With five rounds left to play, the suspense remains high at both ends of the Ligue 1 table. Although PSG have struggled, they still have hopes of being crowned French champions.
Meanwhile, Lens will face Toulouse on Tuesday evening (9pm CET) and then host Marseille on Saturday in a massive clash for the Champions League race and possibly the title. This week will also feature a crucial match in the relegation battle, with Brest hosting Nantes on Wednesday (9pm CET).
“Monaco and Marseille must be furious,” laments Montanier Following their victory in the Coupe de France final on Saturday, Toulouse will already be back in action on Tuesday, hosting Lens in the 33rd round of Ligue 1. While TFC seem to have already secured their top-flight status, Lens are currently battling for second place with Marseille and even the title. This scheduling has raised eyebrows, with Philippe Montanier expressing his surprise during a press conference:
“It’s inconvenient for us to play so early because it’s not very fair sportingly,” the TFC coach said. “We need to pay attention to sporting fairness. We would have preferred to play on Wednesday, like Nantes. Monaco and Marseille must be furious.”
