourth-place Saint-Etienne.
