The stakes were indeed multiple this Saturday evening, on all floors even if the PSG was already crowned champion of France. Other places could be allocated according to the results, starting with the second.

OM went to Rennes. Difficult move for the Phocaeans. Very superior to an Olympian formation without ideas, the Bretons resumed their march towards the Champions League thanks to this great victory. OM, unable to find offensive solutions throughout this duel, slipped in the standings and saw Monaco steal their 2nd place. Everything will be decided on the 38th and last day. Bourigeaud and Majer are the Rennes scorers in the first period.
Embarrassed during the first act by Brestois who boldly played their luck, AS Monaco players were inspired by their captain Ben Yedder, author of a hat-trick and leader of the revolt. The Azureans reach 2nd place in the ranking tied with Marseille (68 pts). Final score 4-2, with a hat-trick from Ben Yedder, including a goal from the penalty spot and an achievement by Volland a quarter of an hour from the end.
Already champions, PSG went to Hérault where they atomized Montpellier 0-4, including a double from Messi and a goal from Di Maria. Kylian Mbappé stood out from the penalty spot on the hour mark, he who was involved in all three goals in addition to having shot the post in the first act. The MHSC aligns an eighth day without a win.
Despite a good start to the match with a first goal obtained from the quarter of an hour thanks to Biancone, the Trojans fell against Lensois who did not give up. The latter equalized thanks to Danso in the 42nd minute and took the advantage in stride thanks to Kalimuendo. A sublime free kick from Clauss concluded the match. The Lensois can still believe in Europe.
Strasbourg, for its part, clung to 5th place while Clermont, its evening opponent, maintained itself after the match between the two teams this Saturday evening. The Alsatians scored the only goal of the game thanks to Thomasson in the 28th minute.
