Going into the final day of the Premier League, everything, with the exception of the Champions League places still being up for grabs, is pretty much wrapped up, and in fairness there's probably not going to be much to shout home about unlike previous seasons.

But in France, specifically the second tier, it's quite the opposite and we could be in for one of the most dramatic final days in football history.

That's because going into the final day of the Ligue 2 season, which takes place at 19:30 tonight, a staggering six teams still have a realistic chance of winning the league. Talk about unpredictability.

The format in the division is more or less identical to the Championship, with the top three teams advancing to Ligue One; one as champions, one as runners up. However the striking difference is that France's football federation adopts the same approach as Germany with the team that finishes in third-place in the second tier squaring off in a play-off against the team that ends the season in the final relegation spot in the top tier.

Strasbourg are currently leading the pack on 64 points ahead of their visit of Bourg en Bresse, but they know that there's no margin for error as a host of clubs could seize opportunity and snatch the title on the final day.

Amiens occupy second place but only by two goals, as Troyes are also on 63 points and lie in third place. RC Lens, who are responsible for producing household names Raphael Varane, Thorgan Hazard and Geoffrey Kondogbia, are in fourth place having accrued 62 points so far, while Brest, who were leading the way not too long ago, are breathing down their necks with the very same points tally, but are seven goals behind.

Completing the six-way scramble is Nimes, who have amassed 61 points and are still in with an outside chance of winning the title, and promotion to the promise land.

Here is what the table looks like in full:

The final day fixtures are as follows:

Strasbourg vs Bourg en Bresse

Sochaux vs Troyes

Reims vs Amiens

Lens vs Niort

Brest vs Ajaccio

Laval vs Nîmes

The Daily Mail have noted the following permutations for what should be a cracking final day:

If you can manage to locate some dodgy streams tonight, then it promises to be quite something. Let the fun commence.
