Mauricio Pochettino on Ligue 1 title race: “Lille’s victory brings them closer to the title.”

Speaking in a press conference on Saturday, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino discussed Lille’s 3-0 victory over Lens, which puts them four points clear of Les Parisiens in the Ligue 1 title race ahead of PSG’s Sunday clash with Rennes.

“Lille’s victory certainly brings them closer to the title. It puts, us, in the situation of having to win on Sunday to reduce the gap, but also to win our other matches to stay in the race whilst waiting to see if they drop points. It could maybe move things in the race for the title. But our aim is to win the 3 matches that remain, we will then see, if that gives us an opportunity.”
