The final league that shows up on most acca insurance coupons is the French Ligue 1, where there are three fixtures. Caen v Monaco at 2pm, Dijon v Saint-Étienne at 4pm, and finally Paris Saint Germain v Lyon at 8pm.
League leaders Monaco have a hugely impressive goal difference of plus 58, and have already amassed 84 goals this season, almost bringing in the Over 2.5 Goals bet single handed in all of their league matches this season.
They are currently 3 points ahead of defending champions, PSG, so today is a really important round of fixtures in the race to be French league champions.
