France – Ligue 1
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
On the 19th-21st of May will come to their end the championships of EPL, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga and French Ligue 1. But for this month the final squads of the participants of the Champions League and Europa League season 2017/2018 must be completely built.
The most interesting now is French Ligue 1. As now PSG had met with worthy opponent to fight for a new title – Monaco.
The cup final matches attract attention
Olympique de Marseille has its own motivation. The team of Rudi Garcia is able to gain one berth for nest Europa League championship.
The name of future winner of the national cup will influence on the distribution of berths. Only 4 challengers are left here – PSG, Monaco, Guingamp, Angers. And if this elite trophy will be taken by one of the top clubs, than during next Europa League the 4th, 5th and even 6th team of the closing season will be playing.
But if the French Cup will be taken by Guingamp or Angers, Europa League will be played by the 4th and 5th teams and also by the fresh owner of the national cup.
To Lotharingia in order to gain 3 points!
So, what do we have now? Prior to 5 matches before the championship is finishing, the team of Rudi Garcia has 51 points and takes the 6th line. Olympique Lyonnais has 54 points and takes the 4th line, Bordeaux has 52 points and takes the 5th line. These are the main opponents. Two teams will surely take part at next Euro Cup tournament. Perhaps it would be Marseille.
But now the team of Rudi Garcia is catching the teams and it has to won over its rival from Nancy.
The bottom of the tournament bracket experiences real struggle. The main challengers to lose its table position are Bastia (28 points), Dijon (29), Lorient (31). But Nancy has 31 points and is ahead of Lorient due to the better goal difference.
It is obvious that Nancy has very fragile position and what is more important for the long period of time the team of Pablo Correa is constantly losing, both home and away matches. And that is why the possible winning of Marseille is sure.
Nancy – 3,30; draw – 3,50, Marseille – 2,10;
