Will PSG run away with the title again?
That’s what we think. Aside from AS Monaco’s title triumph in 2016-17, it’s been Les Parisiens every season since the 2010s began.
With Kylian Mbappé spearheading one of the most exciting attacks in Europe, PSG should (again) continue their monopoly of domestic hardware. The only trophy to elude the capital club is the Champions League. After shocking exit at the hands of Manchester United and Barcelona in years past, can PSG make a deeper run this year? Will Neymar contribute to the cause before a likely summer departure?
In any case, don’t forget to set up your VPN and secure your internet while you watch French Ligue 1!
