PARIS — Lille needs only one point from Saturday's match against Paris Saint-Germain to guarantee winning its first French title since 1954 and its first double since 1946.
Second-place Marseille trails Lille by six points with two matches remaining and has a worse goal difference. Marseille's thin title hopes will be over if it fails to beat Valenciennes at home.
Lille hopes to be celebrating on Saturday night, but PSG must beat Lille at home to stay in contention for third and a place in the Champions League qualifying round.
Sealing the title at Parc des Princes would be a particularly sweet moment for Lille goalkeeper Mickael Landreau, who had an unhappy three-year spell at PSG before joining Lille.
