Lille kicks off the football weekend with a win over RC Lens: 3-0. The leader is now 4 points ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, which may still narrow that gap this game round. PSG will take on Rennes on Sunday evening. After this weekend there are only 2 rounds to go in the French Ligue 1.
Burak Yilmaz (twice) and Jonathan David scored a visit to Lens. The 35-year-old Yilmaz has already scored 15 times this season. The counter of 21-year-old David stands at 12 goals.
Previously, AS Monaco and Olympique Lyon also competed for the title, but they can now forget the medal. Monaco is 8 points behind (with one more match credit), Lyon is 9 points. Only in theory do they still have a chance to win the French national title.
PSG has a subscription to the championship in France. In the past 8 years they became champions 7 times. Between 2013 and 2020, in addition to PSG, only AS Monaco became champion once.
