France – Ligue 1.
Match start: 21:00 (GMT+1)
5 top national Leagues are finishing this stage of the championships in different ways. If, for example, Bayern München in Bundesliga (Germany) and Juventus Turin (Italian Serie A) continue climbing the Olympus all alone, in La Liga (Spain) and Ligue 1 (France) the fight of Barcelona and Real and Monaco and PSG respectively has reached its climax.
The most difficult test for the champion
According to the results of 34 last rounds the champions’ race of the French leadership is as follow:
Monaco – 80 (33), PSG – 80 (34), Nice – 74 (34) , Bordeaux - 55 (34) …
The current first place of the Monegasques is gained due to the better difference of scored and missed goals and also the team of Leonardo Jardim has one catch-up match (17th of May) against Saint-Étienne.
But the Parisians have already played all catch-up matches. And now the team of Unai Emery is facing the most difficult match at the end of this season as the closest opponent will be Nice.
The minimal squad losses of the guests at Allianz Riviera
The team of Unai Emery came to Cote d'-Azur practically in its ideal squad. The team is lacking the left winger Layvin Kurzawa and attacking halfback Hatem Ben Arfa. But with Ángel Fabián Di María, Julian Draxler, Javier Pastore no one is speaking about Lucas, the former crucial playmaker of Nice, and instead of Layvin Kurzawa the Brazilian Maxwell.
It is obvious that the coaches of the champion are waiting only for a winning during this away match. And the most interesting fact is that the hosts of the arena headed by Mario Balotelli, Jean Michaël Seri, Valentin Eysseric and others don’t need anything as it has already ensured the 3rd place at the Champions League. And the hosts of Allianz Riviera don’t want anything else. But still, this match can surprise us…
