After a painful success against Montpellier (2-2, 6 shots on goal to 5), Wednesday, in the semi-final of the Coupe de France, PSG returns to Ligue 1 this Sunday evening.
With one goal: to fill up on points against Reims, hoping for a misstep from Lille.
Two days from the end of the season, Lille, for their part, are on the verge of an incredible feat.
But before dreaming of a title, you have to beat ASSE.
In the event of a defeat or draw for PSG against Reims, a victory could allow Lille to be crowned on Sunday evening.
The live pre-match
In Lille, fans on fire.
Several thousand supporters greeted the Dogues bus at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium.
The fans, present around the enclosure more than three hours before kick-off, sang at the top of their lungs and lit hundreds of smoke bombs while waiting to see their heroes.
Who does not jump is not Lille ❤️

Le Losc is almost there.
The people of Lille have their destiny in hand and the fourth league title in their history within reach.
To conclude a remarkable course in style, they must first beat Saint-Etienne, in the North.
Paris no longer has a choice.
Four days after a painful qualification for the final of the Coupe de France, PSG returns to L1 this Sunday evening.
At the Parc des Princes, Mauricio Pochettino's men must dominate Reims, which has nothing more to play this season.

Title race and final sprint.
These are the key words of this 37th and penultimate day of Ligue 1. If it wins against ASSE and PSG cracks against Reims, Losc can already be crowned champion of France.
To hope for a miracle, the Parisians would have to take three more points than the Northerners in the last two meetings.
20 hours. Good evening and welcome to this exceptional evening of Ligue 1. On the program, the meetings of PSG-Reims and Lille-Saint-Etienne, with the title of champion in sight. Kick-off scheduled for 9 p.m.
