PSG have the title all wrapped up going into their final fixture, while Reims can grab seventh if results elsewhere this weekend work in their favour

PSG will travel to Reims for their last match of the season on Friday, and will be looking to put the exclamation mark on their league campaign by finishing with a win after already clinching the title.

Reims, on the other hand, will be going all out in the hope that they can pinch seventh, but will need Nice and Nimes to slip up in order to get there.

PSG take on Reims in the last game of the season in what should be a relatively straight forward affair.

Thomas Tuchel’s side will want to end this season on a high after crashing out of the Champions League against Manchester United despite holding a two-goal advantage, and losing the French Cup to Rennes on penalties.

In the league, the Paris side have been dominant, even if they slipped up a couple of times in their attempt to seal the league title early on, and this final game of the season could be the last match in PSG colours for a few of their players.

That isn’t the only issue Tuchel faces, with several players out of the squad, including Thiago Silva, who has only just re-joined training according to the manger:

“He’s doing his first training with us, but he will not play,” said Tuchel.

The champions will be without their star man Neymar on Friday, as he is suspended for this match and has reportedly left the French capital to link up with the Brazil squad ahead of the Copa America. There are rumours circulating on whether or not he was allowed to miss the final game, and when asked if it was him who allowed the forward to leave, Tuchel responded: “Not by me. It’s not something sporting, it’s not for me to make the decision to release him or not.”

PSG come into this game on a good run of recent form, with back-to-back wins against Angers and Dijon, thrashing the latter 4-0.

In stark contrast, Reims scraped through their last match with a 1-0 win over Bordeaux, when they only had a third of the possession and, in the two games before that, they lost 3-0 and 3-2 to Nimes and Caen respectively, but they did manage to get a point out of their last home game with PSG back in 2015, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
