Displaced last night by Rennes (25 points) from second place, Lens (24) seems in a good position to regain the sub-leadership, considering that he will visit the discreet Stade Brestois, located in 17th place at the Francis-Le Blé stadium, with just 12 points and two wins in his 13 previous starts on the court.

Nice (23) will also start as a clear favorite on his trip to Gabriel Montpied, where the promoted Clermont (13) awaits him, a team that is in the fifteenth. In the match of the day, Marseille (23) will play a classic against Olympique de Lyon (19) at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

The day before, PSG (37) consolidated their lead at the top by defeating Nantes 3-1, with Kylian Mbappé’s seventh goal and Lionel Messi’s first in Ligue1.

With the Parisians as undoubted favorites to regain the title loaned last season to the now disappointing Lille, the fight for second place is very interesting, as UEFA only grants two direct spots to the French competition for the Champions League.

This Sunday there will also be the matches Strasbourg (18) -Reims (12), Angers (18) -Lorient (15), Metz (eight) -Bordeaux (12) and Troyes (13) -Saint-Etienne (nine).
