PSG will be crowned Saturday April 23 against Lens, announces Florian Gazan
Every Saturday in RTL’s 7 a.m. newspaper, Florian Gazan launches into a football bet with humor, irony, provocation, discrepancy but always with information. Saturday April 23, he announces it in his big odds: PSG will be crowned champion of France at the end of his match against Lens in the evening (9 p.m.).
On paper, the capital club needs the point of the draw to no longer be caught mathematically by Marseille. But for the columnist, even « a defeat would be enough, if I may say so, since before this 34th day of Ligue 1, Paris is 15 points ahead of Marseille. And there are five games left to play, so 15 points to distribute. »
« So, even if Paris lost all their matches, OM would have to win all of theirs, continues Gazan. And still it wouldn’t be enough : certainly, the Phocaeans would come back up to the points of the Parisians, but the PSG having a largely advantageous goal difference, +45 while OM are at +22, it would still be crowned champion of France thanks to the goal average » .
Paris won’t beat Paris
And champion five days from the end then, would that be a record? “No, Paris will not beat Paris since the record is held by PSG. PSG had become champion eight days before the end, on March 13 (…) Well it was an amazing season for Paris which had finished 31 points ahead of 2nd, Lyon, with only two defeats in the season and 102 goals scored”.
