Lille has the opportunity to end PSG consecutive championships and win the trophy.


's former striker Eder claimed that it would be something huge for French football if Lille win the tittle.

Christophe Galtier's men could clinch the title on Sunday if they win against Saint-Etienne, but only if they do better than Paris Saint-Germain against Reims.

Even if it takes the last week, a three-point lead and two games ahead puts Lille in charge. Paris Saint-Germain have won seven of their last eight league games, but the former striker believes the Lille title could help French football a lot.

"I think it's amazing for the championship because a lot of people have been saying that the French championship is PSG and no others,"

he told Stats Perform.

"I think that a lot of people, a lot of teams this year have been proving that they are there to compete with PSG, like Lyon and Monaco. They are having a great season.

"Lille have been doing amazingly well and I think that this is going to be something huge for French football."
