Paris-Saint Germaine’s dominance of Ligue 1 could come to a shocking end on the final matchday as they travel to take on Brest. The match schedules for Sunday at Stade Francis-Le Ble, with kickoff at 10 pm.
Mauricio Pochetino’s men remain one point behind league leaders Les Dogues. A win remains a must for PSG while hoping their rivals drop points with Angers. On the other hand, Brest is battling for survival after a poor run of form.

The goalless stalemate with 10-man Montpellier could prove costly for Olivier Dall’Oglio. It is a fall from grace given a few months ago, Dall’Oglio tipped off, leading the side to a European spot.
The fate for Nimes and Dijon looks sealed in the relegation battle. However, relegation playoff spots await the last victims.
In contrast, Mauricio Pochettino might get off to a disappointment by losing out on the Ligue One race this weekend. However, Pochettino heads into the clash with a long-awaited piece of silverware by defeating Monaco in the Coupe de France.
