Your Guide to Sunday’s Ligue 1 Action

Sunday: Troyes vs PSG (13:00 GMT)

PSG can wrap up a fourth consecutive title on Sunday afternoon as they visit Troyes at the Stade de l’Aube. In terms of the league table, this fixture represents the biggest mismatch of the season, as the runaway leaders face a side cast adrift at the bottom; just as PSG are bound to claim yet another title triumph, Troyes are destined for relegation. The hosts have lost six of their last seven and won just twice in the league all season.

PSG, though, won’t care one bit about their opponent’s troubles; the visitors are in town with only one target in mind. The capital club have seemingly taken their foot off the gas in the league recently, winning just one of their last four, but with the chance to wrap up the title this weekend, anything other than a win would be viewed as a major upset.

Earlier this season, PSG beat Troyes 4-1 at the Parc des Princes.

Sunday: Nantes vs Angers (16:00 GMT)

Nantes will be aiming to keep in touch with the top three as they take on Angers at the Stade de la Beaujoire. The hosts responded to their heavy 4-1 defeat to Rennes with a goalless draw away to Bastia in midweek, but if they are to have any hopes of claiming a spot in Europe next season, then wins are a necessity.

Angers, meanwhile, are in awful form right now, having won only one of their last nine league outings. That run of results has seen them drop from second to 11th in the standings, with any chance of European qualification now looking extremely slim.

Earlier this season, these two teams played out a goalless draw at the Stade Jean-Bouin.

Sunday: Rennes vs Lyon (20:00 GMT)

Rennes and Lyon clash at Roazhon Park on Sunday evening in a match that could prove pivotal in the race for Champions League qualification. The hosts head into the match one point and one place below their opponents, but do have the added confidence from thrashing Nantes 4-1 in their last league outing.

Lyon, meanwhile, have won five of their last six in the league and sit two points below Nice, who currently possess the league’s final Champions League spot. They too won convincingly in their last outing, as they put five past lowly Guingamp, and will be out to deliver a major blow to one of their rivals here.

Earlier this season, Rennes beat Lyon 2-1 at the Stade de Gerland.
