The results of the title race in France: Lille is a Champion, PSG hegemony interrupted, Monaco lucky to finish in the 3rd

For the second time in nine years, Paris-Saint-Germain were not the champions of France and it was not even Monaco who won Ligue 1 in 2017. The winner of the tournament was rather a modest Lille, who fought for survival four years ago and were banned from registering newcomers due to financial problems. In the last round, Lille, who would only be satisfied with a victory, comfortably beat Angers, scoring two goals in the first half. The result was hard to predict, but if you would like to try next time, consider using offers at bookmaker-ratings.com/bonuses/.  Regardless, the richer and more powerful PSG and Monaco claimed the second and third places respectively.

Aurier – PSG likely to excel in UCL this season due to less pressure

Tottenham Hotspur defender and former PSG player Serge Aurier believes that the Ligue 1 giants are in a comfortable position to succeed in this season's UEFA Champions League as they are not under pressure.
