The France international, who left Parc des Princes for Barcelona, believes the experience at his former club will see them defend their crown

Former Paris Saint-Germain full-back Lucas Digne has backed the French champions to win a fifth successive Ligue 1 title.

PSG have dominated French football since Qatar Sports Investments' takeover in 2011, but the capital club find themselves adrift of Monaco this season.

Digne: Payet always loved Marseille

Monaco top the table by three points after 26 rounds, with both teams also challenging in the last-16 stage of the Champions League.

But as PSG prepare to travel to Marseille on Sunday, Barcelona left-back and France international Digne – who won two Ligue 1 crowns during his time in Paris before moving to Camp Nou in July – believes the experience of Unai Emery's men will see them defend their crown.

"Monaco and PSG are two very good teams," Digne told Omnisport.

"Paris have quality players and I think it will be between these two teams. It'll be close until the end."

Pushed further to pick a winner, Digne replied: "Maybe PSG because of the experience."

Ibra: PSG will always talk about me

PSG were held to a goalless draw by Toulouse last time out, having routed Barca 4-0 in the first leg of the Champions League knockout clash.

Meanwhile, Monaco drew 1-1 with Bastia before going down 5-3 to Manchester City in a thriller.

Monaco are away to Guingamp on Saturday.
