Ligue 1: Marseille and Rennes big winners of the weekend, Nice back to the wall

Several Ligue 1 clubs are involved in this crazy and exciting race for European places. Yesterday ended the 31st day of the championship, an opportunity to take stock of the weekend and the changes in the standings.

Paris takes place in Clermont

Big box of Parisians last Saturday on the side of Clermont in which the “MNM” was in charge. With a success of 6 goals to 1, PSG is slowly but surely moving towards a 10th crown in Ligue 1. Clermont, for his part, finds himself against the wall again and will have no choice but to book results in the next encounters. In 17th place and one unit for ASSE (first relegation), the Jaunards face two main matches against maintenance candidates in the next 2 Ligue 1 matches, where they will challenge FC Metz (20th) and Troyes (15th).

Rennes confirms in Reims

7th victory in the last 8 league matches for Stade Rennais, which achieved a decisive success on the lawn of Reims (2-3) last Saturday. Joined by a highly inspired Benjamin Bourigeaud and a Martin Terrier, the Rennais take their status as the second best striker in the League, just behind PSG. With these dynamics, the Bretons are heading straight for an unexpected potential candidacy for next season’s Champions League. Ranked 3rd, the SRFC will nevertheless hold two all-important meetings in the coming weeks as they will simultaneously meet AS Monaco (6th) and Strasbourg (4th).

Strasbourg can harbor regrets against Lyon

While they led quite comfortably against OL for well over an hour, Strasbourg’s players missed the three points on Carl Toko-Ekambi’s equalizer in the 90′. However, no serious ramifications in the standings for the RCSA who maintain an unlikely 4th place and remain a candidate for European places more than ever. OL, for their part, signs another bad bookkeeping and starts up to 10th place, 5 units of 5th Nice and a qualifying place in Europe.

Nice confirms crisis in Lens

The Aiglons can’t take it anymore. While comfortably dolphins of PSG a few weeks earlier, de Niçois signed a fourth game without a win in the league (including 2 losses) this Sunday by coming down hard at Lens with a score of 3-0. Especially since Christophe Galtier’s men conceded two goals while playing on the power play for 40 minutes. The crisis is indeed present in Nice, which now finds itself against the wall again in its search for European places.

OM in Olympic form

The Marseillais recorded a 7th consecutive victory (all competitions combined) against Montpellier (2-0) this Sunday, confirming an excellent dynamic. The Olympians are solid second to PSG, three lengths ahead of third-placed Rennes. The Olympians are clearly in a good position to secure a place in the Champions League next season. But mistrust. OM certainly awaits their most dangerous journey the next day, in the Parc des Princes, where a bad result could lose their precious lead.
