The long-distance duel between Marseille and Paris goes on! Yet things were not easy for OM against Metz (3-1) or for PSG against Nantes (2-1). But the duo are still head and shoulders above the rest in this closely fought battle for Ligue 1. But, just below, Lyon, St-Etienne and Bordeaux aren’t going to give up easily! And although Rennes came a cropper against Montpellier (0-4), Monaco are on the rise again after their clear win at Toulouse (0-2). Are the ASM back? Everything’s set for a fascinating championship!
