It’s been another successful Ligue 1 campaign so far for champions Paris Saint-Germain. They sit top of the table as the clubs enjoy their winter break, seven points clear of Marseille in second.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have won 15 of their 18 games this season, losing the other three. They have, however, managed 43 goals, conceding just ten. The Paris based outfit are in search of their third successive title, and are currently 1/250 to do just that.
Marseille are currently 80/1 to cause an upset to the system and win their tenth Ligue 1 trophy. Both Lille and Lyon are available at 150/1.
It’s 250/1 for Monaco to somehow get out of their current rut and win their first title since the 2016/17 season.
Meanwhile at the bottom of the table, both Nimes and Toulouse share last spot on just 12 points. They are 1/3 and 4/9 to get relegated at the end of the campaign.
Joining them could be Metz, who are available at 9/4 to suffer from the dreaded drop. Also in danger are Dijon at 13/5 and Amiens at 3/1.
Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder is certainly enjoying life back in France. He joined from Sevilla in the summer, and leads the scoring charts this season with 13. He’s currently 11/2 to finish as the league’s top scorer.
But he finds himself competing with the attacking PSG trio of Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi and Neymar. Mbappe has 11 for the season and is currently 5/4 to clinch the French top scorer trophy.
Icardi has nine and is available at 4/1 to be top scorer, while Neymar has eight and is currently 5/1.
Also in the running are Lille’s Victor Osimhen, Lyon’s Moussa Dembele and Habib Diallo of Metz. They all have ten for the campaign, and are available at 10/1, 12/1 and 50/1 respectively.
Former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay can be backed at 14/1 to end the season as the league’s top scorer. And Edinson Cavani finds himself at 33/1.
PSG look to be strolling their way to their ninth league title, with their star players all in fine form heading into the new year.
Marseille are their nearest competitor as we approach the halfway stage, but it looks set to be another hugely successful campaign for the giants of French football.
