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

Various 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 classification.

Paris takes place in Clermont

Great box of Parisians last Saturday on the Clermont side during which the “MNM” was in command. With a success of 6 goals to 1, PSG is slowly heading towards a 10th Ligue 1 crown. For their part, Clermont finds themselves against a wall and will have no choice but to get results in the next matches. In 17th place and one unit ahead of the ASSE (first relegation), the Jaunards expect two capital matches against maintenance candidates in the next 2 Ligue 1 matches, where they will face FC Metz (20th) and then Troyes. (15th).

Rennes confirms in Reims

7th victory in the last 8 league games for Stade Rennais, who garnered a key win last Saturday on the pitch in Reims (2-3). Accompanied by a very inspired Benjamin Bourigeaud and a Martin Terrier, Rennais assumes its status as the second best attack in the League, only behind PSG. With this dynamic, the Bretons are heading straight for a potential unexpected bid for the Champions League next season. Ranked 3rd, SRFC will, however, have two very important games in the coming weeks, as they will face AS Monaco (6th) and Strasbourg (4th) simultaneously.

Strasbourg can harbor regrets against Lyon

While leading quite comfortably for over an hour against OL, the Strasbourg players missed all three points on Carl Toko-Ekambi’s equalizing goal in the 90′. However, without serious consequences in the classification for the RCSA, which maintains an improbable 4th place and continues to be more than ever a candidate for European places. For its part, OL signs a new bad accounting operation and starts in 10th place, 5 units behind 5th Nice and one qualifying place in Europe.

Nice confirms its crisis in Lens

The Aiglons can no longer. Although they were comfortably PSG dolphins a few weeks earlier, the niçois signed this Sunday a fourth game without a win in the League (including 2 defeats) when they fell convincingly in Lens with a score of 3-0. Especially as Christophe Galtier’s men conceded two goals while playing on the power play for 40 minutes. In fact, the crisis is present in Nice, which is now up against the wall in its search for European places.

OM in Olympic form

The Marseilles signed a 7th consecutive success (all competitions combined) this Sunday against Montpellier (2-0) and confirm a superb dynamic. Solid runners-up to PSG, three lengths ahead of third-placed Rennes, the Olympians are clearly in a favorable position to secure a place in the Champions League next season. However, he is suspicious. Without a doubt, the OM awaits his most dangerous trip the next day, in the Parc des Princes, where he could lose his precious advantage in the event of a bad result.
