France: Ligue 1
Match start: 20:00 (GMT+1)
In the second half of the current French season PSG will continue to climb on champion Olympus. At the same time Olympique lyonnais, Marseille and Monaco will fight for two more berths into next Champions League tournament.
And what team will represent France in the Europa League? It will be the third wheel in the fight for the second and third places. And also Nantes (5th place), Nice (6th place) and several other teams which are up in the air.
Nice (the head coach Lucien Favre)
Here Nantes, Nice and their possible rivals entirely depend on an outcome of two final matches of the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue. If Parisians, Olympique Lyonnais, Marseille and Monaco get these trophies, then the 5th and 6th final places will become the checkpoints into the Europa League.
Lucien Favre’s team hopes to get such development of events (34 points) and is fighting for the fifth position with Nantes (37 points) and is getting ready for the forthcoming match with Les Pitchouns.
Toulouse (acting head coach Mickaël Debève)
Alas! The ambitious desire of the former coach of Les Pitchouns Pascal Duprat which was well voiced in the press to build the club in Toulouse of the European level has been ruined finally.
On the 22nd of January Duprat has been dismissed. And his position with the "acting" prefix was held by former midfielder of Lens and Le Havre Mickaël Debève who doesn't have any experience with teams of an elite division.
Now Toulouse takes the 19th place and becomes one of the main candidates for decrease in a class. And in this situation it is very difficult to understand and comprehend the choice of the team’s bosses.
Last season the meeting of current rivals at Allianz Riviera has ended with definite victory of the hosts (3:0). Taking into account the present level of the game of Toulouse the similar result is quite possible this time .
