Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
PSG will be aiming to keep their Ligue 1 title hopes alive when they take on Reims on Sunday evening. Les Parisiens dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Rennes, and, as a result, this has to go down as a must-win game for the star-studded capital club. Star attacker Kylian Mbappe returns from suspension, and it is no wonder the bookies see the reigning champions as hot favourites to win the match.
Presnel Kimpembe is banned for the match after he was sent off in the draw with Rennes. Les Rouges et Blancs, on the other hand, have little to play for in the season finale as they are five points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 37. Given the importance of the match for PSG, the underdogs are likely to return home empty-handed from the trip to Paris. All Dion Lopy, Moussa Doumbia, and Valon Berisha are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
