Ligue 1 Winners and Podium Configuration will be Known on SundayPublished May 23, 2021 by Florin P
Lille, PSG and Monaco play decisive matches in their quest to pick up valuable points that can make them the latest Ligue 1 champions.
This was one of the most competitive Ligue 1 seasons in the last decade and it is playing its last chapter on Sunday. Lille are in complete control of their fate and with a victory on the road against Angers they will win the trophy. PSG are still in the race with the second chance, but they depend on the leader to fail. Meanwhile, Monaco need an exceptional turn of events to have any chance of winning the title.
Lille has to Overcome one Last Hurdle
Lille played beautifully throughout the season and managed to pick up valuable points both at home and on the road. Now they play away from home but they will face Angers, which is a struggling team with no clear objective in mind. The visitors have no players injured or suspended, which means that they can field a competitive starting formation. bet365 Sports justly prices them at 7/10, while the hosts get odds of 8/1, which reflects their lack of form and motivation.
Monaco Play Must-Win Away Match
Monaco will play on the road against Lens, a team that still hopes to play in Europa league next season. This means that the home side will defend fiercely and will do everything in its power to stop the visitors in their tracks. Even so, Monaco are the best team and with no key players missing, they are expected to pick up all three points. You can only expect odds of 3/5 if you bet on the visitors at 888 Sport, while a surprising home win is valued at 4/1.
PSG Keep Hopes Alive with Brest Win
PSG have nobody but themselves to blame but themselves for squandering so many excellent opportunities. They lost valuable points against weaker opponents and are now in second place with no control of what happens next. All they can do is to win on the road against Brest, a team trying to avoid relegation. The hosts will not go quietly into the night and odds of 10/1 on their victory are incredibly tempting. It is much better to side with the visitors, but don’t expect odds above 1/5 at bet365 Sports.
