The suspense in the Ligue 1 title race appears to already be over, with Paris Saint-Germain 10 points clear and unbeaten after 12 matches, leaving the rest of the top flight to battle for lesser honors.Seven-time champions Lyon are second and ahead on goal difference above Angers as well as their arch-rivals Saint-Etienne, who visit the Stade Gerland in the weekend's feature match Sunday.Another telling statistic is that apart from PSG and Monaco, the other four French clubs that have qualified for the Champions League – Lyon, Marseille, Lille and Montpellier – have won just one match between them in 22 matches at the top continental level since 2012 .Lille continue to rebuild under two-time Africa Cup of Nations winner Herve Renard, but the road looks long for the 2011 champions after just two wins this season left them three points above the relegation zone.
