France – Ligue 1
Match start: 17:00 (GMT+1)
We did it! Last Tuesday according to the results of the 31 matchday the team of Unai Emery had gained 3 points (2:3) from Metz and caught Monaco;
Monaco – 77 (32), PSG – 77 (33), Nice – 73 (33), Olympique Lyonnais – 54 (32) ..
But here there are two major advantages of the team of Leonardo Jardim.
Procedures of the elite French football League
Firstly, the red and whites has one more game and the catch-up match of the 31 matchday with Saint-Étienne Monaco will spend only on the 17th of May. And if two leaders will continue to gain points the current dual power maintains till the crucial game.
Secondly, according to the procedures of Ligue 1 with the same amount of points in two or more teams the main secondary factor is the best goal difference of scored and missed goals. And here PSG is slightly behind its rival (+46 vs +63).
The rest of the matches of the championship
It is obvious that the team of Unai Emery won’t be able to catch the red and whites according to this factor. That is why PSG can hope the Monaco will make some mistakes during one of the remaining matches.
The champion is going to meet with 5 opponents: Montpellier (on the 22 of April), Nice (on the 30th of April), Bastia (on the 6th of May), Saint-Étienne (on the 14th of May) and Caen (on the 20th of May). The particular importance here has the match with Nice. It is obvious that debutant of next Champions League is dreaming to finish this season by great winning and can spoil the mood of PSG fans.
But the team will face the match with the hosts of Allianz Riviera during 35 matchday. Now the team of Unai Emery is going to meet with much more weaker opponent.
Montpellier was the winner of the championship of France in 2012. But the team has lost its glory and now it is not very serious rival for Paris club. Even if you bear in mind the fact that PSG is lacking 4 injured players: Hatem Ben Arfa, Julian Draxler, Layvin Kurzawa and Grzegorz Krychowiak.
PSG – 1,20; draw – 9,00, Montpellier – 17,00;
