    Ligue 1 Round-up: Top four all win to set up potential grandstand finish to season

    Topics: PSG, Monaco, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Ligue 1
    PSG, Lille, Monaco, and Lyon all won over the weekend as the Ligue 1 title race really starts to pick up pace.

    It's really getting interesting now. All four of the teams in contention for the Ligue 1 title - Lille, PSG, Monaco, and Lyon - won their respective games at the weekend. Lille, of course, are still on top, but Les Dogues will be feeling the pressure as PSG rebounded from their own loss last round. And one shouldn't discount Monaco, who are still going strong, as well as Lyon, who are still determined to have a say in proceedings.

    Let's look at what happened over this weekend's round of fixtures.

    Top five teams in Ligue 1 up to April 12

    The title race is really heating up! Here's how the top four look in Ligue 1, with Lens in a distant fifth:

    PSG respond in style: It was exactly the response Mauricio Pochettino needed after their loss to Lille. Although Les Parisiens were missing Neymar for their trip against Strasbourg, they really didn't need the Brazilian superstar, as Moise Kean was back in action. The former Juventus youngster marked his return with a goal as the capital giants cruised to a 4-1 win over their opponents to keep up pressure on Lille as they look to avoid seeing another team dethrone them as champions of France this season.

    Away advantage? As of April 12th, there have been 117 wins for the away side in Ligue 1. That's actually the highest amount in the league's history since its inception over 90 years ago. In addition, less than half of the 20 teams have scored more goals on home turf than they have in their travels - seven, in fact. 

    Top Ligue 1 matches: April 16-18, 2021

    Lille vs Montpellier: Les Dogues are still on top of Ligue 1, and they'll obviously want to keep it that way. With a three point gap over reigning champs PSG, Christophe Galtier's men could temporarily extend that to six if they can earn a third straight league win, with their upcoming opponents set to be Montpellier. The visitors, who sit in eighth, are unbeaten in their last five, but have won just one of those games. Will this be an easy three points, or a potential banana peel for Lille, who are aiming to end PSG's reign as champions of France? 

    PSG vs Saint-Etienne: PSG rebounded well from their loss to Lille by taking out their frustrations against Strasbourg. A 4-1 away win has Mauricio Pochettino's men still hot on the heels of Les Dogues ahead of the visit of Saint-Etienne, who have started to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone after improving as of late. Les Verts will come into this tie having won three of their last five, but is that really enough to cause an upset at the Parc des Princes?

    Bordeaux vs Monaco: Monaco, who've won three on the spin and continue to force their way into title contention, will be seeking to take advantage of Bordeaux's awful form and put pressure on the top two sides. Their game takes place on Sunday, after both PSG and Lille are in action, so Niko Kovac will know where his side stand ahead of that tie. Bordeaux, for their part, have won just one of their last five and come into this upcoming clash having lost three in a row. They're six away from the drop zone, but look set to have a long day at the office if Monaco's recent resurgent form is any indicator.

    Nantes vs Lyon: To conclude proceedings, we have Lyon in action against Nantes to wrap up matchday 32. Les Gones will obviously need to win this game against the relegation candidates to keep pace with their fellow title contenders, as they sit in fourth spot and could be further behind in terms of points difference if all three ahead of them win their respective matches.
