‘There’s A Bit More Suspense’ — Paredes On This Season’s Tight Ligue 1 Title Race

Paris Saint-Germain is in the midst of one of the more unpredictable Ligue 1 title races in years.

PSG maintains a first place standing in the league table, but unlike in previous years at this point in the season, the French powerhouse does not have a sizeable lead over the rest of the title contenders.

For Leandro Paredes, he welcomes the challenge that other teams in the league are posting to PSG. The Argentine spoke to PSG TV about this season’s title race.

“The teams are stronger this season, they’ve all improved in every area and they’re very competitive,” Paredes said. “There are some very good players in the teams at the top of the table.

“That’s why the league is difficult to win. There’s a bit more suspense, which is great for football and the fans. We’ll have to be at our best in this final straight.”

PSG’s rollercoaster form so far in league play this season has proved to be one reason as to why the side is in such a tight title race. For instance, the French powerhouse came away with losses against the likes of Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille earlier this season.

While PSG is now beginning to catch momentum at this point in the season, the side could still use a winning streak in order to begin to create separation away from the rest of the title contenders in the league table.
