This new Ligue 1 weekend, during which 22 goals were scored, made it possible to distinguish the trends of the championship, with 6 days remaining.

The big four breaks away

Undecided for a long time, the ranking of participants in the next edition of the Champions League is beginning to take shape. Thanks to a new victory on their lawn, Monaco and Lille have left the 5th Niçois behind. Respectively winners of OM (3-1) and Rennes (1-0), the two clubs remain on 3 victories in their last 5 matches. The surprising runner-up Brest signed his 15th victory of the season against Metz. The Pirates scared themselves at the end of the match by letting the Messins come back from 4-1 to 4-3, but the main thing is there.

Lyon takes advantage of the weaknesses of others

None of the clubs ranked 5th to 9th in Ligue 1 have postponed one of their last two matches. Worse, for its part, OM remains on three consecutive defeats. This situation is good for Olympique Lyonnais, who are making an improbable comeback. Last in Ligue 1 after 14 days, with only 7 points on the clock, the Lyonnais are only 6 points behind first place in Europe. An inconceivable prospect just a few weeks ago.

A 5-way fight to maintain

Thanks to its victory over Lorient, Montpellier has given itself some breathing room and 6 points ahead of its opponent of the weekend, the first jump-off. There are still 5 of them in the maintenance platoon. Metz and Nantes defeated by Brest (4-3) and Lyon (1-3) failed to take the slightest point. The valiant Clermontois miraculously brought back a point from the Parc des Princes (1-1), just like the Le Havre team in Lens (1-1) who have two points ahead of Lorient.
