PARIS: Second-placed Lille were held to a 1-1 draw at Stade Reims on Sunday to leave leaders Paris St Germain on the brink of an eighth Ligue 1 title.

Rui Fontes’ second-half opener was cancelled out by Reims’ Remi Oudin to leave Lille on 61 points with seven games left.

PSG, who have 80 points, will clinch the title if they beat Racing Strasbourg at the Parc des Princes later on Sunday (1900GMT).

At Reims’ Auguste Delaune stadium, Fonte headed home 10 minutes into the second half from a Thiago Mendes corner.

Oudin equalised 12 minutes from fulltime with a low shot after being set up by Tristan Dingome.

Reims are sixth on 47 points.
